    Really need some help here

    I really need a bandsaw so as to cut some circles for that spinny thing that I bought earlier this year. Please take a look as he will only hold for me tomorrow. Many inquires I guess and seems like he has it priced reasonably.
    Not much information on the ad, but it is a 14", no extra blades, has been laid on it side to transfer to storage (where it is now). Going to try to make it in the morning if anything from you folks sounds positive. He bought it new less than 2 years ago (Nov). 3/4 HP motor. About all that I know.
    Thanks for any help that you all can give
    Chuck

    What did you want us to look at?

    I assume there is a bandsaw add you want us to look at, but I don't see a link.

    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Going to move this out of Old Iron since it isn't and for better exposure.

    Chuck:
    I found the add. Looks like the table is a bit rusty but otherwise it all appeared to be there (in the picture). I don't think it is too bad of a deal, a new one is $349. If it runs and all the moving parts move like they should, I would go for it.

    For others looking this should be the link: http://columbus.craigslist.org/tls/403927634.html

    Chuck,

    I don't know. I would go into that with my eyes open. $250's a good price for a 14" bandsaw. But here's a price for a brand new one: http://www.grizzly.com/products/G0580

    Tough call. If you know a lot about bandsaws, you might be able to make an educated judgement about its condition when you see it. On the other hand...

    Let us know how it turns out...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    FWIW the Ridgid bandsaws don't have that good of a reputation...

    Vibration issues and out of balance wheels...

    Just passing on what I've heard through various message boards including Ridgid's own board

    Good luck
