Ahoy yall!

Can anyone help me identify this from a local craigslist listing? Please?

The time has come….I have been pining to add a bandsaw to my shop for quite some time now…and I am going to pull the trigger on one…question is this one that I should look into?

Admittedly, I am deffinately not a “Craftsman Guy” (at least not their recent equip.) but the phrase ” made in Germany for Craftsman ” caught my attention.

A google search for information really did not turn up any usefull leads. Which is another concern when it comes to parts, tech support etc.

Thanks for any input that you can lend me fellow sawdust brothers and sisters

I think it’s likely the same as the Dayton brand sold by Grainger. If
from Germany it may be a rebadged Meber.

Sears contracts tools out to different specs. Craftsman had some
sweet bandsaws made by Parks in the 1960s. It’s not all homeowner
quality stuff.

The price the seller wants seems high to me, but if you want to cut
metals a combo bandsaw could be good for you.

Does it have a brake?
