ASSEMBLY
Do not plug this unit into a power source until assembly is complete.
To assemble the stand and motor, review the components diagram as shown in Figure 1 and the Parts List
on page 12. You may choose to begin assembling the stand first and gradually add all other components.
The motor housing may be attached last. Once assembled, attach the Rubber Feet to the four corners of the
stand. The feet will help reduce vibration when the saw is in use. NOTE: When installing the Motor
Support Plate (Part # 82), it must angle toward the front, otherwise the motor will not line up properly
with the Drive Wheel in the upper housing. Ignore the holes on top of Part # 95, as they serve no
purpose. Once the stand and motor are assembled, attach it to the main body of the saw using three long
bolts, through the three elliptical openings (A) in the Upper Cover (Part # 78).

Once the base is assembled, attach the Drive Belt (Part # 55) to the motor
wheel (A) and to the Spindle Wheel (B) in the compartment directly above.
If the two wheels don’t line up properly, loosen the four bolts (C) holding the
motor in place and slide the motor up or down, depending on need. Once
the wheels line up, retighten the bolts. (Figure 2)

Replacing or Adjusting the Saw Blade
Make sure the machine is unplugged from a power source before replacing
D
or adjusting the saw blade.
To prevent serious injury, wear heavy-duty work gloves when working with
or around the saw blade.
Figure 3
Remove the Table
E
Before attempting to remove or replace the blade, the stainless steel table must be
removed. To do this, remove the socket screws which attach the Table Support (D)
to the table. Then, from the left side of the table, pull the table back and off. Once
removed, place the table on a flat surface away from the machine to prevent damage
while working with the blade. (Figure 3)
Removing the Blade Cover
Figure 4
Remove the socket screws on the side and back of the Cover (E) (Figure 4). Once
removed, the cover will slip up and off, exposing the Drive Wheel and saw blade.
F
Then remove the Blade Guard (F) and Upper Guard Plate (G) (Figure 5).
NOTE: For best results, stand to the left front of the table while performing the
following steps.
Turning the nut (H) counterclockwise lowers and decreases tension on the Drive
Wheel (I) allowing you to adjust the alignment of the blade or to replace the blade
entirely. (Figure 6)
G
Figure 5
H
To center the blade on the wheel, loosen the two nuts (J) until the blade centers onto
the Drive Wheel, and then retighten the nuts. Turning the wheel by hand makes
moving the blade easier. Adjust the socket screw (K) to increase or decrease the
angle on the Drive Wheel, helping center the blade on the wheel.
J
I
K
Once the top part of the blade is set, the bottom will need adjustment. First, loosen
the two socket screws to adjust the Guide Plates (L), making sure there is at least
1/32" space between the edges of the guide plates and saw blade (M) (Figure 7).

Mounting a New Blade
H
Use only authorized replacement blades (BSB-MBS) measuring 82” x 5 / 8”.
J
I
To mount a new blade, begin by placing the upper portion of the blade
onto the upper drive wheel, teeth facing down and toward you. While doing this,
insert the blade in the slot located on the upper guide body (N). (Figure 8)
K
Figure 6
Mount the lower half of the blade on the bottom drive wheel, making sure the blade
goes in the slot (O) on the lower guide body. (Figure 9)
M
L
Loosen the socket screw (P) to adjust the bearing (Q) so that it is at least 1/32" away
from the blade. (Figure 10)
To adjust the saw blade so that it is properly lined up in the cutting channel, first
loosen the two socket screws (R). Loosening these screws allows the two small
guides (S) to move toward or away from the blade, centering it in the channel.
Loosening the socket screw (T) on the Blade Guide will move it toward or away from
the blade. Finally, loosen the socket screw (U) to move the Bearing (V) toward or
away from the blade. For best results, the bearing should be 1/32" away from the
blade. (Figure 11)
Once these steps are complete, replace the blade cover, blade guard, table, table
support and upper guard plate. To center the blade on the wheel, loosen the two
nuts (J) until the blade centers onto the Drive Wheel, and then retighten the nuts.
Turning the wheel by hand makes moving the blade easier. Adjust the socket
screw (K) to increase or decrease the angle on the Drive Wheel, helping center
the blade on the wheel. (Figure 6)

Once the top part of the blade is set, the bottom will need adjustment. First, loosen
the two socket screws to adjust the Guide Plates (L), making sure there is at least

