Two weeks ago I was at a yard sale and noticed a band-saw for sale, but didn't act on it. After my husband and I left, he asked me if I noticed the saw (he knows that I have been looking for one for a long time). I nodded and he told me that there was a man also shopping that was interested in it and he thought he bought it. As we got into our car, my heart sank as I knew I had missed a good deal. We sat in the car watching in our rear-view mirror to see if the man bought it. He only took a small box to his car, got in and took off. He ended up not buying the saw after all. After he left, we jumped out and went back for it. I think I got a pretty good deal for just 10 bucks. Here is my first project using the saw. A large 18-1/2" Red Poppy sign that I cut and painted. I'd love to do some other painted signs this summer. This sign is available at my etsy shop linked below.
