Default Ram Machinery band saw parts

I acquired a Ram Machinery14" bandsaw, model 0067. It was built in 1985, and I think that company is no longer in business.
I'm looking for the table assembly for it. Harbor freight sells a Central Machinery bandsaw ,its the carbon copy of the one I have, but I called them , they said they don't carry parts and the Central Machinery co. are very hard to deal with.
Would anyone have any idea where I coudl get a table assembly for this bandsaw??

Hi Marty and welcome. I was hoping this was a question about tires or bearings. A table could be tough to find.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

There was a model of bandsaw that was marketed by a multitude of companies. Yours is probably one of them. Like Charles said, a table is going to be a bit difficult to find. Wheels, tires, bearings, table mounts, were still available not too long ago. There is a vendor here in Kitchener,ON,CA that I was in contact with about mine.

If you are only missing the table and still have the Trunnions you can build a table.
Use Baltic birch or laminated mdf.

No, I don't have the trunnions either, I do have the mount the trunnions mount to. I guess I need the whole assembly.

Try looking into Grizzly 14 of about the same age. Alot of these kind of saws were branded under various names..

Thanks!
I just downloaded a Grizzly model g0555 ultimate 14" bandsaw manual. The trunnion & table look pretty much like the one I need!!!

As does my Trademaster. As I mentioned, this saw was branded for several manufacturers. I've attached a couple files that might be of some help. They are in PDF format, so you will need Adobe reader to look at them.

Tires are available from many sources. Ebay and Amazon have lots to choose from. I got a set from a company in Florida.. trying to find them, but I've saved them to my secret place and I forgot where it was. Rockler also sells them. Bearings should be universal, and available anywhere that bearings are sold. Should be a number on them for cross reference.

For proper setup, altho you are a long way from there, check Alex Snodgrass out. Either on youtube or at Carter Products. Excelent tutorial.
