Band Saw Brands

>Sunday afternoon I'm planning on seeing a couple of used band saws that are for sale. One is a 14" Rockwell from the 1970's that has (so I am told) seen very little use. The ask is $250. The other I don't know the make, but I got enough out of the phone call to think it is of similar vintage to the Rockwell (owner is an elderly woman, presumably a widow, so I didn't press her for info). It is also a 14". She's asking $100.

Are there any brands you can strongly recommend or strongly warn against as I take a look at this? I know the Rockwell would be considered a good choice provided it is in good shape.

Thanks -
David B.
