Purchased this about 30 years ago. A friend of mine called and said his neighbor who built boats had a big bandsaw to sell. I asked him how big and he didn't know but said it was big. I went over and looked and sure enough, it was an 18 inch saw. Paid $150.00 and took it home. Finally got around after I retired to restore it. All new bearings and neoprene tires put heavy duty wheels on it as it is quite heavy. Great saw. This one has a cast aluminum "C" frame. Most of them had a Steel "C" frame.
