Hi, I am in search, along with many others it seems, for a good startrite 352 however there is a 502 for sale near me. I realise startrite bandsaws fetch a premium but I am worried about over investing. I feel a good price for this 502 is £1000 seller wants £1500, what is an acceptable investment for one of these? I am installing a dedicated 20amp feed but am tempted to get a phase converter in order to get a cheaper 3 phase model. I don’t need a saw this big a 352 would work fine, a 301 a little on the small side.
Thanks in advance
