16” resaw (at least 3/4” less with the sled I’m currently using – haven’t done anything over 14” so far and really hadn’t planned to as that’s big enough for these old bones to handle), 17” throat, foot brake, height 77”, weight 473 lbs., rack and pinion, cast iron trunion, 5HP motor (1 or 3 phase), 1/8” – 1 3/8” blade capacity, European top/bottom bearing guides, 220 volt breaker (1 or 3 phase), and dynamically balanced cast iron wheels.
The sled is a shop built apparatus that actually allows the user to mill lumber if they want to. This is a top of the line bandsaw and will give many years of service to whomever gets it. I used it to slab the tops, backs, and bottoms of fireplace mantels but can’t justify keeping it just for that purpose.
Package deal: bandsaw and sled combo $2700. The bandsaw by itself is $2400 (cash only either way). Original price of just the bandsaw was $2695 plus freight. Three extra blades of different sizes are also included (never used). The blade on the saw right now has been used, but not much and is still sharp.
Won’t be able to provide shipping or delivery (would cost me way too much), so if you are interested, you’ll need to come to sunny Colorado (if you don’t already live here) for a visit and pickup.
