Questions about a 16″ Makita bandsaw
I have the opportunity to purchase a Makita 16″ bandsaw for $250. I know the seller very well. Her husband purchased the saw new, maybe 6 or 7 years ago, then soon moved out of the States and never returned. She says it was used only once or twice. I have no reason not to believe her.
So, here are my concerns. How hard will it be to find replacement parts if needed? How good of a machine is this thing to begin with? Is it worth the investment?
Any input here will be helpful.
