Was driving around this weekend and saw someone selling an old bandsaw. I didn’t have time to get out of the car and check it out, however, it did peek my curiosity.
I saw that it was a Rockwell/Beaver model. It seemed rather old (can sometimes be a good thing, right!) and it seemed to have it’s belt exposed on the back. It had a small table (1 sq ft at most, maybe 10” square).
Since I didn’t get out of the car, I don’t know what length of blades it accepts nor what kind of motor it has…
it did look kind of like this one, maybe even older (edit: or it might of been missing the back cover):
So…could this be worth rescuing? I’d want something that is semi-decent. I want a do everything bandsaw, except I don’t care about resawing for now. I do want to be able to cut 2” thick pieces of wood though.
No idea on the price (not even sure it still works)...but the guy had it in his driveway the entire weekend and it didn’t seem to sell.
