I think this company went out of business or got bought out. I recently was given the AMT-1405 and was wondering if anyone has had an AMT or even used this one before and what their opinions are. I don’t want to spend too much time trying fix it up if it is a piece of junk.

Also been having a hard time finding a manual.

AMT has been out of business for quite some time.
I have an AMT scroll saw that has been in the shop for about 20 years, and still works very well.
Asian made for sure, and I don’t know about any cross-referencing for parts for your candidate. Keep in mind that drill presses are pretty simple machines. Might just need some TLC to bring it back to life.
Does it run now?

Yes it does run. The cover over the belt and pulleys is dented so bad it can’t close which isn’t a big deal but just need to take a hammer to it or something. It would be nice to have the manual which I could not find anywhere.
