About This Machine
Capabilities
Features
This metal cutting bandsaw uses a gravity-fed
blade to make straight cuts through workpieces
that are clamped in a vise. Since the workpiece is
secured and remains stationary while the blade
feeds automatically, accuracy and operator safety
are maximized.
In addition to its capabilities, the Model SB1017
has several features to increase versatility and
efficiency.
The vise on the Model SB1017 is capable of
holding rectangular stock up to 5" x 6" and round
stock up to 5".
After a cut is complete, the OFF switch is
triggered and the motor automatically turns off.
The vise can be rotated to perform angled cuts up
to 45° while three blade speeds ensure that the
proper cutting rate is available for a variety of
workpiece sizes and materials.
Both the downfeed rate and pressure are
adjustable for fine-tuning each cutting operation
and an adjustable auto-OFF power switch
maximizes safety and minimizes energy use by
turning the machine off at the end of every cut.
A storage compartment in the cabinet base
provides a convenient location for keeping spare
blades or other accessories and the transport
handle makes moving the machine easy.
Finally, the cast-aluminum knobs and belt cover
proudly bear the legendary South Bend name.

SAFETY
For Machines Mfg. Since 8/09
Additional Metal Bandsaw Safety
1. Blade Condition. A dull or damaged
blade can break apart during operation,
increasing the risk of operator injury. Do
not operate with a dull, cracked or badly
worn blade. Inspect the blade for cracks
or missing teeth before each use.
2. Hand Placement. Hands could be cut
by the blade or crushed when lowering
the headstock. Never position fingers or
thumbs in line with the cut or under the
headstock while it is moving.
3. Blade Guard. Hands and fingers can
easily be cut by the bandsaw blade. To
reduce the risk of laceration injuries, do
not operate this bandsaw without the
blade guard in place.
4. Starting Position. To reduce the
likelihood of blade breakage and possible
entanglement, never turn the saw ON
with the blade resting on the workpiece.
5. Blade Replacement. The blade can
only make a safe and efficient cut if the
teeth are facing the workpiece. When
replacing blades, make sure the teeth
face toward the workpiece. Wear gloves
to protect hands and safety glasses to
protect eyes.
-8-
6. Workpiece Handling. A shifting workpiece
can result in impact or laceration injuries.
To reduce the risk of injury, always securely
clamp the workpiece in the vise and use
additional support fixtures if needed. Never
hold the workpiece with your hands during
a cut. Flag long pieces to reduce the risk of
tripping over them.
7. Power Interruption. Unplug the machine
and turn the power switch OFF after a
power interruption. If left plugged in and
turned ON, this machine will start up when
power is restored, resulting in possible
entanglement, laceration, or amputation
hazards.
8. Hot Surfaces/Sharp Edges. Due to the
cutting process, a freshly cut workpiece,
chips, and some machine components
can be hot enough to burn you and sharp
enough to cut you. Allow components to cool
and use safe handling methods to reduce
the risk of these injuries.
9. Moving Blade. A moving bandsaw blade
presents a serious risk for laceration or
amputation injuries. Always allow the blade
to come to a complete stop before mounting
or repositioning a workpiece in the vise.
Never touch a moving blade.

