NOTICE
This symbol is used to alert the user to useful information about proper
operation of the equipment, and/or a situation that may cause damage
to the machinery.
Standard Safety Instructions
1. READ THROUGH THE ENTIRE MANUAL BEFORE STARTING MACHINERY. Machinery presents serious
injury hazards to untrained users.
2. ALWAYS USE ANSI APPROVED SAFETY GLASSES WHEN OPERATING MACHINERY. Everyday eyeglasses only have impact resistant lenses—they are NOT safety glasses.
3. ALWAYS WEAR AN NIOSH APPROVED RESPIRATOR WHEN OPERATING MACHINERY THAT PRODUCES
DUST. Wood dust is a carcinogen and can cause cancer and severe respiratory illnesses.
4. ALWAYS USE HEARING PROTECTION WHEN OPERATING MACHINERY. Machinery noise can cause
permanent hearing damage.
5. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. DO NOT wear loose clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, or jewelry which may
get caught in moving parts. Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair and wear non-slip
footwear.
6. NEVER OPERATE MACHINERY WHEN TIRED, OR UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL.
Be mentally alert at all times when running machinery.
7. Only allow trained and properly supervised personnel to operate machinery. Make
sure operation instructions are safe and clearly understood.
8. KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. Keep all children and visitors a safe distance from the work
area.
9. MAKE WORKSHOP CHILD PROOF. Use padlocks, master switches, and remove start switch keys.
-6-
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
10. NEVER LEAVE WHEN MACHINE IS RUNNING. Turn power off and allow all moving parts to come to
a complete stop before leaving machine unattended.
11. DO NOT USE IN DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENTS. DO NOT use machinery in damp, wet locations, or
where any flammable or noxious fumes may exist.
13. USE A GROUNDED EXTENSION CORD RATED FOR THE MACHINE AMPERAGE. Undersized cords overheat and lose power. Replace extension cords if they become damaged. DO NOT use extension cords
for 220V machinery.
14. ALWAYS DISCONNECT FROM POWER SOURCE BEFORE SERVICING MACHINERY. Make sure switch is
in OFF position before reconnecting.
15. MAINTAIN MACHINERY WITH CARE. Keep blades sharp and clean for best and safest performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories.
16. MAKE SURE GUARDS ARE IN PLACE AND WORK CORRECTLY BEFORE USING MACHINERY.
17. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES. Make a habit of checking for keys and adjusting
wrenches before turning machinery ON.
18. CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS BEFORE USING MACHINERY. Check for binding and alignment of
parts, broken parts, part mounting, loose bolts, and any other conditions that may affect machine
operation. Repair or replace damaged parts.
19. USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. Refer to the instruction manual for recommended accessories.
The use of improper accessories may cause risk of injury.
20. DO NOT FORCE MACHINERY. Work at the speed for which the machine or accessory was designed.
21. SECURE WORKPIECE. Use clamps or a vise to hold the workpiece when practical. A secured
workpiece protects your hands and frees both hands to operate the machine.
22. DO NOT OVERREACH. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
23. MANY MACHINES WILL EJECT THE WORKPIECE TOWARD THE OPERATOR. Know and avoid conditions that cause the workpiece to "kickback."
24. ALWAYS LOCK MOBILE BASES (IF USED) BEFORE OPERATING MACHINERY.
25. Be aware that certain dust may be hazardous to the respiratory systems of people and
animals, especially fine dust. Make sure you know the hazards associated with the type of dust you
will be exposed to and always wear a respirator approved for that type of dust.

SAFETY
12. KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN AND WELL LIT. Clutter and dark shadows may cause accidents.
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
SAFETY
Additional Safety for Bandsaws
READ and understand this
entire instruction manual
before using this machine.
Serious personal injury
may occur if safety and
operational information is
not understood and followed. DO NOT risk your
safety by not reading!
Use this and other machinery with caution
and respect. Always consider safety first,
as it applies to your individual working
conditions. No list of safety guidelines can
be complete—every shop environment is
different. Failure to follow guidelines could
result in serious personal injury, damage
to equipment or poor work results.
1. BLADE CONDITION. Do not operate with a dull, cracked, or badly worn blade. Dull blades require
more effort to use and are difficult to control. Inspect blades for cracks and missing teeth before
each use, and replace if necessary.
2. HAND PLACEMENT. Never position fingers or thumbs in line with the cut. Serious personal injury
could occur.
3. GUARDS. Do not operate this bandsaw without the blade guard in place.
4. BLADE REPLACEMENT. When replacing blades, make sure the teeth face down, toward the front
of the saw and the blade is properly tensioned before operating.
5. WORKPIECE HANDLING. Never hold small workpieces with your fingers when cutting. Always support/feed the workpiece with a push stick, table support, vise, or some type of clamping fixture.
6. CUTTING TECHNIQUES. Plan your cuts carefully. DO NOT back the workpiece away from the blade
while the saw is running. If you need to back the work out, turn the bandsaw OFF and wait for
the blade to come to a complete stop. DO NOT twist or put excessive stress on the blade while
backing work away.
7. BLADE SPEED. Allow blade to reach full speed before cutting.
8. LEAVING WORK AREA. Never leave a machine running while unattended. Allow the bandsaw to
come to a complete stop before leaving unattended.
9. FEED RATE. Always feed stock evenly and smoothly. DO NOT force or twist blade while cutting,
especially when sawing tight curves.
10. MAINTENANCE/SERVICE. Do all inspections, adjustments, and maintenance with the machine
turned OFF and disconnected from the power source.
11. BLADE CONTROL. Do not attempt to stop or slow the blade with your hand or a workpiece. Allow
the blade to stop on its own.
12. EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES. If you experience difficulties performing the intended operation,
stop using the machine and contact our Technical Support Department at (570) 546-9663.

