I’ve seen deals like this several times before. There are a couple
of issues with machines in this class: weight, how to move it, and
headroom in your shop.

This one probably weighs close to a ton and about 9’ tall. The price is pretty good.

I think I’m going to buy it. You can’t beat that price. My buddy has a new Nissan truck that he says is pretty tough. I’ll see if he want’s to drive to L.A. and throw it in the back for me. I’ll buy the gas. Yeah, right. I’d love to have it, it would beat the hell out of my Skil 9”. But, I don’t think it would even fit in my back yard, much less my shop.

-- I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. I'm sorry,thanks.

We have five 36” band saws on site where I work, and OSHA would eat us for lunch if any one of them looked like that.

We get burned whenever a blade guard isn’t as low as practical, or if the interlock switch on the doors are inoperable.

After being heavily involved in upgrading our safety program for the last five years, I’ve lost all of my fondness for old industrial tools.

That’s some large equipment ,much larger than most folks working out of their garage would need,but this might be great for someone with a larger shop that wants to restore so oldies but goody’s.

Whoa! That thing is sweet, and looks like a candidate for Evpo Rust. Hmmm. 9 feet. That mean if be sticking up in my dining room a bit… I can deal with that…

When I have to get big machines down in my basement, my milling machine was a bear, taking it apart as much as you can and reassembling it worked for me. You’d have the added advantage to do any restoration to it while it’s apart.
