New - to me - bandsaw

Picked this up at a garage sale - $20. Found one for sale is Australia, don't think I can get there.

Can anyone identify the brand and/or provide some additional information on this saw.

Works well after a good cleaning, the blade is very sharp and provides a nice cut. Just want some more information.

Looks an awful lot like the old Craftsman's

Many thanks....are they, or were they, associated with Craftsman? Any idea where I might locate a manual for this machine. Works fine, but I would like to read up some and perhaps get a couple of extra blades.

Again, thank you.

well i tried to find out if they are associated, it looks like your bandsaw was made in taiwan, and so was the craftsman model , they are virtually identical, i would assume they are/were associated with each other. the craftsmans model number is 113 244513

does the motor on your saw have a part number?

I took a look at the motor, and I can see where the information was located at one time. It is now a patch of old stiff sitcky stuff covered with sawdust, so no number available.

I will go to the Sears website and see if I can still download a manual. Edit - found the manual.

Thank you for spending your time on this, and for the information, I appreciate your assistance.