Machine Placement
Cleaning Machine
•
Floor Load: This machine distributes a
heavy load in a small footprint. Some
residential floors may require additional
bracing to support both machine, operator,
and material to be processed.
•
Working Clearances: Consider existing and
anticipated needs, size of material to be
processed through the machine, and space
for auxiliary stands, work tables or other
machinery when establishing a location for
your bandsaw. Refer to Figure 4.
Lighting: Lighting should be bright enough
to eliminate shadow and prevent eye strain.
•
Electrical: Place the machine near a
power source to avoid long runs of power
cords strung across your shop. Refer to the
Electrical section on Page 9 for information
on minimum circuit requirements.
NEVER clean with gasoline
or other petroleumbased solvents. Most have
low flash points, which
make them extremely
flammable. A risk of
explosion and burning
exists if these products
are used. Serious personal
injury may occur if this
warning is ignored!

SETUP
•
The table and other unpainted parts of your
machine type are coated with a waxy grease
that protects them from corrosion during shipment. Clean this grease off with a solvent cleaner or citrus-based degreaser. DO NOT use chlorine-based solvents such as brake parts cleaner
or acetone—if you happen to splash some onto a
painted surface, you will ruin the finish.
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
Lifting & Moving
STEP 1
Lifting and moving this bandsaw is most safely done using
a forklift. The upper frame is angled at the lifting area, so
we recommend making a lifting block, as shown in Figure
5, to balance the machine when lifting.

If using a forklift is not an option, then the machine can
be moved with a heavy-duty dolly and at least three
strong people. Heavy-duty dollies can be easily purchased
at your local hardware store or rented.
To lift and move the bandsaw with a forklift, do these
steps:
SETUP
1. Make the lifting block shown in Figure xx to ensure
that the machine remains balanced when lifted and
does not swing.

3. Either place the forks directly against the lifting
block, or place straps under the lifting block and
around the upper frame.
Note: If you are using lifting straps, you must
remove the blade and upper wheel to avoid damaging the machine. The upper wheel is easily removed
by removing the hex nut from the center and sliding
the wheel off.
Lifting with Forklift
and Straps
To lift and move the bandsaw with three strong people
and a dolly, do these steps:
1. Carefully "walk" (pivot the bandsaw in alternating
steps) off of the shipping pallet and onto the shop
floor.
2. Place the dolly under the machine and move it into
place, having two extra people steady the machine
the entire time so that it does not tip over.
Figure 6. Lifting machine with a forklift.
This is a heavy machine that cannot
be safely moved alone. Tipping this
machine onto yourself or another person will cause serious personal injury.
Use extreme caution when moving this
machine without a forklift and only
get help from strong, capable people.

Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
Mounting to Shop Floor
Although not required, we recommend that you mount
your new machine to the floor. Because this is an
optional step and floor materials may vary, floor mounting hardware is not included. Generally, you can either
bolt your machine to the floor or mount it on machine
mounts. Both options are described below. Whichever
option you choose, it will be necessary to use a precison
level to level your machine.
Bolting to Concrete Floors
Lag shield anchors with lag bolts and anchor studs
(Figure 7) are two popular methods for anchoring an
object to a concrete floor. We suggest you research the
many options and methods for mounting your machine
and choose the best that fits your specific application.
Figure 8 shows the mounting locations for this machine.
Anchor Stud
Lag Screw and Anchor
Figure 7. Typical fasteners for mounting
to concrete floors.
Anchor studs are stronger and more permanent alternatives to lag shield anchors; however, they will stick
out of the floor, which may cause a tripping hazard if
you decide to move your machine at a later point.

Dust Collection
Recommended CFM at each Dust Port:.......... 400 CFM
Connect this machine to a shop vacuum rather than a
dust collector. Most dust collectors are not designed to
capture metal shavings and doing so may lead to a fire.
If you are in doubt about the capabilities of your shop
vacuum or dust collector, refer the owner's manual before
connecting it to this machine.
Figure 19. Miter gauge holder attached
with miter gauge inserted.
This saw creates substantial amounts of fine dust
while operating. Failure to use a vacuum system can
result in respiratory illness.
ONLY connect this machine to a shop vacuum. A
wood dust collector is not designed for metal chips,
which may spark and cause a fire.

