Topic tags/keywords: northfield bandsaw

Hi everyone, I inherited a Northfield 36” HD band saw that my dad had to get out of his shop. She is a beauty and pretty much new, but I don’t think I will fully utilize her in the long term. My shop is too small. Is there anyone that would be interested in it let me know. Thanks. Darren

That would do a custom lowering job on my pickup as well as my bank account, but I wish I had a shop to
put it in. Thank you for upping the drool factor here.

Yeah what those guys said. If I had the space for it I’d be all over it like a cheap suit!

Those saws are so heavy you may have a hard time finding a
buyer interested enough to give you a price you like and
in the hassle of moving it. I have seen 36” saws for sale for
months on Craigslist for $500 with no takers. That said,
ask on the OWWM.com forums because some of those
collectors have both the equipment and desire to acquire
and move such heavy machines.

Anyway, it’s a beauty to be sure.

I’d love to own it. I have the room for it. I could make good use of it.

Now the problem is the money. I’m positive, would bet money on it, that it cost way more than I could possibly afford.

I had a strange feeling that MedicKen might show up, on this one ;-)

Saw like that comes in real handy, when you have to cut down kitchen cabinets and stuff LOL !
