Finally Got Me A Bandsaw


It's a real fixer-upper.

Power King Model 910 I believe.

(3) 6" dia. wheels with a 64" blade. belt drive.

Good luck.

I inherited my father's 3 wheel Delta. It's nicknamed the "blade-eater". I replaced the tires and have it so it tracks pretty well don't use it that much as I don't trust it. It scares the b'jesus out of you when a blade tracks off.

Neat little BS..... don't expect a lot out of that saw...it has some limitations, as I am sure you already know about.

If you ever want to move up....there are some incredible deals out there for some serious OWWM.

I don't current;y have ths space for anything bigger. Honestly, I don't have the space for this. My shop is a tiny 8x10 shed. I'm planning a yard sale since I have a lot of misc stuff I'll never use. I also can't see why I'll ever need 5 tablesaws(4 Craftsman King-Seeley's, and a Craftsman Emerson A Model 80 and a Model 60 I'm planning on keeping as well as 2 smaller ones I'll probably part with as well as the Emerson.)

If by limitations, you mean breaking blades, I'm hoping to overcome that by uising the Supercut "three wheeler" blades.

Today's restoration pictures.

base and arm reunited, haven't finished painting the inside as I ran out of the rust converter I use as primer on cast Iron(Rustoleum Rust converter, painted a truck frame with it 2 years ago and its say outside with no rust since then)



arm painted, still need some touchup on the stripes.


Old and new



a little wear on the drive shaft
