King 12" Band
I made this wood working band saw into a precision metal
working/wood working band saw with the roller bearing guides on the
upper and lower blade supports.
I installed a 25 speed drive unit. The motor and 5-1 gearbox slide in and
out to line the belt with the upper pulley to obtain the 25 speeds for
cutting all types of material.
My father gave me this band saw, It is very useful to have
around. The manufacture intended it to be just for wood,but
this is now for both Metal & Wood, Thanks to the
modifications I made. This band saw was built in the 40's
when they made quality stuff. Atlas, only made this for
woodworking, shows you,what was made for wood back then
is better made than what is produced today for metal.
