I have an older (?) Craftsman 2-spd 14in bandsaw.

The unit I have looks just like this, other then the size. Same tilt, same style really all the way around:

I am trying to find info on the 14in (parts breakdowns, blade size, etc), but all I can find is the new round style, or really old units.

Anyone know anything about it?

I have one of those, but have never seen a 14”.
That doesn’t mean there wasn’t one.

Please post a pic of your saw.

I have seen hundreds of the 12 inch models like the one you pictured over the years, but never one in that style that was 14 inch.

I’m very curious!

Oddly, my dad and I have identical saws, both 14in. So I at least believe its not a one-off!! :)

Its a great saw, but mine was a abused a little by its former jockey (resawing barn timbers) so I want to go through and tear down and clean up /rebuild it.

Just locate the model number of your saw, and do a google search. It’s not that complicated…

I had a 12” and the lower wheel bearing went bad, now I liked the tilting frame instead of the table, but it was a junk saw as far as redoing bearings, and the motor is specialized to it an not available. So I sold it. Here is a fun video about that saw.
