I recently was given an old bandsaw from a friend of a friend (awesome!). It didn’t come with an owner’s manual. Does anyone know where to find a manual for a Rockwell Bandsaw Model 25-20C. Would love to know more how to tune it up and see a parts diagram, etc. Thanks!

I was able to find a manual for my rockwell lathe on ebay at Orark Woodworker. Not sure you can find what you want but must likely they will have it. Not sure what I paid for my manual but it was well worth the price I paid. Hope this helps

I would agree with Harshest, I have been able to download several manuals from them including one for my old Rockwell Miter Saw.

Vintage machinery is the place to look. The ebay seller Orark woodworker steals the FREE manuals from OWWM and then sells them at a profit. I would NOT purchase any manuals from them. Here is the listing for all the Delta bandsaws that are currently available at owwm.
