The big question is, do you think my wife will notice it?

I love IRS auctions. So much awesome up for bidding. I always want to buy stuff on there, but the auctions are never close enough to me to justify the drive.

That would look great next to my Crescent jointer, probably of the same era. Getting it and making space would be another (big) problem.

IF I was to bid on and win this beast … I probably wouldn’t be able to afford the blades for it!
36inch wheels? DANG!

And from the pix, it look like that’s the only thing left in that building.

Heck of a saw… Keep in mind one thing if you are purchasing this saw.. According to the details this is a 3 phase saw… Check on the availability of it for you at your shop and/or location… Or check on the price of a phase converter for that saw.. I know a couple of people that have purchased things from them in the past…

I also see that their is an auction for a woodworking and Moulding company that closes this weekend…

Hmmm..

My dad had a 48” band saw in his shop years ago. The wheel spokes were steel but the rims of the wheels were wood with rubber tires bonded on. capacity was about 24” high. it had a platform to get high enough to use the saw. It was a “pattern” saw not a resaw.

Fired this one up Tuesday and test ran some material Thursday. blade is 3” wide. capacity is 64” high. it has a sliding/gliding table system.

Those big saw often sell pretty cheap due to the weight,
complexity of moving them and concerns over repairs
like replacing vulcanized tires ($$). That, and most
shops don’t need a saw that large, as impressive as they
are.

There must be something wrong with me because those things draw me like a magnet draws iron. Glad I can’t afford them or have room for them.

In upholstery supply places they have these enormous
band saws for cutting foam. They have 4 wheels I think,
and the blade has no teeth. I think there’s a rolling
carriage. It doesn’t really look like a band saw.

Have your say...
