I have an OLD

Posted by Charlie Jones on Jan 15, 2005

Rockwell 14 incher, combination metal/wood band saw. Made in 1963!!! and still running on the original motor.

Of course my Delta Unisaw was built in 1946 so the band saw ain't the oldest thing in the shop- I am


The Craftsman bandsaws are pretty good IF you can find an old one. My 12 incher is close to 30 now and it's a good saw. Stay away from the corrugated table tops like the plague- those things are one of the WORST ideas ever foisted on woodworkers.
