    Mini-Max S45 Bandsaw what's it worth??

    I just found about a Mini-max S45 18" bandsaw for sale. He says is was bought about 8 years ago in 2000. He won't give me a price and wants me to make an offer. What is it worth??

    Thanks
    Keith

    I lost a post on this to the cyber-thieves. Oh, well.
    The MM site shows the current one at about $2,300.00.
    I would offer $800.00 and let him dicker up to no more than $1,100.00.
    Providing it is in good condition and wasn't overly used.

    I hate those situations. The seller sets the asking price!!!
    Offer a buck.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I agree with Art, the sellor should set a price. Even in auctions to day they set.

    Offer him a fair price, MSRP /3; should be fair.

    Let us know what happens
