Band Saw for the Shop

Ridgid 14 Inch

Hey guys. Just wanted to share this deal I got. Found this beauty on Facebook for $35 with no clue if it actually ran. I’ve cleaned it up a little bit, still need to sand down the table to get the surface rust off, and clean and paint the base it’s sitting on. Now for the cool part…..the only wrong with it was the start capacitor on the motor. $7 dollars and a little time, and it runs beautifully. It’s quite, smooth, and the tracking and tension adjustment all works perfectly. All that’s left is that final clean up and a couple new blades.

Ok, I was super excited about this find and had to share it. I hope everyone is having a great weekend, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.
