Since most are made in China or Taiwan, I’d assume you could get a new one easier than from the USA.

Go to to connect to an Asian source. They have quite a selection of band saws and break the sources down to the country of origin. I don’t know what the quality is, but at least they are willing to sell One Piece and shipping should be reasonable since you are close by.

Any other suggestions guys?

Look out for an old one. I really love mine. Depends on what you desire really. I have an old 18” Oliver from 1923. The older ones are simple, SOLID, easy to work on, smooth and quiet, and made in the USA. It took me a long time to find mine, but they come up now and then. Talk to the guys on, they can give you a lot of advice on machinery. Join there online forum, and just ask some questions. My advice is buy an older used machine in good condition. I really am a big proponent of good quality equipment. The older used stuff is going cheap nowdays. With a little TLC its way better than the new stuff. Look for brands like Walker-Turner, old Delta, Oliver, Yates, Davis and Wells. Just be patient, there out there.
