Default ram bandsaw- tunnions brok3

Have a friend broke his Ram band saw tunnions. Where to get replacements or manual? I could not find the "articles" section in this site.

Welcome to the forum, Marge.

Ram 14" Band saw

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Welcome Marge, assuming these are pot metal and less than repairable tell your friend to try a local machine shop to have steel units made or adapt a new unit by downloading manuals with diagrams (to see which is closest ) or to weigh the cost vs time and just buy a new one - from what I read RAM dates to 85. For a quality machine this is nothing, for Harbor Freight of that period it is ancient.

Is it a 14 inch saw? If it is, I'll bet it is a Delta knock-off. In that case you may be able to just get Delta or aftermarket Delta parts. They copied everything including the good Delta parts and the crappy pot metal trunnions. Compare them to another saw at a dealer's store.
