Someone is selling this band saw on CL and I am considering buying it. Does anyone know anything about it? The label shows a manufacturing date of 1990. Too old? What about parts availability?

Never seen the band saw, but I had an Ohio Forge benchtop table saw decades ago.. Ohio Forge was a Home Depot store brand, made in some overseas factory and then painted/labeled to the customers spec. It was about as cheap a table saw as you could find, but it got it’s fair share of abuse until it finally died years later. I doubt you can get direct replacement parts for that band saw, but if it’s like most of the imports, it’s a clone of the Delta so alternatives may exist.

Cheers,
Brad
