These are pictures BEFORE I cleaned it up! The table needs a little TLC, other than that the guy used it only a handful of times and it has been sitting idle for a couple of years! He gave me 3 additional blades as well.

Gloatworthy for sure. Doesn’t even look broken in, yet.

Nice find – that thing looks great! I picked up the 12” model in the same pristine condition with fence, miter gauge, and mobile base for $100 a few weeks ago. I would’ve preferred the 14” saw, but oh well.

Nice find! I, myself, picked up a 14” Porter Cable bandsaw with a Kreg Fence and Mobile base for $250. No complaints here! I’m still learning how to use the thing, but the owner was quite proficient in its’ use so it should be mostly fine tuned.

Good deal, you’ll love having a bandsaw in the shop. I use my 14” delta all the time, extremely useful tool.

I have a dozen year old 9” Craftsman. It actually does most everything I need, but not quite. I’ve used it a lot.

Sweet! Looks like a nice machine!

Looks like the BAS350/rikon clone , but way nicer. Have fun

It’s the predecessor to the BAS350 and it is a RIKON. It came with a fence and cast iron wheels and the best I can tell it is a cross between the RIKON 10-321 and 10-325 in terms of features. I think it’s nicer than the BAS350. I wish it had a tension quick release.

That was my first band saw years ago, its a nice unit and will perform. I wouldn’t use any blade wider than 1/2 and no more than 4tpi type blades. Also the title does apply “YOU SUCK”
