I've been in the market for a bandsaw for a while. I wanted to buy one that would last me a lifetime, thankfully I resisted the temptation to go to a box store and buy a little 9 inch bench top. I've had my eye on the 17 inch Grizzly, but haven't been able to justify $1k or more on a saw that I have been able to make due without. Finally I decided to go the used route. I waited a month or so and finally got ahold of this 14" Delta for $150, I figure it's a 1980s vintage, probably about as old as I am. Did a minor tune-up - new link belt, blade, and guide blocks (tires were recently replaced with urethane) - I'm really happy with the performance. Still need to make some sleds and come up with a fence (probably DIY, but might buy something). Some day I might get the riser block and Carter bearing guides, but for now I'll enjoy the 6" resaw capacity and ability do some of the projects I've always wanted to try.
