A new to me bandsaw for 50$ on greigslist. I haven’t been able to find much information about it nor a manual online. It runs nicely without vibration and seems in relatively good shape overall. It’s made in Austria, so it’s European…
Anyone have any more information about it or know of a site that has the manual?

Emco may have not exported wood machines
always to English speaking countries. I have
seen manuals for the Emco Rex and Emco Star.

Your manual appears to be only available in

If it is European, it may be 220v

Too bad about the manual being in german. I should have taken that German course when I had the chance.

Although now that I look at the manual, I think I can figure out what’s going on with the pictures and google translate.

I’m just seeing this post now , 4 yrs late, but I bought the same bandsaw new back in the late 80’s . If you’re still in need of the manual , I have it in English. I’d gladly copy it and send it. Let me know.

Have your say...
