I own an old PACKARD 14 inch saw purchased many years ago from Sante
This is a very sturdy machine, however, I recently discovered that one
of the upper blade guide holders had cracked making it impossible to
adjust one side of the blade guides. The parts look a lot like the
older Delta 14 inch band saws.
Got any ideas where I can locate a replacement part for this band saw?
Worth a look to see how close the resemblance is.
Some of the early clones were _remarkably_ close. Seems that Delta parts
had been used to make the molds (making things a touch smaller because of
metal shrinkage), which means yours might work with Delta parts, a file and
I'd find a friend with the Delta, unscrew and try.
What country's it made in? Most of the import 14" bandsaws are identical in
most regards. Very close copies of Delta, but you'd fine more in common with
other no-name imports.
Grizzly, Jet, Sears, Ridgid, Harbor-Freight, Reliant, etc.
