    I *might* get a free bandsaw soon

    A guy I know if giving away a Grizzly G1073 17" bandsaw.
    He says it popped the breaker last time he turned it on.
    I can fix it, without doubt, but getting it here is the problem.
    It's probably the start capacitor gone bad.

    He lives 60 miles away & I don't own a truck or van to go pick it up with.
    I am working with another guy who might be able to pick it up & deliver it here for me.

    If someone did you a favor by doing that, what would you give him?
    Does $50 sound like enough? More?

    My wife will be ecstatic when I get it, if I do. Yeah, right.
    She loves it when I drag home poor abandoned tools.

    But hey, on the bright side, that's why we have a separate 2 car garage, right?

    Never mind. Gone before it happened.

    Bummer, Herb!

    Though, maybe it's for the best. I've heard some troubled tales with that model saw.

    Well, my wife is happy I didn't drag home another project.

    She won't be happy when I drag home a brand new bandsaw though.
