Ohhhh I CAN possibly get new parts! SWEET!
I hope I can because I’m quite fond of my bandsaw. It’s held up for many, many projects with few problems and the MAIN thing is that I’m familiar with it. Familiariry has got to help in the safery factor. Right? It currently needs some new blades but I think the main problem is that I ‘now’ work on smaller items and want it to function more like it scroll saw that can take tight curves and corners but that’s not what it’s made for. For what it IS made for, it has served me well for over 1/4 of a century so it can’t be ALL that bad of a saw after all.

Here are some photos of it. It’s got saw dust on it because it has recently been used and not clean off but it shows the blade etc. I should have shop vac’ed first. lol.
