SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Know your machine,
its safe and proper use!
DISCONNECT POWER before adjusting or servicing
the saw or changing a blade.
FOR ALL TOOLS
STAY CLEAR of all moving parts. Keep hands and
fingers away form the saw blade.
KEEP GUARD IN PLACE and in working order.
WHEN MOVING SAW, with hinged frame (saw head),
secure the head in its down position.
REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES.
Form a habit. Check to see that all keys and wrenches
are removed from the tool before turning the tool on.
WHEN CUTTING MAGNESIUM, take special precautions. Use a sharp saw blade, make only dry cuts, prevent chip accumulation, and keep fire-fighting equipment nearby.
KEEP WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benched invite accidents.
THIS SAW SHOULD BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE
TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM ELECTRICAL SHOCK.
AVOID DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT. Do not use
power tools in damp or wet locations. Keep your work
area well lighted.
CORD CONNECTED TOOLS. If the saw is equipped
with an approved 3-conductor cord and a 3-prong
grounding type plug, it should only be connected to
a properly equipped and grounded receptacle. The
green conductor in the cord is the grounding wire.
Never connect the green wire to a live terminal.
KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. All visitors should be kept a
safe distance from work area.
MAKE WORKSHOP KID-PROOF with padlocks, master switches, or by removing starter keys form tools.
DON’T FORCE TOOL. It will do the job better and
safer at the rate for which it is designed
Use only a 3-wire extension cord having a 3-pronged
receptacle, a 3-pronged plug and ample amperage rating. Replace or repair a damaged or worn cord immediately.
USE RIGHT TOOL. Don’t use a tool a or attachment
to do a job for which it was not designed.
WEAR PROPER APPAREL. No loose clothing or jewelry to get caught in moving parts. Rubber-soled footwear is recommended for best footing.
PERMANENTLY CONNECTED TOOLS. The saw
should be connected to a grounded, metal-enclosed
wiring system or an equipment-grounding conductor
should be run with the circuit conductors and connected to the saw’s grounding terminal or lead.
USE SAFETY GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask
if operation is dusty.
To reset the manual starter after a power interruption,
return the switch to OFF and press the RESET button
before restarting.
SECURE WORK. Use clamps or a vise to hold work.

INSTALLATION, OPERATION and MAINTENANCE
of the No. 5 WELLS METAL CUTTING BANDSAW
The No. 5 METAL CUTTING BANDSAW was designed for efficient performance, and with proper care will
give you many years of dependable service.
Each saw is completely assembled, checked thoroughly and subjected to a test run; no further adjustments
should be necessary.
This manual has been prepared to assist you in the proper installation, operation and maintenance of your
new Wells Metal Cutting Band Saw. If you should desire additional information or assistance, we suggest you
contact your dealer’s service representative.
Read this manual carefully. It was prepared to help you.
INSTALLATION
•
Upon receipt of machine, uncrate and check all parts.
Report to your carrier any damage to machine and file
Proof of Loss Claim with same.
•
•
•
•
Place motor in position on motor pivot post and
install V-Belt.
Be sure motor specifications correspond with your
power line.
Place machine so that each leg is carrying its
share of the load.
AUTOMATIC STOP
When the saw blade has completed the cut through
the material, the saw frame drops on a trigger to
which a rod is attached. This rod passes through
the frame of the machine to the switch on the opposite side, and opens the contacts, thereby stopping
the saw.
It will be necessary to raise saw frame clear of the
trigger before machine can he started.
Read instructions carefully.
OPERATION
•
•
•
•
screw until the blade is taut.
Start motor and tighten blade to proper operating
tension.
Make certain that the blade teeth point same way
blade is running; if not, this can he accomplished
turning the blade inside out.
Do not apply too much feed at first on new
blade.
Start cut carefully and the blade will last much
longer.
Make sure all four legs are in solid contact
with the floor.
Keep blade guides as close to both Vise Jaws
as possible.
FIXED VISE JAW
The two pins in the fixed vise jaw should be kept in
place in order to insure square cuts. When cutting
angles, these pins must be removed and the vise
jaws turned to desired position and tightened with
clamp bolts. These pins enable operators to quickly
relocate fixed vise jaw for 90° cutting. For final
adjustment, the vise jaw should be squared with
the blade.
PLACING BLADE ON SAW
•
•
•
•
The sliding vise jaw should be loosened and pushed
against fixed vise jaw and then tightened.
Raise frame to extreme height.
Remove blade guard on high side of frame.
Turn idler band wheel tension screw until the
blade will slide on wheels easily. With blade uncoiled, place in roller guides and between brushes, then over band wheels.
Grasp blade on frame side and push toward guide
bracket beam to hold in position, then turn tension
NEW BLADE TENSIONING DEVICE
On saws equipped with blade tensioning device,
tighten hand wheel tension screw until gauge bar is
flush with end of casting.

SLIDING VISE JAW
MAINTENANCE
The sliding vise jaw is equipped with a ratchet and
ratchet dog for quick action and with a hand wheel for
tightening work in vise.
Excessive pressure is not required to hold
material securely in the vise.
BLADE GUIDES
MAXIMUM CAPACITY
To obtain maximum vise capacity remove vise jaw
pins and move fixed vise jaw toward motor end. Make
sure stock in vise will not strike the ratchet arm.
