I just picked us a "like new" 14" Tradesman bandsaw model 8157. The saw is a taiwan import, but the quality seems good. I will be replacing my Jet 12" with this 14" because it has a 1HP motor and I want to get a riser block and resaw veneer. I couldn't pass up the saw because it came with a Craftsman RAM that qualifies for the Emmerson rebate. Total price for both saws $100 - $100 (rebate) = FREE!!!
I did some searching on the Tradesman saw and can't find any info on it. The manual that came with it shows a riser block as available. Any ideas on finding one?
