Then my attention switched to a BS220LS band saw. Everyplace on the web I found it wanted more than Lowes regular price ($299) and they had it clearanced at $220. I thought about it for several days and finally decided to go for it when they moved it from the middle of the tool area out to the aisle (figured it wouldn't last much longer). I even got an extra 10% off the clearance price (without asking!) because it was a display model.
So now I have new tools to play with and a slightly neater shop where I cleaned up to move in the new saw. I haven't decided what to do with my ancient Rockwell/Delta 10" band saw, maybe sell it to an antique tool collector.