DASH POT
Machines are equipped with a dash pot (frame check)
for the purpose of stabilizing the downward travel of
the saw frame, thereby protecting saw blade from
damage. The action is hydraulic and controlled by
flow of fluid being bypassed through an orifice in the
piston on the downward stroke. Only light hydraulic
oil should be used in the cylinder.
SWITCH
A “STOP-START” switch is installed across the line
to protect the wiring and brushes of the motor. A thermal coil is provided which breaks the circuit should an
overload occur in the line. The operator should allow
time for coil to cool before trying to start after the circuit has been broken.
Automatic shut-off operates when saw frame contacts
the switch trigger, which is attached to the frame rest.
BELT
Usually the weight of the motor holds the belt tight
enough, but in case it does not, the clamp on the
swivel post should be tightened.
SPEED SELECTION
Saws are equipped with step pulleys, which provide a
selection of speed ranges:
• Use the fast speed to cut thin-wall metal, tubing,
thin channels, aluminum, thin brass, or any metal
that will not burn the teeth.
• Use the medium speeds on general cutting such
as cold rolled, machine steels, heavy channels,
etc.
• Use the slow speed for cutting nickel steels or any
metals which require a slow speed on a lathe.
• Use beeswax when cutting brass. Brass should always be cut with a blade which has not previously
cut other metal.
•
If teeth wear off unusually fast, use slower speed.
Always keep the blade at proper blade tension
5
when cutting.
The blade guides are arranged to hold the blade in
alignment both vertically and horizontally.
Before making any adjustments, always try a new
blade to be sure that the old blade was not causing the difficulty.
To align the blade horizontally, be sure fixed vise is
square with bed, then square blade with vise. If out of
alignment, loosen one upper set screw In “Roller Adjuster” (M-92) and tighten opposite set screw, moving
blade in desired direction.
For the vertical alignment, raise frame until blade
just clears bed, then place edge of square on bed with
end against blade being careful not to contact tooth
set. Use feeler gauge not to exceed .002”, adjusting
blade so that feeler gauge will not enter at top or bottom between end of square and blade. If out of alignment, loosen one lower set screw in “Roller Adjuster”
(M-92) and tighten opposite set screw, moving blade
in desired direction. For this vertical alignment, check
blade at both front and rear guides.
Adjust the side roller guides (#100406-001) with
the eccentric axle until both rollers contact blade.
When this adjustment is made, the rollers should be
adjusted so that the path of the blade is straight
and blade is not forced to curve around the rollers.
The back edge of the blade should be even with the
top surface of the side rollers. The top roller guide
(#100406-001) should be in contact with back of blade
at all times.
Always keep set screws and thumb screws tight.
BLADE BRUSHES
Brushes should be cleaned frequently in kerosene
and reversed to take advantage of both rows of bristles.
For best results, replace worn, filled or sticky brushes
with new ones. In bolting brushes to angles, be sure
wire bristles are bent in same direction blade travels.
LUBRICATION
•
The correct and adequate lubrication is a very
important factor in determining the life and service to be obtained. It is imperative that all dust and
dirt should be removed before lubricating.
• Keep vise adjusting screw well lubricated with
a medium type of grease.
• The gears in the gear case are lubricated with
a metal penetrating type of grease that will not
channel. A small quantity of this lubricant can be
added through hole in side of gear case when
required.
• The electric motor has sealed-type ball bearings
and should be oiled at regular intervals according to standard practices, when repacking, a high
grade medium type of grease should be used.
• Keep internal ring gear and pinion well greased
with a good quality fiber type grease (medium
grade). For proper inspection and for greasing
these gears, it is necessary to remove the drive
wheel.
• Lubricate the motor pivot post with a few drops of
machine oil. If properly lubricated, the weight of
the motor will keep the belt tight, and allow easy
speed changes.
• Wheel ball bearings are lubricated by pressing
out the bearings and repacking them with a good
quality of ball bearing grease.
Keep machine clean and be sure no cuttings are
allowed to mix with lubricants, as this forms an
abrasive which is detrimental to the operation of
the machine.
Use only hydraulic oil for dash pot.
WHEEL PITCH ADJUSTMENT
Loosen Blade Before Making These Adjustments!
In case the blade runs too low, or off the idler wheel,
adjust the wheel block to which the wheel is mounted.
To do this, loosen the two cap screws marked “1”
one-half turn and tighten two cap screws marked “2”
an equal amount.
To make similar adjustment on drive wheel at motor
end, it is necessary to loosen the two cap screws at
“3”, then make pitch adjustment by loosening two hollow head set screws at “4” and tighten two hollow
head set screws at “3”. The four cap screws should
then be tightened to hold motor plate in a rigid and
fast position.
If there is too much pitch on the wheel the blade will
run too high. This will cause the blade to become
distorted and the back of the blade will be rolled over,
also the wheel rim flange will show excessive wear.
To correct this condition, loosen two cap screws at
“2”, tighten two cap screws at “1”. Loosen two
cap screws at “4”, then make pitch adjustment by
loosening two hollow headset screws at “3” and
tightening two hollow head set screws at “4”. The
four cap screws should then be tightened to hold
motor plate in a rigid and fast position.
FRAME WEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Place weight on slide bar at motor end of slide and
remove dash pot, before adjusting frame spring under
motor end, The frame spring should be adjusted
for approximately 10 Ibs. Use slide weight to make
final feed adjustment. The cutting pressure,
which determines the feed, should not be increased
to a point where the blade starts to run sidewise while
cutting. Large stock will stand a heavier feed than
small stock.