Blade Tracking
"Blade Tracking" is how and where the blade rides on the
wheels. When tracking correctly, the blade rides on the
peak of the wheel crowns. Blade tracking is primarily controlled by adjusting the upper wheel tilt, also known as
"Center Tracking."
Another way to track the blade is known as "Coplanar
Tracking." Coplanar tracking involves positioning the
wheels so they are parallel and aligned (see Wheel
Alignment on Page 42). When wheels are coplanar, vibration and heat are reduced during operation. The wheels
on the Model M1113 are factory aligned, but should be
checked to ensure optimum results.
NOTICE
Changes in the blade tension may change
the blade tracking.
To center track the blade:
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
SETUP
2. Adjust the upper/lower blade guides and support
bearings away from the blade.
3. Open the upper wheel cover.
4. Rotate the blade tension lever to adjust the blade
tension until the indicator on the blade tension scale
matches the size of blade installed (see Page 19).
5. Spin the upper wheel by hand at least three times to
see how the blade rides on the crown of the wheel.
Refer to Figure 21 for an illustration of this concept.
—If the blade rides on the peak of the upper wheel
crown, then the bandsaw is already tracked properly and no additional adjustments are needed.
Skip to Step 9.
—If the blade does not ride in the peak of the upper
wheel crown, then continue with the next step.
6. Loosen the lock nuts on the blade tracking knob
threads so the knobs will rotate for adjustments.
7. Spin the upper wheel with one hand and rotate the
blade tracking knobs evenly with the other hand to
make the blade ride on the center of the bandsaw
wheel tire.
8. When the blade consistently rides on the center of
the wheel, tighten the knob thread lock nuts.
9. Close the upper wheel cover.

Blade Tensioning
A properly tensioned blade is essential for making accurate cuts and is a prerequisite for making many bandsaw
adjustments. The blade tension is adjusted by rotating
the blade tension lever.
To tension the bandsaw blade:
1. Make sure you have performed the Test Run instructions on the previous page and you are certain that
the blade is tracking properly.
2. With the blade tension lever in the down (engaged)
position, adjust the blade tension until the indicator
on the blade tension scale (Figure 23) matches the
size of blade installed on the bandsaw.
3. Turn the bandsaw ON.
4. Release the tension one quarter of a turn at a time.
When the bandsaw blade starts to flutter, stop
decreasing the tension.
5. Now, slowly increase the tension until the blade
stops fluttering, then tighten the tension one more
quarter of a turn.
6. Turn the bandsaw OFF and read the tension gauge.
Use the reading as a guide when tensioning that
blade in the future.
Note: Do not rely on this measurement for long
periods of time because the blade will stretch with
use, making the tension gauge slightly inaccurate.

Table Alignment
To ensure cutting accuracy when the table is first
installed, align the table so the miter slot is parallel to
the bandsaw blade. This procedure works best with the
largest blade that the machine accepts.
To align the miter slot parallel to the bandsaw blade,
do these steps:
1. Make sure the blade is correctly tracked and tensioned.
2. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
3. Loosen the trunnion bolts that secure the trunnions
to the table.
5. Use a fine ruler to gauge the distance between the
straightedge and the miter slot. The distance you
measure should be the same at both the front and
back ends of the miter slot, as indicated by positions
"A" and "B" in Figure 33.

6. Adjust the table until the distance between the
blade and miter slot is equal at both ends.
7. Tighten the trunnion bolts.
Fence Alignment
To align the fence parallel with the miter slot, do these
steps:
1. Mount the fence on the right-hand side of the blade,
at the edge of the miter slot, then lock it in place.
2. Loosen the two cap screws that mount the front rail
brackets to the table.
3. Shim between the front rail brackets and table to
make the fence parallel with the miter slot.
Tip: Shim stock works well for this, but small pieces
of paper can also work in a pinch.
4. Tighten the front rail mounting bolts.

Workpiece Inspection
(Wood)
Some wood workpieces are not safe to cut or may require
modification before they are safe to cut.
Before cutting wood, get in the habit of inspecting all
workpieces for the following:
Foreign Objects (Figure 36): Nails, staples, dirt,
rocks and other foreign objects are often embedded
in wood. While cutting, these objects can become
dislodged and hit the operator or break the blade,
which might then fly apart. Always visually inspect
your workpiece for these items. If they can't be
removed, do NOT cut the workpiece.
•
Large/Loose Knots: Loose knots can become dislodged during the cutting operation. Large knots can
cause blade damage. Choose workpieces that do not
have large/loose knots or plan ahead to avoid cutting through them.
•
Wet or "Green" Stock: Cutting wood with a moisture
content over 20% causes unnecessary wear on the
blade and yields poor results.
•
Excessive Warping: Workpieces with excessive
cupping, bowing, or twisting are dangerous to cut
because they are unstable and can move unpredictably when being cut. DO NOT cut excessively warped
wood.
•
Figure 36. Choosing wood without
embedded foreign objects embedded.
OPERATIONS
•
Cut with
this side
against fence
Minor Warping: Workpieces with slight cupping can
be safely supported if the cupped side faces the
table or fence, as shown in Figure 37. On the contrary, a workpiece supported on the bowed side will
rock during a cut, leading to loss of control.
Because of its unpredicatable nature, use extreme
caution if cutting warped stock. The difference
between acceptable and unacceptable warped stock
varies from machine to machine. If you are in doubt,
square-up the stock first or do not cut it.

