Sorry, No manual. I cannot find anything on this bandsaw. Some people say it was sold at Harbor freight, but not sure. Do you have one these bandsaws? If you do what size blade to you use. Thanks
I've found a bit of information on the Ram Machinery band saw. You have the 14" "import" from Taiwan. For the whole story and more manuals than you can read, go to the articles section of this forum and look for the 14" "import" bandsaw comparison. All of the manuals there are applicable to your saw. The more you read, the more you'll find that they are identical. Give me a few days and I'll try to get the old "AW" manual digitized and uploaded.
Ok, you don't have a riser. Other than that, you'll find that blades give or take an inch or so for each size of machine. You will probably need 93 1/2" but confirm this with your vendor before purchasing. I have a 6" riser on mine that will give me 12" depth of cut with 13 1/2" from the throat to the blade and I'll use 105".
Make sure that your upper wheel shaft hinge and upper wheel sliding bracket are both in good shape. Look for any hairline cracks etc. It may be prudent to replace them and put in a new spring as well. I replaced all the bearings, upper wheel controls, new neoprene tires and two new blades on mine plus the $25- purchase price and I've got about $100 into mine by now.

Bob has helped me put mine into fully operating condition. He might be able to help with yours.
Can we have a few pictures of your saw please and could you also take a closeup of the logo. We're bound to run into more RAM stuff over the years. Important parts are the belt pullies, neck of the frame and the blade support section near the table. I may need a few additional pictures as we go along.
