Okay everyone, I’m hear again trying to get some information on a tool manufacturer from the 1990’s that went by the name STAR TOOLS LLC. I know some of you have been around long enough to see companies come and go, so I’m puting my money on all of you for help.
I purchased a used band saw – Model 380S – and am trying to get information on replacement parts for it. I’ve found an old web site of theirs, but looks like it’s been deserted since the late 90’s. The information on the website shows other equipment they had, but not the bandsaw in question. I believe this saw is a “knock-off” of a Delta saw – Model 28-380 – but am unsure. Here is another post i did about this saw (couln’t post a picture on this new post for some reason). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve heard of Star Tools but don’t know anything about them. That looks very much like many other 14” Asian bandsaw imports…AMT, Reliant, Ridgid, HF, Griz, Jet, Cummins, etc. That’s not saying those saws are identical, but you may find that some parts are interchangeable. Heck of deal for $25.

It is always best if the products details as well as the manufacturers details are in in place in a visible label of every product.

That looks exactly like the old Reliant I used to own. I think sometimes they all come out of the same factory, save at the end of the line there is one guy with a spray gun filled with gray paint, one with blue….

Taiwanese unit. I don’t know what parts you need but you’re probably going to have to look to other manufacturers for fitment. Bearings and tires and such are universal.

Have your say...