Workpiece Inspection
(Metal)
Some metal workpieces are not safe to cut with a vertical metal cutting bandsaw; instead, a different tool or
machine should be used to do the cutting.
OPERATIONS
Before cutting, inspect the stock for any of the following conditions and take the necessary precautions:
•
Small or Thin Workpieces: Small or thin workpieces
are dangerous to cut if held by hand—avoid cutting these workpieces possible. If you must cut a
small or thin workpiece, attach it to or clamp it
between larger scrap pieces that will both support
the workpiece through the cut and keep your fingers
away from the blade. Some thin sheet metals will
not with withstand the forces from this bandsaw during cutting; instead, use a shear, nibblers, or sheet
metal nippers to cut these pieces.
•
Round or Unstable Workpieces: Workpieces that
cannot be properly supported or stablized without
a vise should not be cut on a vertical metal-cutting
bandsaw. Examples are chains, cables, round or
oblong-shaped workpieces, workpieces with internal
or built-in moving or rotating parts, etc.
•
Material Hardness: Always factor in the hardness
of the any metal before cutting it. Hardened metals will take longer to cut, may require lubrication,
and may require a different type of blade in order to
efficiently cut them.
•
Tanks, Cylinders, Containers, Valves, Etc: Cutting
into containers that are pressurized or contain gasses
or liquids can cause explosions, fires, caustic burns,
or machine damage. Avoid cutting any of these types
of containers unless you have verified that the container is empty and it can be properly supported
during a cut.
•
Magnesium: Pure magnesium burns easily. Cutting
magnesium with a dull blade can create enough friction to ignite the small magnesium chips into a fire.
Avoid cutting magnesium if possible.
•
Beryllium: Beryllium dust is toxic. Always wear a
respirator when cutting Beryllium or any alloys containing Beryllium. Also wear the respirator when
cleaning Beryllium dust and chips from the cutting
area.

Basic Cutting Tips
•
Keep the upper blade guide assembly adjusted to
within 1" of the workpiece.
•
Replace, sharpen, and clean blades as necessary.
Make adjustments periodically to keep the saw running in top condition.
•
Use light and even pressure while cutting. Light contact with the blade makes it easier to follow lines
and prevents extra friction, which reduces blade
life.
Avoid twisting the blade when cutting around tight
corners. Allow the blade to saw around the corners.
•
Misusing the saw or using incorrect techniques is
unsafe and results in poor cuts. Remember—the
blade does the cutting with the operator’s guidance.
Chips are width of
tooth, thin, curled,
and silvery:
Optimum speed and
feed rate.
•
Do not start the machine with the workpiece touching the blade.
Chips are silvery,
thin, small, or
powdery: Increase
feed rate; decrease
blade speed.
•
When cutting metal, pay attention to the characteristics of the chips when cutting—they are good indicators of proper blade speed and feed rate. Figure
38 shows the basic metal chip characteristics and
what they mean.
Chips are large,
curled, blue or
brown, or smoking:
Decrease feed rate;
increase blade speed.

Table Tilt
To tilt the table, do these steps:
1. Loosen the two trunnion knobs underneath the table.
2. Tilt the table to the desired angle. (Refer to the
angle gauge on the front table trunnion.)
3. Retighten both table-tunnion knobs.

ELECTROCUTION HAZARD
This bandsaw is not designed to be
used with water soluable cutting
fluid or coolant when cutting metals.
Instead, use a small amount of oilbased lubricant.
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
Guide Post
The guide post (shown in Figure 39) connects the upper
blade guide assembly to the bandsaw. The guidepost
allows the blade guide assembly to move up or down to
be as close to the workpiece as possible. In order to cut
accurately and safely, the bottom of the blade guide
assembly must be no more than 1" above the workpiece at
all times—this positioning provides the greatest blade support and minimizes the amount of moving blade exposed
to the operator.
Guide Post

