My brother Dan can get a little bored at work, and yesterday was no exception. He sent me an email in the morning saying he visited craigslist.com and came across this band saw. It's a vintage 1953 Craftsman band saw being sold in Burnsville for $110. He sent me pics of it and said it was in FINE condition. I called the guy and sure enough, it was still for sale. I told him I'd be by after work.
It's a good thing I work in Burnsville because this guy was basically in my back yard. Upon arriving, I was shown this all-metal machine and quickly paid the man. I really don't think he knew what he was selling. The stand alone, according to my brother, could easily sell for $50-60 by itself. Lugging it into the back of my truck, it was soon home in my garage waiting for my next woodworking project.
This has nothing to do with using a Kreg Jig, I just wanted to share the joy of my new purchase. Enjoy!!
