Comments:
Bought this machine from a man closing his business. They were still using this band saw, but it wasn’t maintained well. He couldn’t tell me where he got it and I had no idea how rare these can be.

I am in the process of restoring it, some parts aren’t original like the motor and the wheels. It only came with the lower wheel guard and it was damaged and altered. I just acquired the upper and lower wheel guards that are specific to this model. I fabricated the belt guard by hand, hammer and home made plywood mold. I didn’t have a picture of the original belt guard so it’s ... one of a kind. This is my first restoration project and I am close to finishing.
