    Price of an older Delta 28-280 Bandsaw ?

    I have found an older Delta 28-280 bandsaw with the enclosed bottom. The owner says it is in good shape. Wonder how much it would be worth ????

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    The 28-206 took its place and I believe that model is also discontinued. At any rate the 28-206 was going for about $475 on Amazon 4-5 years ago but optimistically retailed for around $1000 (not anywhere near worth that IMHO). If it is the 1HP version and is in good working condition, I would probably pay $200-$300 based on my area and an inspection of the machine. You could scout Craig's list or other sources for your area for 1HP, 14" cast iron saws; Jet, Powermatic, Delta and Grizzly for example Bear in mind that the Grizzly G0555X that people seem to love is $795 brand new. It is a step up from the Deltas of that era with refined guides, 1-1/2HP and other things that we now expect in a mid-level home-shop CI saw.

    Here's a review that may help:

    I had one for about fifteen years. I believe mine had casting date of 1963 on the back of the harp. I sold it last year for $250.00 on craigslist. Sold very fast thinking should of asked more. Was great saw and looking at the new ones at the time I bought it. They (Delta) didn't really change much. Hope it helps.
