I just purchased a Vintage General Bandsaw Model 190 to restore.
Everything seems to turn freely etc.. it came with a huge 1/2 horse power motor
I am posting pictures before my restore starts.
I contacted GENERAL Tools and they actually had the owners manual for it
and sent it to me in a PDF file.. That was a BONUS>
I also ordered two replacement tires for it @ $39.00 each plus shipping.
It’s a 15” Band Saw and I could not find replacement belts for it except through the manufacturer.
I was thinking I’d just refurbish it and sell it because I have a decent Band Saw ”BUT”
The more I read about this saw the more I’m liking it……
This model was sold in the late 50’s early 60’s and is totally cast iron.. even the doors.. Weighs about 300 lbs..
A real Backbraker..LOL
