He is asking $150 for it. Here are some better pictures below. What model is this saw? Anyone have some good advice about it?

Probably late 60’s, early 70’s, Rockwell/Delta. Similar to my 9” Powr-Kraft but better. No miter slot which is a pain in the butt. Probably 1/3hp motor. $120 is a little heavy for what it is but that’s probably what it would sell for around here. Some came with plastic body covers, although that one looks metal.

DavidTTU, I would sell you my Craftsman 12” for 120. It will cut circles around that thing.

I’d be interested Dallas. I just don’t think I am heading over to Franklin anytime soon. If I do, I will be sure to get in touch. Also, if you ever get out West to Lubbock and still want to sell it let me know.

Craftsman must have sold eleventy billion of those 12” bandsaws, they are constantly on Craigslist here. $120 seems to be the going rate. I looked at one for $50 and it vibrated like a squirrel on meth. In retrospect I should have bought it, probably just needed a little TLC.
