  • How to Restore a Band Saw

    That’s an amazing saw!! Great story!! Thanks for sharing!! Keep rescuing that old iron!!

    Aurther,Thanks for leaving such an insightful post! I couldn’t have said it better myself! You would be surprised to know that thensaw didn’t run in thrncondition purchased. Thisnsaw was used exclusively for metal work (it has back gears) and the gearbox was frozen solid as well as all of the bearings.She’s a real champ now though!! Thanks again for your comments!!

    Hey, thanks for chiming In !! I got new tires for mine on amazon. There were a ton of similar deals on eBay as well.

    A man after my own heart

    Hey mike, thanks for reaching out! These old machines are build as a band Saw should be, without any cost cutting, cheap parts, or engineered failure points :) That said, their value is subjective. If you needed a Cadillac bandsaw for your business, paying 600-2000 bucks for a fully restored golden age bandsaw would be money well spent. If you were a home gamer who wanted a primo 12-14” delta bandsaw for your shop that was in fair condition and running, I’d say 3-500 bucks is a fair price. If you’re me looking for a project, I’d pay between 150-250 for a machine like mine and be thrilled at the deal I found. My first bandsaw was a 12” craftsman plastic fantastic that I paid 50 bucks for. The going rate on that saw is 100-200 bucks. The deal are out there but patience is key.Good lu...
