Default need a manual

Hey all, Today I was given a Foley Belsaw model 435 20" jig/scroll saw, Not sure on what kind of maintenance it needs there is a screw near the bottom that says Oil Level Am i ment to take that screw out and tip oil in it and if so what kind? never used or owned one of these and the guy i got it from had no clue.

So hoping to find a manual or something ive searched online but cant seem to find anything the company apparently doesnt even sell them anymore their website is completely unrelated to this tool.

Thanks in advance.

Paul,

The guys at OWWM say that your saw is based on Sprunger design.

OWWM - Photo Index - Foley-Belsaw Co. - 435 Ser. #No 577

Attached is a sprunger manual which talks about checking the oil level in the drive box.

Maybe it will help. OWWM has helped me find manuals back to the '30's in the past, someone may find the manual for your saw there someday.

Good luck!

The oil is 30w and the level should be where you can touch it with your finger. Foley Belsaw went out of business in the late 80s or early 90s. I have a manual for this saw if you're still interesterd. I've had mine since 87. Except for getting parts, its a good saw. It took me nearly 10 years to find someone with the machine-shop setup to make me a new blade chuck. It takes 5 inch blades with plain ends.
