I have one. That is a good saw. I sure as heck would not sell mine for that so you must have thief genes in your heredity. I do have one advantage---mine looks brand new.

Well after putting a new "elcheapo" blade on I was able to get this done today.
Second one is of the bottom of the drawer for the hall tree. Looks like a dragon to me
How ever I was not able to get a handle on the shelf brackets I was posed to make.They are 18" X 18" and I just can't get the shape to look right

I had one just like it and I think it's more like late 70s or early 80s but has good bones. I hot-rodded mine with new tires, ceramic guides, a 1.5hp Leeson motor, MDF panels glued to the insides of the base for vibration dampening, a new spring, link belt, and probably several other things I'm forgetting. Got it working great, then a week or so later a friend offered me a deal on a 17" Grizzly I couldn't pass up so I ended up selling it.
They seem like they be a good pair. The little guy for smaller scroll blades and the 17" griz for resaw blades. I mean bandsaws are like handplanes, you can never have to many
I gotta say Chuck for $50 you plumb stole that saw , I'd probably feel bad and have to give the guy another $25 or so. I wish we saw deals like that around here ... or maybe not.. the garage is kinda full as it is
