Yeah, $175 max is all I would go.
I’ve had one just like it for 25 years. I sold it for 125 ten years ago and after I retired and started woodworking again realized I really like a band saw for little quick cuts. I casually mentioned to the fellow I sold it to that I really should have never sold it. He sold it back for $100.
Can’t complain about it. I like the big table. The lower blade adjustments are a bear to get to, but that may be common on most saws.
Buy some GOOD blades and it cuts fine. I resaw up to the 6 inch (or so) max quite a bit. I use Timber Wolf from Suffolk

peace, T