Rip Cutting
When cutting solid wood, "Rip Cutting" means cutting with
the grain. For plywood or metal, rip cutting simply means
cutting down the length of the workpiece.
To make a rip cut, do these steps:
1. Adjust the fence to match the width of the cut on
your workpiece, then lock the fence in place.
2. Adjust the blade guide assembly to less than 1"
above the workpiece.
3. After all safety precautions have been met, turn the
bandsaw ON. Slowly feed the workpiece into the
blade and continue with the cut until the blade is
completely through the workpiece. Figure 40 shows
a typical ripping operation.
Note: If you cut narrow pieces, use a push stick to
protect your fingers.
-28-
Figure 40. Typical rip cut.
NEVER place fingers or hands in the
line of cut. If you slip, your hands or
fingers may go into the blade. ALWAYS
use a push stick when ripping narrow
pieces. Failure to follow these warnings may result in serious personal
injury!
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
Crosscutting
"Crosscutting" means cutting across the grain of wood.
For plywood or metal, crosscutting simply means cutting
across the width of the workpiece.
To make a 90˚ crosscut, do these steps:
1. Move the fence out of the way, adjust the blade
guide assembly to to less than 1" above the
workpiece, and make sure the miter gauge is set to
90°.
2. Mark the workpiece on the edge where you want to
begin the cut, place the workpiece evenly against
the miter gauge, and align the mark with the blade.
3. After all safety precautions have been met, turn the
bandsaw ON. Slowly feed the workpiece into the
blade and continue the cut until the blade is all the
way through the workpiece. Figure 41 shows a typical crosscutting operation.
Resawing
To resaw a workpiece, do these steps:
1. Verify that the bandsaw is setup properly and that
the table is perpendicular to the blade.
Because of its unpredicatable nature,
use extreme caution if cutting warped
stock. The difference between acceptable and unacceptable warped stock
varies from machine to machine. If
you are in doubt, square-up the stock
first or do not cut it.
NOTICE
The scale on the front rail will NOT be
accurate when using the resaw fence.
2. Use the widest blade your bandsaw will accept.
Note: The blade must also be sharp and clean.
3. Adjust the fence to the desired width of cut, and
lock it in place. (Support the ends of the board if
necessary.)
4. Turn the bandsaw ON.
5. Using push paddles and a push stick, maintain
workpiece pressure against the fence and table, and
slowly feed the workpiece into the moving blade
until the blade is completely through the workpiece
(see Figure 42).
-29-
Figure 42. Typical resawing operation.
OPERATIONS
"Resawing" (Figure 42) is cutting a workpiece into two
or more thinner workpieces. Use the widest blade possible when resawing—a wide blade cuts straighter and is
less prone to blade lead (see Page 40). For most applications, use a blade with a hook- or skip-tooth style. Choose
blades with fewer teeth-per-inch (from 3 to 6), because
they offer larger gullet capacities for clearing sawdust,
reducing heat buildup and reducing strain on the motor.
Figure 41. Typical crosscutting operation.
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
Cutting Curves
When cutting curves, simultaneously feed and turn the
stock carefully so the blade follows the layout line without twisting. If a curve is so abrupt that it is necessary to
repeatedly back up and cut a new kerf, use a narrower
blade, a blade with more TPI (teeth per inch), or make
more relief cuts.
Relief cuts are made through the waste portion of the
workpiece and stop at the layout line. Relief cuts reduce
the chance that the blade will be pinched or twisted during the cut.
Stacked Cuts
The list below shows the minimum
radius that can be cut by common
blade widths.
Width

⁄2''..................... 21⁄2''
5
⁄8''..................... 33⁄4''
3
⁄4''..................... 51⁄2''
Figure 43. Blade width radii.
One of the benefits of a bandsaw is its ability to cut multiple copies of a particular shape by stacking workpieces
together and cutting them as one. Before making stacked
cuts, ensure that both the table and the blade are properly adjusted to 90°; otherwise, any error will be compounded.
OPERATIONS
To complete a stacked cut, do these steps:
1. Align your pieces from top-to-bottom to ensure that
each piece has adequate scrap to provide a clean,
unhampered cut.
2. Secure all the pieces together in a manner that will
not interfere with the cutting. For wood, hot glue on
the edges works well, as do brad nails through the
waste portion. (Be careful not to cut into the brads
or you may break the blade!)
3. On the face of the top piece, mark the shape you
intend to cut.
4. Make relief cuts perpendicular to the outline of your
intended shape in areas where changes in blade
direction could cause the blade to bind.
5. Cut the stack of pieces as though you were cutting a single piece. Follow your layout line with the
blade kerf on the waste side of your line as shown in
Figure 44.

