I also think bandsaws your looking at a great find. Already said bandsaws not complicated but would recommend checking local library for two great books “Bandsaw Handbook,” by Mark Duginske or “The Bandsaw book,” by Lonnie Bird. If had to buy one book would recommend “The bandsaw Handbook.”

While not sure of model number, when you find out think can find parts manual on-line. Lot depends on what is wrong with those bandsaws. Replacing tires, and thrust bearing or wheel bearings not a big deal.

You might just get by with downloading Louis Iturra catalog.

There is a Iturra catalog on line from 2010
