now, do take your time because it does appear that both

The buyer needs to find out how band saws are measured.maybe his attitude toward those who are not like him clouded his judgment.

The buyer said that you measure the size of the bandsaw from the table up to where the blade ends…... umm no. I think he is a bit confused between throat clearance and the size of the bandsaw which is the diameter of the wheels. Not sure if the bandsaw is a delta though…

I think the seller was wrong in his approach to the situation. Show the tag, show the measurement and then leave it at that. Don’t get into something that might get totally out of control. Some not so responsible people carry guns also and you never know what might happen.

The buyer needs to be sure of the facts before correcting someone else. Delta ?

I would have told the buyer to get out of my store as well.

That is a pretty good price… for an 18” band saw… which is what it was.
