    Well, it's new to me

    I've been wanting to upgrade my bandsaw for a while, and had let a couple of good buys get past me for one reason or another. I had pretty well resigned myself to buying a new one when i came across another used deal I thought was good. Picked it up last Friday (no easy feat since it was 200 miles away, given the weather and highway problems I ran into). Anyway, it's in the shop now and I'm really happy with it at this point. It's a Mini Max MM16 with some extra's and i got it for about 1/2 what a new one would have cost. This one is a 2005 model, but well cared for and ready to go.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    For starters, I'd love to have a work shop big enough to put that size of saw in! Nice one.

    There may be a larger workshop in your future, Paul. Isn't it your wife who wants to move, and you are dragging your feet? Sounds like a good trade off to me.
