Craftsman 17" Bandsaw
About 4 weeks ago, i sent an e-mail on a CL ad for a 20" Craftsman Industrial drill press about 2 hours from me. Never heard back, ended up buying a different one (fair deal on a 17" Delta). The guy just called me a few minutes ago, had been out of town for a few family emergencies and a funeral--he's 85 so i can forgive that. In his favor is that he is a retired machinist and woodworking was a hobby--they tend to be more fastidious than most tool owners/users. Anyway, he mentioned a need to downsize, and was talking about a few tools in his way.
Catching my attention was a mention of a 17" Craftsman bandsaw--he's thinking from the mid-90's, and like the drill press claims very little use. Also mentioned it was a steel frame. He's going to call me tomorrow night with a model number, in the meantime when i googled Craftsman 17" bandsaw (or band saw), nothing came up for 17", i pretty much only saw (pun intended) 14" and 10". I know that we can't tell more without the model number, but i'm wondering if a mid-90's C-Man 17" bandsaw rings a bell with anyone--since i am too impatient to wait a day!!
