Thread: Help me determine value of bandsaw please.

    Help me determine value of bandsaw please.

    Hey Guys,

    I've upgraded bandsaws this year and am finally ready to get rid of my old one. I have no idea what it is worth. I would love some thoughts on what you guys think it is worth. I don't want to find out what it is worth AFTER I sell it too cheap.

    It is an older model JET bandsaw, Wood & Metal cutting, model JBS-14MW, enclosed base unit, great condition. The motor is 1 h.p. single phase, 115/230 VAC. The tires are farely new. I will be including 6 blades, most of which are Timberwolf brand; they range is size from 1/8" - 5/8".

    I was going to post it on my local Craigslist.

    Thanks

    another questin that you shouldask yourself is you mentioned you upgraded to another if you got big one for resawing and your thinking that you could do the small work on it too then you should look at your small one seriously.. aolt folks have sold there little saw got the big saw and then wished they had there old little saw back for the little stuff

    Good point! I've never regretted holding onto the old TaiChi 14" after I got the Laguna 16. I keep a 3/16" or 1/4" blade on it for small stuff, and use the 16" for resawing, and larger jobs. Both have their rightful place in my shop.

    Yep...
    Got 3 now, a guy can never have too many BS! The big one for resaw, the middle one for regular stuff and the little 10" one for small scroll work It sure is nice not having to swap blades and take the time to set up for each blade change.

    Well then I guess I need another bandsaw, I have Big Blue for resaw and the Phoenix for everything else

    I too would vote for you keeping this saw and leaving a scrolling blade on it, I VERY much doubt you will ever replace it for the $350 to $450 you would get for it.

    What did you upgrade to?

    I'll double ditto the good tip. Changing blades can be a hassle. If you have the room and don't really need the money, keep it.
