Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw powermatic

I’ve been looking for a good bandsaw on CL for a while. I found this about 2 hours away. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this bandsaw and if it was a good buy. I am well aware of Powermatics reputation. Just hard pressed to drop 450 when I can get a new Grizzly for the same price.

I’d pass, though that is a good little machine and, with the new Carter guides, ought to be a sweet performer. Still, that’s pretty steep for a used 14”(?). For 3 bills, I’d be tempted. Offer him $250 and see where it goes.
