Small Skil Bandsaw
Hi, I'm new here, but have read through a few of the threads.
My problem is that I got this baby bandsaw for free, the guy said it worked, but you have to start the wheel turning when you flip the switch, but it keeps going after that. I didn't get around to tinkering with it for most of the fall and winter, and tried it the other day and after opening the cabinet part that covers the blade and wheels, I flipped the switch and gave it a spin. It wanted to run, but the fuse, or whatever does this, shut it off and I had to push a reset button just at the top of the box. Several tries simply repeated the action.
Any clue how to fix it? I can't afford a "real" bandsaw just now, and would like to have this one work for little projects..
