Comments:
This bandsaw came out of a former forge/mill/machine shop on the west side of Buffalo, NY. I have no history/name on/of the firm that owned it, but the p.o. wanted it and four other old arn pcs gone. I paid $100 for this saw and its motor, which wound up being a boat anchor. It couldn't be repaired. Big thanks to Keith Rucker for your advice and assistance re this b'saw. My intentions are to restore it and use "as is" once space and time allow. Also big thanks to Bobby Knourek at WW Tool Works for his advice and supplies.
