    I have its twin in my wood shop. I bought it from Busy Bee about twenty years ago. It cuts wood, aluminum and brass, all at the same blade speed, using"wood" blades. It works a treat, has very slight drift and has served me well. With a 6" riser block it resaws quite well, but the original motor had no thermal overload and lost a battle while resawing red cedar. I intend to fit a DC motor to it and then it should cut steel, (with the right blade.)

    reliant band saw

    look's just like mine but so do several others. i purchased
    mine approx. 10 years ago and use it for either metal or
    wood. it also has 4 speed pulley which was the main
    reason so i could cut metal or wood.
    purchase price about 180.00 new
    thanks ken

    It's a 14" Rexon,made in Taiwan,good for wood,aluminum,but not steel. $150 is what it's worth,at auction with the right idiot it will bring $500 or more.

    Looks like a "clone" of the Delta 14 incher. I bought one several years
    ago and made a 6" riser for it and some new parts for the guides.
    Works fine I paid 300 and it only has two steps on the pulleys so it
    won't go slow enough for ferrous materials. Sure it took a little labor
    but when finished it's equal to the 800 Delta.

    generic Taiwanese or Chinese 14 inch bandsaw, to be avoided at all costs unless you are some kind of masochist.

    Looks made in China to me. Does it have a gear box? If it does not, you will be able to cut AL but not steel. Gary P. Hansen

    started a topic can you ID this wood/metal bandsaw?

    can you ID this wood/metal bandsaw?

    I'm thinking of taking a look at this, but have no idea if its an older quality machine or offshore junk - if any of you guys can ID it, it might save me a trip . The owner hasn't a clue , thinks its a Cooper & Horton who was a local machinery dealer....Cooper & Horton is gone but for some reason I'm thinking they sold decent stuff....




    thanks for any and all help
