Not long ago I made a blog entry inwhich I discussed the furture purchase of a band saw. Allow me to thank all those who added their insightful thoughts and suggestions. I would have liked to purchase a brand new band saw but that just wasn’t going to happen. So, back to Craig’s List I went. As I searched CL I came across a listing for a 14” Wood Band Saw. What I discovered is that the band saw was a Cummins Mack 14” band saw. The seller was asking $100. I contacted the seller on April 25 and he informed that someone was coming to take a look at it on April 26. So, I left it at that and decided that I would call back. Well, I did call back and evidently the person who, was suppose to look at it, didn’t buy it. Upon hearing that I waisted no time in buying the band saw. The seller was even kind enough to follow me back to my house with it in his truck. Here it is:

Now all I need to do is clean it and give it a good tune up. I will keep you posted on the progress. Thanks for looking.