Blade Characteristics
(Wood Cutting)
Blade Length
Measured by the circumference, blade lengths are usually
unique to the brand of your bandsaw and the distance
between wheels. This saw uses 133" long blades.
Blade Width
Measured from the back of the blade to the tip of the
blade tooth (the widest point), blade width is often the
first consideration given to blade selection. Blade width
dictates the largest and smallest curve that can be cut, as
well as how accurately it can cut a straight line.
This saw uses blades from 1⁄8" to 11⁄4" in width. Always
pick the size of blade that best suits your application.
Curve Cutting: Use the chart in Figure 43 to determine the correct blade for curve cutting. Determine
the smallest radius curve that will be cut on your
workpiece and use the corresponding blade width.
•
Straight Cutting: Use the largest width blade that
you own. Large blades excel at cutting straight lines
and are less prone to wander.
OPERATIONS
•
Tooth Style
Figure 45 illustrates the three main tooth styles:
• Raker: Considered to be the standard because the
tooth size and shape are the same as the tooth
gullet. The teeth on raker blades usually are very
numerous, have no angle, and produce cuts by
scraping the material; these characteristics result in
very smooth cuts, but do not cut fast and generate
more heat than other types while cutting.
•
•
Skip: Similar to a raker blade that is missing every
other tooth. Because of the design, skip toothed
blades have a much larger gullet than raker blades,
and therefore, cut faster and generate less heat.
However, these blades also leave a rougher cut than
raker blades.
Hook: The teeth have a positive angle (downward)
which makes them dig into the material, and the
gullets are usually rounded for easier waste removal.
These blades are excellent for the tough demands of
resawing and ripping thick material.
-31-
Raker
Skip
Hook
Figure 45. Raker, Skip & Hook tooth
styles.
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
Tooth Pitch
Usually measured as TPI (teeth per inch), tooth pitch
determines the size/number of the teeth. More teeth
per inch (fine pitch) will cut slower, but smoother; while
fewer teeth per inch (coarse pitch) will cut rougher, but
faster. As a general rule, choose blades that will have at
least three teeth in the material at all times. Use fine
pitched blades on harder woods and coarse pitched blades
on softer woods.
Blade Care
OPERATIONS
A bandsaw blade is a delicate piece of steel that is subjected to tremendous strain. You can obtain longer use
from a bandsaw blade if you give it fair treatment and
always use the appropriate feed rate for your operation.
Be sure to select blades with the proper width, style, and
pitch for each application. The wrong choice of blades
will often produce unnecessary heat which will shorten
the life of your blade.
A clean blade will perform much better than a dirty
blade. Dirty or gummed up blades pass through the cutting material with much more resistance than clean
blades. This extra resistance also causes unnecessary
heat. Resin/pitch dissolving cleaners are excellent for
cleaning dirty blades.
Blade Breakage
Many conditions may cause a bandsaw blade to break.
Blade breakage is unavoidable, in some cases, since it is
the natural result of the peculiar stresses that bandsaw
blades must endure. Blade breakage is also due to avoidable circumstances. Avoidable breakage is most often
the result of poor care or judgement on the part of the
operator when mounting or adjusting the blade or support
guides.
The most common causes of blade breakage are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Faulty alignment/adjustment of the guides.
Forcing/twisting a wide blade around a short radius.
Feeding the workpiece too fast.
Dull teeth or damaged tooth set.
Overtensioned blade.
Top blade guide assembly set too high above the
workpiece.
Using a blade with a lumpy or improperly finished
braze or weld.
Continuously running the bandsaw when not in use.
Leaving blade tensioned when not in use.
Using the wrong TPI for the workpiece thickness.
(The general rule of thumb is three teeth in the
workpiece at all times.)

Blade Selection
(Metal Cutting)
2. Refer to the "Material Width/Diameter"
row of the blade selection chart in Figure
46 and read across to find the workpiece
thickness you need to cut.
Selecting the right blade for the job depends on
a variety of factors, such as the type of material being cut, hardness of the material, material
shape machine capability, and operator technique.
3. Compare the "Material Shapes" row to the
material to be cut.
4. In the applicable row, read across to the
right and find the box where the row and
column intersect. Listed in the box is the
minimum TPI recommended for the variable tooth pitch blades.
The chart below is a basic starting point for
choosing a blade type based on teeth per inch
(TPI) for variable tooth pitch blades and for
standard raker type bi-metal blades/HSS blades.
However, for exact specifications of bandsaw
blades, contact the blade manufacturer.
5. The "Cutting Speed Rate Recommendation"
section of the charts offers guidelines for
various metals, given in feet per minute
(speed FPM) and meters per minute in
parenthesis. Choose the speed closest to
the number shown in the chart.
To select the correct blade TPI, do these steps:
1. Measure the material thickness.

Blade Changes
To replace the blade, do these steps:
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. Release the tension lever.
3. Remove the table insert and the table pin. Adjust
the upper and lower guide blocks away from the
blade.
4. Open the upper and lower wheel covers and slide
the blade off both wheels.
5. Rotate the blade 90˚ and slide it through the slot in
the table.
Always disconnect power to the
machine when changing blades.
Failure to do this may result in serious
personal injury.
6. Slide the new blade through the table slot, ensuring
that the teeth are pointing down toward the table.
If the teeth will not point downward in any orientation, the blade is inside-out. Put on heavy gloves,
remove the blade, and twist it rightside-out.
OPERATIONS
7. Slip the blade through the guides, and mount it over
the upper and lower wheels.
8. Apply tension.
9. Turn the tension knob until proper blade tension has
been reached according to the blade thickness scale
shown in Figure 47.
All saw blades are dangerous and may
cause personal injury. To reduce the
risk of being injured, wear leather
gloves when handling saw blades.
10. Check and adjust the tracking (Page 17).
11. Adjust the upper/lower guide blocks and the support
bearings (Pages 20 and 21).
12. Close the wheel covers.
13. Replace the table insert and table pin, being sure
not to use excessive force when inserting the table
pin.

