"Power magic" 87

Posted on local CL for $800, 3 phase, but still a smokin' deal IMO..

That would take up about half of my shop plus a 3rd of the driveway..
For 800 clams is there some critical flaw somewhere in it? If not that's a helluva deal..

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?

Very nice machine but too large fo my shop.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

I have one in my shop, damn nice bandsaw.

I got it for $200 from a company that was shutting down. I had to make a bronze bushing for the variable speed sheave, and rebuild the blade guides. When that saw was new it sold for right at $10,000, and that was when I started disliking Powermatic, the saw was about 10 years old when I got it, I wanted to buy the bushing and blade guides since at the time I was swamped with work, so I jacked with Powermatic, and then went to one of their dealers and couldn't get any response on the bushing and finally they said the blade guides were obsolete parts with no replacement