Assembling the Power Switch
Do not use sharp tools when assembling the power switch, as they may
W
damage the insulation on the wires.
X
If you are unfamiliar with electrical work, contact a professional electrician
to perform the install.
The ON/OFF power switch (W) is located in the upper corner of the stand. Attach
the switch to the side of the steel stand using two nuts, bolts and washers (X).
NOTE: Be sure ON is at the top. (Figure 12)
Take the single black power cord and insert the black, white and green wires
through the three parts of the cable bushing (Y) before inserting them through the
front panel of the stand. (Figure 13) Do not tighten the bushing until the wires
are connected to the proper terminals. Once the wires are inserted through the
front panel, insert them through one of the holes in the switch cover. (The cover
has been removed in Figure 13 to better show the connections to the terminals.) Be
sure the clear plastic insulation stays with each wire. Once the wires are through,
pull some of the black cable through as well. This will make it easier to connect the
wires to the terminals.

Insert the black, white and green wires coming off the motor into the other hole in
the switch cover.
Attach the black wires to the terminals on one side of the switch, and the white
wires to the terminals on the other side. The green Ground wires are connected
directly to the steel side panel with a nut, bolt and washer on each. The Ground
symbol
is located in the center of two holes, which are covered by stickers.
Remove the stickers, insert a bolt with the ground wire attached through each, and
apply the washer and nut. Once tightened, the Ground wires use the steel structure
of the machine to ground the electric. (Figure 13)
Attach the switch cover (Z) to the steel cabinet with nuts, bolts and washers, and
tighten the cable bushing (AA) by hand. (Figure 14)

Attaching the Stainless Steel Table
Use caution when guiding the table past the saw blade as serious may
Figure 15
occur. Wear protective gloves.
Remove the four socket screws from the table support as described on Page 7 (Figure 3). Then, from
the left front side of the machine, hold the table in both hands and guide it up onto the two table guide
wheels (BB) on that side. The wheels should fit the rails which are already attached to the underside of
the table. Guide the table across the top of the machine to the guide wheels on the opposite side. Once
the table is in place, reattach the table support. (Figure 15)

Assembling the Fence and Pusher
The fence (CC) and pusher (DD) have predetermined spaces for attachment to the
table. The fence attaches to the side, the pusher attaches to the end. Using socket
screws, attach the fence and pusher to their respective areas. (Figure 16)
OPERATION
DD
Figure 16
Before and after use, wash all parts with warm soapy water.
Wear protective gloves, clothing and eye protection while operating the Band Saw.
Saw blade and grinder knife are sharp! Use care when using and cleaning the product to prevent injury.
Dull blades require extra effort, which leads to blade breakage, resulting in flying debris and possible injury
to the user or bystanders.
Once the cut is made, turn the machine off and allow the blade to come to a complete stop before
removing the cut meat. Repeat this process until finished with the original piece of meat.
Proper blade tension is important, both for optimum cutting and safety. There should be no
flexibility with the blade.
NOTE: For best results, chilled or slightly frozen meats make uniform cutting easier.
However, do not cut completely frozen meat as it may damage the blade.

EE
Basic Meat Cutting Procedures
Place the meat on the stainless steel table and position it between the saw blade
in front (EE, out of picture), the pusher (FF), and the fence (GG) on the left. Note:
The fence and the pusher have adjusting knobs (HH) allowing you to adjust the
placement of both, depending on the size of the piece of meat. (Figure 17)
Adjust the vertical placement of the Blade Guard (II) so there is a maximum 1/2"
space between it and the top of the meat to be cut. To adjust the Blade Guard,
loosen the knob (JJ) on the Blade Guard and raise or lower it to expose more or
less of the blade. Once in the desired position, tighten the knob. NOTE: There is
a flat side on the Guide Post (KK) that must face the knob to work properly.
(Figure 18)

Turn the Power On using the ON/OFF switch (LL). Allow the blade to reach full
speed. With one hand on the pusher and the other on the fence, push the table
forward into the rotating blade, careful to keep your hands out of the path of the
blade. (Figure 19)

Meat Grinder Use
Before using the Meat Grinder, clean all the working parts with hot soapy water. Do not attempt to
grind bones or frozen meat as they may damage the grinder. Do not use fingers, utensils or
anything other than the Push Rod to press meat into the intake.
Attach the Meat Grinder to the machine (MM). Slide the sausage casing over the
exposed Tube Connector (NN). The sausage casing is now ready to be filled with
the meat of your choice. (Figure 20)
As shown in Figure 20, fill the Meat Grinder Intake (OO) with meat. Using the
supplied plastic Push Rod (PP), slowly press the meat into the intake. Feeding the
meat into the intake will result in the meat being pumped out of the intake and into
the tube connector, filling the sausage casing. Keep pressing until the sausage
casing is full.