Fence Scale Calibration
You may need to recalibrate the fence scale after changing or adjusting the blade, or if the scale is not producing
accurate cuts. Recalibrate the fence scale by adjusting
the hairline indicator on the fence and testing your adjustment by cutting a piece of scrap wood.
To calibrate the scale, do these steps:
1. Set the fence anywhere along the scale and locate a
piece of scrap wood with at least one straight edge.
Note: Joint the edge with a jointer (if needed) to
make the edge straight.
2. Hold the straight edge of the workpiece firmly
against the fence, and feed the workpiece through
the saw blade with a push stick.
3. Measure the width of the cut workpiece. The width
of the workpiece should match the reading on the
fence scale.
5. Tighten the screw; the scale is now correctly calibrated.
-35-
Figure 48. Scale calibration screws.
OPERATIONS
4. If the reading on the scale is not the same as the
width of the cut workpiece, loosen the screw on
the magnifying window (Figure 48), and adjust it to
match the width of the cut workpiece.

MAINTENANCE
Schedule
For optimum performance from your machine, follow this
maintenance schedule:
Daily
•
•
•
•
Check/correct loose mounting bolts.
Check/correct damaged saw blade.
Check/correct worn or damaged wires.
Correct any other unsafe condition.
Monthly
•
•
•
Check for V-belt tension, damage, or wear.
Remove blade and thoroughly clean all built-up sawdust from the rubber tires on the wheels.
Clean/vacuum dust buildup from inside cabinet and
off motor.
Cleaning
Make sure that your machine is
unplugged during all maintenance procedures! If this warning is ignored, serious personal injury may occur.
Redressing Rubber
Tires
Vacuum excess wood chips and sawdust, and wipe
off the remaining dust with a dry cloth. If resin
has built up, use a resin dissolving cleaner to
remove it.
As the bandsaw ages, the rubber tires on the
wheels may need to be redressed if they harden
or glaze over. Redressing the rubber tires improves
blade tracking and reduces vibration/blade lead.
If the rubber tires become too worn, then blade
tracking will become extremely difficult. At that
point, redressing will no longer be effective and
the rubber tires must be replaced.
Table & Base
Protect the unpainted cast iron surfaces on
the table by wiping the table clean after every
use—this ensures moisture from wood dust does
not remain on bare metal surfaces. Keep tables
rust-free with regular applications of general
lubricants such as G96® Gun Treatment, SLIPIT®,
or Boeshield® T-9.
To redress the rubber tires, do these steps:
If the table becomes difficult to tilt, remove it
and lubricate the trunnions and the slides in the
trunnion base with a general lubricant.
4. Clean any built-up sawdust from the rubber
tires.
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. Put on heavy leather gloves.
3. Remove the blade.
5. Hold 100 grit sandpaper against the rubber tire and rotate the wheel by hand.
Only redress the rubber enough to expose a
fresh rubber surface.

Servicing V-Belts
To ensure optimum power transfer from the motor to the
blade, the V-belts must be in good condition and operate
under proper tension. Check belt tension at least every 3
months—more often if the bandsaw is used daily. V-belts
stretch with use and must be periodically re-tensioned.
Make sure that your machine is
unplugged during all service procedures! If this warning is ignored, serious personal injury may occur.

