    Need a bandsaw bad!!!!

    Hi Guys,
    Can anyone tell me if this bandsaw is worth it's value?
    Delta 28-206 . First one that I have found in my local area. Anyone have any idea what the value of this saw might be?
    Thanks,
    Chuck

    A quick Google got prices from $549.00 to $747.00 new. Suprisingly, Amazon was the highest.
    The Grizzly http://www.grizzly.com/products/G0555 is now on sale for $395.00.
    I've been using mine all day. It got sad when I quit.

    Thanks Frank, would this make a difference?

    Delta 28-206 Professional Band Saw w/Height Block
    Also there is a 20" that is going to sell about 35 miles from my sister's and BIL house that is 10 years old and only at 800 now with 19 hours to go. Called him and he will go p/u if I get it. Don't really need one that big, but for the price, hard to resist?
    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Is the Delta 28-206 used? If it's in good shape, I'd guess the selling price should be somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 of the new price.

    If the Delta 28-640 is within your budget, I'd say jump on it. I don't recall anyone regretting buying a big bandsaw. Also, I'd think you could pretty easily get your money back if you decided to sell it down the road.

    I guess we have to ask what you want to do with the bandsaw, if any amount of resawing is in the mix, what they heck, get the bigger unit, if you have the money and the space

    A big bandsaw, with a small 1/4" blade will cut well and do scroll work, a small bandsaw with a big blade will struggle to resaw.

    Just my two cents worth, but if the 18" saw can be had for near the same price as the 14" saw, I'd be all over the 18" saw.

    Cheers!

    Don't really know what happened!

    But I got out bid by $10 in the last second. Had BIL already to go pick it up (35 miles away) and we would go down at Christmas time to p/u. Went off at $865. Would have loved to have that saw for the price.
    Thanks for the help.

    Chuck it's OK to post the link here, at least I've been doing it without getting in trouble. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...romZR41QQfviZ1

    I'd say that is a great deal if it doesn't go up to much. Lots of resaw room with the riser too! Good luck.

    I would say that is the key, "If it doesn't go up too much". I looked at some tools on ebay a couple of years ago and the buyers seem to go into a frenzy and pay more than the tools are worth.

    I have the same Made in The USA version of that saw with a 2hp and it makes a great small saw for general purpose stuff. I think that it would be a little underpowered with 1hp if you plan on doing much large resawing to say the least. In my opinion I would not pay more than $500. When I got to that figure I would be looking for something else that is either larger or something along the same lines with more power.
