Built this from downloaded plans. I did a search on “vintage bandsaws” and chose images. I found that the plans were complete and had no missing req’d data. The plans didn’t have a mechanisim to tilt the upper wheel, so I came up with a simple method for that function. The plans are possibly from a 1940 popular mechanics type magazine. Had to scrounge a motor from a dryer, but it works well. Added the saw dust deflector in place of the lower blade guide. This saw is absolutely amazing and I am using almost daily. This is the first substantial piece of shop equipment I have made.
