Cruising around on c/l, I found an ad for a fella selling his bandsaw.

Here’s his info:

”I am selling my Powermatic Model 043 14” Band Saw. I have used it very lightly in my hobby as a woodworker. The saw comes with its original stand and a rolling base. It is all in good shape.

This band saw was made in Taiwan for Powermatic. It has a 3/4 HP motor that is presently wired for 220 VAC (it can easily be changed back to run on 110 VAC).

I have added a rip fence (shown in the photos) that has a re-saw attachment. The band saw came equipped with ball-bearing blade guides on both the upper and lower blade guides (the photo is of the upper guide). I updated the table angle adjusters to the Model 044 system; this allows for easy angle adjustment of the table.

The tires on the band saw wheels are in good condition. The only problem with the saw is some of the paint has “jumped off” in spots (it looks like the metal was not primed). Despite this there is no rust on the saw.”

The pics look great…I’m not in the market for one, but for $400, I might be. I have an older craftsman 12” and it serves it’s purposes, but I’m not sure when I’d see a deal like this…if it is a deal…again.
