    Anyone need a good bandsaw?

    I hope to get to an auction tomorrow that has some woodworking tools. It also has this little bandsaw. I don't think I'll be bringing it home though. Tha ad says it's an Oliver.

    I would have to build a new shop as big as that thing looks!
    That is one of those items that will go either sky high because two different guys want it, or it will go dirt cheap because everyone will wonder what they would do with it. Scrap prices being what they are, it will bring a pretty penny just for that, I shudder at that thought for that beauty.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Crap had me going for a minute. I'm in bad need of a new one. Had to pass on some good ones a few months ago...severe lack of funds. Now when I'm chomping at the bit for old Delta or Jet...not one to be found . Our church has a complete, very complete shop; 3 lathe's, 3 table saws, 3 bandsaws including a David & Wells monster, jointers, planers, drill presses, sanders, router get the picture. I usually cut stuff there, but I can't drive yet so I'm stuck with my PoC Craftsman.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
