Topic tags/keywords: band saw sterling packard wbs-14

I could use a little advice here. I found a Sterling Packard bandsaw WBS-14 on Craigslist for a killer price. The saw is in pristine condition and like new. Problem is that I cannot find any information on the manufacturer. Does anyone know anything about this company or machine?

Any information would be appreciated

Thanks
A

Seller may be taking the brand name off the motor.

“WBS-14” stands for “woodcutting band saw 14 inch”
and is a model name used by Jet and other importers.

That’s what I figured. The strange thing is that this company was based out of Glendale, CA. Its a Packard Precision band saw by Sterling Packard. It on a plate on the casing. I just can’t find anything about them online.
