Its only a cheapo Chinese 5" bandsaw

But so far it's cost my 5.75.

 

It was used and abused at work for 5 years.

 

The guys couldn't get the blades to stay on anymore more so they scrapped it and bought a new bigger one.

 

I brought it home because the saw head is identical to the one I brought home from work 5 years ago when the vise broke. I've been using it as a vertical saw since.

 

Turns out the bearings on the gearbox output shaft were shot.

 

Picked up a pair at PA and slid them in earlier this eve.

 

I tried it out and got the blade running true on the wheels, now need to fix all the attempted adjustments over the years.

Good deal on the saw.

 

My workplace would have destroyed it and put it in the scrap trailer so no one would ask for it.

Good find and you can't beat the price.

 

Many years ago I purchased an old craftsman bandsaw used it until the blade kept falling of. Then I purchased a chop saw and slid the bandsaw under the bench. Fast forward and now I'm sick of dealing with the grit and dust from the chop saw, especially in the winter when the shop is closed up. Last fall I drug out the bandsaw again, made the necessary repairs and all is good again. About the only time I use the chop saw anymore is on stainless or alloy metals and only outdoors. The bandsaw is sure quiet and clean. With the cost of abrasive wheels going through the roof using the bandsaw is also economical.
