Hey there all, not on long as I need to go get it set up and try it out but wanted to let all interested know about my experience last night… My wife was able to trick me into going to Lowes after a 4.5 hr return trip from Chicago Land Speedway Nationwide races saying that she needed to attain forceps needle nose pliers for her vet tech course.

The real reason was that she wished to provide me with the bandsaw I have been eyeing for the better part of the year… Happy Bday, Father’s Day, and Anniversary :) Gotta love the woman!!!

This bandsaw is regularly $450 but, and the important reason for sharing this, Lowes will no longer being carrying them If anyone is in the market for a new bandsaw at discount I was able to get the floor model for $375 and was also able apply 10% military discount which meant more blades and other toys… Really is like Toy’s R US!!! Anyways here is my first forum posting at LJs, hope that the info assists someone needing an excuse to attain a new bandsaw :)

Thanks, works great but certainly need to hurry up on a table/fence build if I’m going to get in on the bandsaw box with a twist… Will certainly add a number of options which I’m excited about…
