Hi neighbor! (well at least the same side of the mountains)

I’m with the general consensus on the Delta. I picked up a 14” Delta 28-203 for $150 at an auction a couple months ago. Was missing half of the top guide ($50 on Amazon) and probably needs new tires, but other than that is a champ.

One nice thing about the Delta is every now and again you stumble on a riser block for sale for $100 and suddenly you have a really nice saw with great resaw capabilities. I have read on a couple other forums, with a little modification, the Riser Block from Grizzly’s 14” saw will work.

If you are not daunted by a “project” when it comes to used equipment, keep your eyes on this website. Search “Browse Auctions within Area” (right hand side) click on the State of Washington, then click on Industrial Equipment (left hand side).

Its a fun site to check on every week.

Don’t know how long this link will last, I picked this slightly bigger bandsaw 2 weeks ago for $400.
