Default Shopcraft Band Saw

Hey I found a 14" Shopcraft Bandsaw on CL but it needs a belt. Are these saws worth anything and are belts/blades very easy to get?

Based on the little bit of research I did, I think it takes a round belt, which looks like is often sold at custom lengths.(?)

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Here is the photo off CL - the saw is about 45 mins away so I haven't gone to look at it.

Just looks like some cheap generic saw from the 80s/90s

I wouldn't bother with it.
Find something old and American made, thats not full of plastic...

It would be hard to go wrong with Delta, Walker Turner, or any of the other old quality names.


Somebody offered me this saw the other day, it's just a matter of deciding if I have the room for it...

As a matter of fact, somebody just listed this in the classifieds.

If it's not too far, it's worth considering.
It's far better than the one your looking at on craigslist.
