Whats the deal on the table? Is it covered in wood, or is the metal table gone? Being square to the blade is kinda important on most cuts, will it pass that test?

I’m assuming it runs… How is the rubber on the wheels?
Not a bad find at all!!!
As long as it runs, a couple of upgrades/maintenance items and you should have a bandsaw that’ll last you for life.

That table is just an added on jig to cut circles
The original table is underneath!
I have to pic it up today I paid for it through PayPal just to secure it and fend off all the others wanting to purchase it !

I don’t think you overpaid at all. Once you get it home, please take a few photos as you check it over. Unless there’s something horribly wrong, you’re probably ahead of the curve.

You stole it. I paid $250 or $300 for the same model with a fence, but without the riser block 8 – 10 years ago.

It looks like it even has an upgraded spring in the blade tensioning device. That model has a one HP motor and can run on either 110 or 220 voltage. The riser block, being a different color, probably was for a newer model band saw (white series). I’m not certain, but it might have a step pulley for 2 speeds so it can be used for metal as well as wood.

You say, you might have overpaid. Is that your way of “gloating”? You got a hell of a deal.

Price is in the eye of the beholder. If you think you overpaid you did. :):)

I think the title the OP chose was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. He knows he got a terrific bargain.

It hard to tell who you are addressing. It is me the ”:):)” means my post was “tongue-in-cheek”

I wish people would use the “Quote feature”.

I picked up the saw today
I was surprised to see it has full bearing guides and the full 6” riser block kit rolling base a homemade fence system
This thing is so clean and looks barley used
Thanks for playing guys
