This popped up on the Knoxville CL today. Pretty cool old bandsaw. Looks like you could have cut a house in half with it!

I’ll bet you could find an old wagon wheel and put on there :)

Someone into OWWM will snap it up, maybe not for $600. It definitely is NOT a boat anchor. Parts are out there.

Looks like a good project saw if they lower the price to a reasonable range. The parts may be around some
where, but it will take a while to find them, and/or make them.

A lot of the saws that old had wood wheels, like
wagon wheels sort of.

Somebody probably nicked the ornate top wheel to use
as home decor.
