I bought an old band saw off a relative unseen, he said it worked and wanted $30 for it.
So it turns out to be a great Craftsman (King/seeley) band saw. Model #24280 with what appears to be an original stand.

Anyway, it cleaned up great! and it has everything but the fence. I have the rails the fence glides on, just not the fence.

Any ideas on where to find an original replacement?

I’ll probably make one out of wood for now, but i’d like to have a replacement steel one.

Try E bay for the part directly or try Google for antique machine tool parts. You’ll be surprized at what people have squirred away( see American Pickers to get an idea).
Good luck
