Like many of you, I patrol craigslist once a month or so just to see what is out there. I always have a few tools in mind to look for. I found this bandsaw yesterday and wanted to see if any of you have ever seen, used, or owned this saw. It is a 16” Yates American. No info on electrical.
Seems to me like I could buy a new motor, tires, and blades and I would have a well functioning, heavy saw for about $500 or so, total. I am wondering how this saw performs and what the resaw capabilities are with it.
I love old American power tools and I try to snatch them up when I see them for cheap.
