Gary, you will save yourself a lot of grief if you watch the set up video by Alex from Carter Bandsaw Products.

Congratulations!

I've been cruising the Craig's List here for a 14" bandsaw for over 6 months now. So far, if the price was great, I've gotten as close as "You're the second caller. The first is on his way to look at it now. If he doesn't take it, I'll call you back..." Mostly here, I've seen them listed the other way, where the owner has no clue how much they're worth and wants "more" than the same make/model goes for new... I figure if I "keep" looking, my odds have got to get better at that.

I even went to 2 auctions, but they went for over my price range.

I also have my name/number at the local HF store with their Asst. Manager. They have an older model there as their display (with 1HP motor) that hasn't been made/sold by HF in about a year plus. ...For whenever they update their floor display to a current model, to call me to buy that one. ...But the Manager will not budge on it.
