Today Tasha and I wandered down to Littleton to pick up my band saw from Sears. The box fit perfectly in the back of my CR-V but it took two guys the size of my cousin John to lift it in there (a 227 lb box will do that). Once we got it home, Tasha and I got it moved from the CR-V into the garage and Tasha spied the reason why it was discounted so far… it was a closeout item and was marked used. It was in the original factory box even!
I opened the box and this thing wasn’t very used… it looks as if it was a floor model: the ruler and guide were not scratched or dirty at all. It seems that the band saw itself was assembled, but I won’t know for sure until I unpack it and set it up. Providing everything works, I am really pleased with this purchase. I will try putting it together tomorrow after Church and brunch! Fun!
