I've got a chance to buy on of these used. It has a hugh table (24"?) anyone
familiar with it. Is it worth owning or a world of hurt? It's a 12" with 1
hp. Probably 5-10 years old. I'm not sure of the model number it's 29xxx
don't remember what the last three digits were. Seven something I think.
Almost anything is worth buying at the right price!
What is yor intended use?
I have a Craftsman 12" bandsaw, the one with an aluminum frame. Works great
for what I need. Will it re-saw 6" oak? No way!
if it's the cheezy one with the ribbed aluminum table it's too
lightweight to do any real work on. the frame warps if you look at it
funny and the tilt mechanism has so much flex in it that depending
what you are cutting and the feed rate used you're going to get
different angles. I know a guy who had one. every time I talked to him
about it he would end up telling me how much he regretted getting rid
of his 18" Walker Turner.

I recently saw part of a cable TV show touring the National Hardware
show. They showed a tilt head bandsaw from one of the well known tool
makers (not Sears but I do not remember who). It was touted as novel.
Wonder if it solves the problems with the Sears?
