This tool requires certification for use.


Capacity 16" from the blade to the column
Blade Size 120" blade. Width up to 1". Each width requires a set of hardened steel guides and a holder. See below for the guides we have.
Blade Speed approximately 45 to 1600 FPM, continuously variable.
Power 240V, 3 phase
Weight 1500-2000 pounds
Mfg. Date 1955

Operating Notes

To turn on the saw: 1) Make sure it is plugged in. This saw shares an outlet with the Johnson bandsaw. The plug is a twist-lock. Turn the plug counter-clockwise to remove from the outlet. 2) The big cutoff switch on the left of the machine needs to be in the 'on' position. 3) Turn the key on the front to the right. 4) Push the round black button on the front of the machine.

Adjust the height of the blade guide to be just above the workpiece. On the back of the saw above the blade are two knobs. The lower knob locks the guide in place. The upper knob adjusts the height of the guide.

Change speed range by moving the lever up and to the other side. Only do this when the motor is running and when the variable speed setting is at its lowest speed.

Change the variable speed setting only when the motor is running.

The angle of the table can be changed after loosening the knob on the right side of the machine and below the table. Then tilt the table by hand. You may have to adjust the height of the lower blade guide if you tilt the table far from horizontal.




Blade welder is missing the grinder motor. The welder has not been tested. The 20 amp plug/outlet may not be sufficient.

Make two replacement jaw inserts for the blade welder. These may have originally been made of bronze. They rest on pins just above the blade clamp cam. Something similar to what is in this photo. http://smg.photobucket.com/user/horteniv/media/Do%20All%20V-36/611.jpg.html

Add a miter jig which mounts to the right side of the table. A round linear bearing would allow the jig to be tilted down out of the way when not in use.


Description Frequency Lubricant Instructions History
Gear Box The manual for model 16-2 (our saw) says to use SAE 10 motor oil. The manual for the 1612 (a slightly newer model) says SAE 20. DoAll support says use SAE 20 motor oil, which is difficult to find. ISO 68 waylube is equivalent to SAE 20 and available from Zengers in Melrose Park. The drain plug is at the bottom of the gear box. Remove pipe cap and fill to the top of the pipe. Takes about 1 quart. Changed 10/7/14 with ISO 68. Only about 2 cups of oil were drained, but no sign of a leak.
Reeves drive shaft (oil cup) 1612: SAE 10

Oct. 15, 2014 Replaced thrust bearings and bearing caps for the 1/16-1/2" upper and lower guides. With the blade centered on the wheel, there is a gap of about 1/8 between the cap and the back edge of the blade. With medium heavy hand feed, the blade doesn't touch the cap and cause the bearing to turn. This may be OK, as there would be significantly more pressure from the workpiece when using the machine's mechanical feed.

Tried the 5/8-1" guides. appears that there will also be a gap between the blade and thrust bearing cap when using a 3/4" blade with the blade centered on the wheel. For the upper guide, we need 2 longer cap screws (1/4-20?) to hold the 3/4" hardened guides to the guide block and 2 shorter screws (shoulder?) to hold the guide block to the guide post. For the lower guide, 2 cap screws. not sure about the screw that holds the lower guide block in place.


Item Description Supplier Cost
Guide thrust bearing 626ZZ 6x19x6mm (2 required)
Guide Blocks Upper and lower insert guide blocks for 1/16-1/2" width blades ('precision' style); upper and lower insert guide blocks ('high speed' style) for 5/8" to 1" width blades.
Inserts Sets of 4 hardened steel inserts for 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4".
Adapter We have the upper and lower Adapters for 1/16 to 1/2" guide blocks.
