Default Buffalo 10 inch band saw

I am in the market for a small bench top band saw. I found a 10 inch Buffalo 3 wheel band saw with a stand for $25. I will mainly use this saw for pen blanks and wine stopper blanks. I don't know anything about the buffalo brand, but for $25 should I get it? Any thoughts, good or bad? I don't have room for anything bigger. Thanks

For that price, I would buy it whether I needed it or not. It's bound to be good for something.

The three wheelers are a little fiddly, but you can tune them to run, and do well with sharp blades.

And for $25? Get it. Haven't lost much if it turns out bad. Just ask the guy to let you run it before you buy.
