Can you post for sale ads on LumberJocks? I’ve decided to sell my Ridgid bandsaw. It’s been on Craig’s List for a few days, but I’m not willing to let it go for a song and a dance. It’s an excellent tool, and I’m loathe to part with it, but I’ve gotten into a situation where I’m faced a tough decision.
It’s a Ridgid BS14002 with some modifications to fix the recent lack of quality control. The upper wheel was extremely out of balance—I balanced it by adding and removing some weight. I also added a piece of MDF to the underside of the stand to add stiffness and help reduce vibration. I also changed the v-belt to a size that can actually be tensioned.
The bandsaw goes for $400 new—is it too much to ask for $250 for it? And is $0.50/mi too much to deliver it? I wouldn’t drive it more than an hour or so from my Winston-Salem North Carolina home, so that I don’t have a ton of time tied up in delivering it… Of course, I could always arrange to ship it on a truck is someone wanted it that bad.
I hope that it goes to a good home….
