There is a Wilton horizontal band saw for sale locally that I'm interested in. Seller is asking $225. It's a model 3130T with a 5 x 8" capacity. Does anyone have any experience with these - good or bad?

I had an older Wilton 7 x 12 band saw for over twenty years. Cut a lot of material on that saw before I sold it.
I wonder if it is one of the newer one made in Asia?
I have a Grizzly 4 x 6 bandsaw that took the place of the Wilton I had. Still going strong for the cutting I do today. Even modified the saw to cut 7" round, too.

I bought a used Wilton 3061 about three years ago. It must be 50years old. Just replaced the blade, It uses a 52 1/2 " So it must be a 3x5. Cuts beautifully and squared. Too bad, some one bought the one that you looked at. There's no way that I'm selling mine.
