New Tool joining my collection

Ive been in the market for a good saw and came upon this deal from a member in one of my offroad clubs.

For those who dont know what it is, it is a horizontal Bandsaw.

Kalamazoo 610, The nice thing about this model is that most saws its size are only good for 5" or so stock to be cut in it. This has a throat big enough for 6"x10" material, which will come in handy. It is from the 80's so it is pretty old but its a beast and I didn't pay very much for it.

I can buy blades in bulk length and cut and weld my own.

Yea I have an upright also, I just dont use it very much. I would love to be able to afford the one in the backround, but I got this one cheap because Russ bought the one in the back and no longer needed the one I bought.

yea, it takes skill to cut anything that's very long straight with a vertical saw, horizontal band saws are awesome.
