After doing a couple of odd jobs around my buddies house, I was just “paid” in tools yesterday. (Honestly, I love it when I get tools like this!) My buddy feels he got the better deal because he got two rather space grabbing tools out of his storage and pushed them off on me.
First off, I got a mid ‘80s (I’m guess) Craftsman Radial Arm saw. It’s easy enough. I just need to rebuild the work top and reinforce the homemade base it’s on and it will work fine.
The jewel, though, may be the band saw that he gave me. It is a 14” KFF (VBS-14) cast iron saw. I’ve never heard of the KFF brand before, but it surely does seem to be built like a rock. Regardless of how it compares to some pro models, I’m happy to have it seeing as it will be an upgrade to the cast aluminum Crapsman one I have now.
So, does anyone have any thoughts, opinions, or advice on the KFF brand or this saw in particular? Further, does anyone have any idea where I might be able to get an owner’s manual?
