Anyone know anything about this particular saw? I called Delta and
looked through the owwm website but haven't had much luck. When I
called I gave the lady the serial number (1524032) and she said it was
mfd. in August of 1971, but she didn't have any other information. She
also said "the x is actually a 4", meaning she thought I read it wrong.
I've looked - it's definitely an x. She punched in the serial number
and it came up that the machine was a 28-345, and not the 28-3X5 marked
on the plate. Who knows.
I have an opportunity to bid on one at an upcoming auction and I was
hoping to find out what it's "worth". The new Delta 20"ers go for
around $2k. I'm in the market for a good bandsaw and if I can get this
one cheap, I'll tweak it out with new guides etc...