Shimming Table
To ensure accuracy when cutting stacked workpieces, the
table should be 90˚ to the back of the blade as shown in
Figure 53. If the table is not perpendicular to the back of
the blade, the table needs to be shimmed.
Blade
Shims can be made of any durable object that can be
sandwiched between the table and the trunnions. We recommend using shim washers or shim stock because of the
wide range of available thicknesses. These items can be
purchased at your local hardware store.
Square
Table
To shim the table, do these steps:
1. Make sure that the blade is tracking properly and
that it is correctly tensioned.
Figure 53. Squaring table to blade back.
2. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
3. Loosen the trunnion bolts that secure the trunnions
to the table.
4. Shim between the table and the two trunnions to
move the table in the desired direction.
5. Follow the Aligning Table instructions on Page 23 to
complete this procedure.
Blade Lead
"Blade Lead" means that the blade does not cut straight
when using the fence or miter gauge (see Figure 54). This
is a common condition with all bandsaws. Worn or damaged blades may cause lead and replacing them will fix the
problem. Still, if your bandsaw is setup correctly and lead
occurs, compensate for it by skewing the fence.
SERVICE
To correct blade lead, do the following steps and make
a test cut before skewing the fence:
1. Ensure that you have proper blade tension (refer to
Page 19).
2. Ensure that the blade guides are adjusted correctly
(refer to Pages 20 & 21).
3. Ensure that the miter slot or fence is parallel to the
blade (refer to Page 23).
-40-
Figure 54. Blade leading away from line of
cut.
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
To skew your fence, do these steps:
1. Cut a piece of scrap wood approximately 3⁄4" thick
x 3" wide x 17" long. On a wide face of the board,
draw a straight line parallel to the long edge.
2. Slide the fence out of the way and cut free-hand
along the line. Stop at the halfway point. Turn the
bandsaw OFF and wait for the blade to stop.
3. Clamp the board to the bandsaw table without moving it. Now slide the fence over to the board so it
barely touches one end of the board.
4. Loosen the two cap screws that mount the front rail
brackets to the table.
5. Shim between the front rail brackets and the table
as necessary to make the fence parallel to the edge
of the scrap piece.
To compensate for lead when making straight crosscuts
with the miter gauge, do these steps:
1. Set the miter gauge to 90° and verify that the gauge
body is square to the miter bar, using a 90° square.
2. On a scrap piece of wood, mark a line that is perpendicular to the front edge of the workpiece.
NOTICE
3. Starting where the line begins, cut the board by
pushing it through the blade with the miter gauge.
If the table is shifted, the fence will be
affected since it is attached.
4. Loosen the table trunnion mounting bolts, and shift
the table to compensate for the blade lead.
NOTICE
5. Repeat Steps 1 & 2 until the blade cuts straight
when wood is pushed through with the miter gauge.
Lead adjustments will change when new
blades are mounted on the saw.

Wheel Alignment
When wheels are aligned, or coplanar, the bandsaw cuts
straighter, with much less vibration, heat, and blade wear
because the blade is automatically balanced on the wheel.
See Figure 55 to better understand coplanarity.
Verifying Upper/Lower Wheels are Coplanar
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. With the blade on and properly tensioned, hold
a straightedge or a self-made "coplanarity gauge"
(Figure 55) close to the center of both wheels. Make
sure the straightedge or gauge fully extends across
the wheels as shown in Figure 55.
—If the wheels are coplanar, the straightedge will
evenly touch the top and bottom of both wheels.
Coplanarity Gauge
If your bandsaw develops tracking problems that can't be
fixed by adjusting the upper wheel tracking knobs, then
check the wheel alignment before taking any other steps.

2. Make sure the top wheel is adjusted parallel with
the bottom wheel.
3. With the straightedge touching both points of the
wheel that does not need to be adjusted, measure
the distance away from the incorrect wheel with a
fine ruler (see Figure 56).
4. Remove the blade from the saw, then remove the
wheel that needs to be shimmed.
5. Determine how many shim washers you need to compensate for the distance measured in Step 3 and
place them on the wheel shaft.
6. Replace the wheel, the original washers, and the
securing nut.

Figure 56. Measuring wheel difference.
Model M1113 (Mfg. Since 2/08)
7. Tighten the blade, then check the wheels. (Coplanar
wheels may pull out of alignment when the blade is
tightened.)
8. When the wheels are coplanar, place a mark on each
wheel where you held the straightedge. This assures
repeated accuracy every time you adjust your
wheels.
Note: When wheels are properly coplanar, the blade
may not be centered on the crown of the wheel, but
it will be balanced.
Adjusting Lower Wheel
Only do this procedure if you cannot make the wheels
coplanar with the tracking knob or by shimming the upper
wheel. Make sure the upper wheel is adjusted as close as
possible to being coplanar with the lower wheel before
beginning. Do this procedure with the blade fully tensioned.
To adjust the lower wheel, do these steps:
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. Loosen the four hex bolts on the lower wheel adjustment hub (Figure 57).

WARRANTY
Woodstock International, Inc. warrants all Shop Fox machinery to be free of defects from workmanship
and materials for a period of two years from the date of original purchase by the original owner.
This warranty does not apply to defects due directly or indirectly to misuse, abuse, negligence or
accidents, lack of maintenance, or reimbursement of third party expenses incurred.
Woodstock International, Inc. will repair or replace, at its expense and at its option, the Shop Fox
machine or machine part, which in normal use has proven to be defective, provided that the original
owner returns the product prepaid to a Shop Fox factory service center with proof of their purchase
of the product within two years, and provides Woodstock International, Inc. reasonable opportunity to
verify the alleged defect through inspection. If it is determined there is no defect, or that the defect
resulted from causes not within the scope of Woodstock International Inc.'s warranty, then the original
owner must bear the cost of storing and returning the product.
This is Woodstock International, Inc.'s sole written warranty and any and all warranties that may
be implied by law, including any merchantability or fitness, for any particular purpose, are hereby
limited to the duration of this written warranty. We do not warrant that Shop Fox machinery complies
