Greetings all. I'm just going to pick up an old bandsaw for a light tune
up and to put into service in my shop. Is there any reference out there that
I can go to look up owners manuals, parts numbers, etc. ? Thanks in advance.
If you go to sears.com and plug the model number into their parts
search you should get a list of what they have available, generally
with an illustrated parts breakdown. May be a lot or a little
depending on the age and model.
since sears is a reseller, not a manufacturer, and they switch
manufacturers a heck of a lot, and they've been doing this for a long
time, that bandsaw could be anything from a light-industrial machine
like mine (made by parks) to a disposable no-name chinese POS with a
20 hour service life (not kidding).
somewhere on the web is a reference list that you can plug your model
number into to get the name of the manufacturer. sometimes if sears
doesn't have manuals and parts lists the manufacturer will.
Well, I am not a big Sears fan for stationary tools, but, I also don't
hate them so I won't talk smake or belittle them.
My 12' Craftsman bandsaw is over 20 years old and the one they sell
today is almost identical. I could use the manual for the one today to
do almost anything on my old one. I got a copy of my manual from Sears
online for free. It should be noted that the saw still runs fine and I
only replaced it because I needed more power. If anyone is in the
Chicago area, mine is for sale for $125.00.
