I bought a Bandsaw nothing special old central machinery one.

Came with what he listed as 8 boxes (only got 7) 50' (Actually 100') Coil stock.

Its all Wikus, 3/4" x 0.032", new in box, the one I have here is raker set, 12 tpi

I know this is not cheap, and it new old stock... I also know they still make blades but I can't find any as coil stock.

Not sure on tooth... curves in.

Also have what he described as a blade welder, thinking its a spot welder.

Only marks are AMD 466?

Oh ya these are metal cutting blade

Blades for the HF bandsaw are 54" and can be got for about $10/blade if you wait for the right sale. 100' = 1200" /54 is about 20 blades, so $200 would be about right.

FWIW, I got my HF bandsaw about ten years ago for $200. At the price, it was worth it, but the guides are tricky and the motor underpowered for real work.
