Not the world’s greatest saw, but I Got it on Craigslist for $95.

Central Machinery 14” bandsaw. Nearly new and in excellent condition.

Seemed like a pretty smoking deal to me. Couldn’t even bring myself to haggle with the seller.

No upgrades. Just the stock saw.

Not bad for $95, the current model is selling for $359.99 at HF.

AAHHH I am so jealous! I just bought one! LOL I got it for $250 with sale and 25% coupon on easter. Don’t forget to call them and order the riser kit! You have to call their parts line and give them the model number. It comes with everything. Riser, guard, guide even a blade. It cost around… wait for it… $95!! :)

Great deal. I love CL. Most of my major purchases have come from there.

“Couldn’t even bring myself to haggle with the seller”...Good on you for not doing that.

I look at posts here or on OWWM and people gloat about seeing a machine already listed at a bottom feeder price and haggling it down even lower. If I think a seller has a fair price and I want something bad enough I won’t insult them. Have fun with your new baby.

Phhhft. MY local craigslist usually tends to have old crappy stuff at about 95% retail pricing or above.
