I need some help from some more experience woodworkers to help me figure out what type of bandsaw this is, so I can replace some parts

It must be a rare breed .....

I've never heard of it before and Google doesn't know anything either except this:

The name plate gives no clues.

What parts do you need?
Often the clones like Central Machinery or Grizzly parts are
interchangeable.

More photos would certainly help!

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

that is a generic 14" bandsaw sold under several names, "Buffalo" was the last one I heard.
if you need parts, please describe the parts you need as well as photos.
and photos of the belt and pulley system - to make sure it has not been
converted to cut metal vs wood.
google: "14" Motorized Wood Cutting Bandsaw" which is the description
I have seen on the other saws of this nature.

and welcome to the forum !!

That Mark1 trademark was registered in 1988 and went inactive in 1994. The company was founded in 1959 and is no longer active.

I got a note from Zach:

"I need a new belt to go on the top wheel is the blade can stay in place"

Zach - we still need photos so we can help you with specific problems you are having.
what I gather from your reply above, is that you need the rubber band (called "tire")
that goes on the wheel that the cutting blade goes on ?
they are fairly common replacements and available at many places.
they are usually purchased in pairs, for both wheels at the same time.
and there are videos on YouTube on how to change the wheel tires and tune the saw
to cut straight and steady.
please try take some photos.