PREPARATION
Preparation Overview Power Supply
The purpose of the preparation section is to help
Requirements
you prepare your machine for operation. The
list below outlines the basic process to follow
to prepare your machine for operation. Specific
steps for each of these points will be covered in
detail later in this section.
The typical preparation process is as follows:
1. Unpack the machine and inventory the
contents of the carton.
2. Clean the machine and its components.
3. Make any necessary adjustments or
inspections to ensure the machine is ready
for operation.
4. Connect the machine to the power source.
5. Test run the machine to make sure it
functions properly and is ready for operation.
Required for Setup
The items listed below are required to
successfully set up and prepare this machine for
operation.
For Power Connection
•
•
A power source that meets the minimum
circuit requirements for this machine. (Refer
to the Power Supply Requirements
section for details.)
A qualified electrician to ensure a safe and
code-compliant connection to the power
source.
Availability
Before installing the machine, consider the
availability and proximity of the required power
supply circuit. If an existing circuit does not meet
the requirements for this machine, a new circuit
must be installed.
To minimize the risk of electrocution, fire,
or equipment damage, installation work and
electrical wiring must be done by a qualified
electrician in accordance with all applicable
codes and standards.
Electrocution or fire may
occur if machine is not
correctly grounded and
attached to the power
supply. Use a qualified
electrician to ensure a safe
power connection.
Full-Load Current Rating
The full-load current rating is the amperage
a machine draws at 100% of the rated output
power. On machines with multiple motors, this is
the amperage drawn by the largest motor or sum
of all motors and electrical devices that might
operate at one time during normal operations.
Full-Load Rating at 110V................... 8.6 Amps
Full-Load Rating at 220V................... 4.3 Amps
The full-load current is not the maximum
amount of amps that the machine will draw. If
the machine is overloaded, it will draw additional
amps beyond the full-load rating.
If the machine is overloaded for a sufficient
length of time, damage, overheating, or fire may
result—especially if connected to an undersized
circuit. To reduce the risk of these hazards,
avoid overloading the machine during operation
and make sure it is connected to a power supply
circuit that meets the requirements in the
following section.

Circuit Information
Grounding Requirements
A power supply circuit includes all electrical
equipment between the main breaker box or fuse
panel in your building and the incoming power
connections inside the machine. This circuit must
be safely sized to handle the full-load current
that may be drawn from the machine for an
extended period of time.
In the event of certain types of malfunctions or
breakdowns, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current—in order to reduce
the risk of electric shock.
For your own safety and protection of property,
consult a qualified electrician if you are unsure
about wiring practices or electrical codes in
your area.
Note: The circuit requirements listed in this
manual apply to a dedicated circuit—where only
one machine will be running at a time. If this
machine will be connected to a shared circuit
where multiple machines will be running at
the same time, consult a qualified electrician to
ensure that the circuit is properly sized for safe
operation.

Extension Cords
Serious injury could occur if you connect
the machine to power before completing the
setup process. DO NOT connect to power until
instructed later in this manual.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
wire can result in a risk of electric shock. The
wire with green insulation (with or without
yellow stripes) is the equipment-grounding wire.
If repair or replacement of the power cord or
plug is necessary, do not connect the equipmentgrounding wire to a live (current carrying)
terminal.
Check with a qualified electrician or service
personnel if you do not understand these
grounding requirements, or if you are in doubt
about whether the tool is properly grounded.
We do not recommend using an extension cord
with this machine. If you must use one, only
use it if absolutely necessary and only on a
temporary basis.
Extension cords cause voltage drop, which may
damage electrical components and shorten motor
life. Voltage drop increases as the extension cord
size gets longer and the gauge size gets smaller
(higher gauge numbers indicate smaller sizes).
Any extension cord used with this machine
must contain a ground wire, match the required
plug and receptacle listed in the Circuit
Requirements for the applicable voltage, and
meet the following requirements:
Minimum Gauge Size.............................16 AWG
Maximum Length (Shorter is Better).....50 ft.
If you ever notice that a cord or plug is
damaged or worn, disconnect it from power, and
immediately replace it with a new one.

Cleaning & Protecting
The unpainted surfaces are coated at the factory
with a heavy-duty rust preventative that
prevents corrosion during shipment and storage.
The benefit of this rust preventative is that it
works very well. The downside is that it can be
time-consuming to thoroughly remove.
Be patient and do a careful job when cleaning
and removing the rust preventative. The time
you spend doing this will reward you with
smooth-sliding parts and a better appreciation
for the proper care of the unpainted surfaces.
Although there are many ways to successfully
remove the rust preventative, we have cleaned
thousands of machines and found the following
process to be the best balance between efficiency
and minimized exposure to toxic fumes or
chemicals.
Before cleaning, gather the following:
•

toxic if inhaled. Minimize
your risk by only using
these products in a well
ventilated area.
Avoid chlorine-based solvents, such as

OPERATION
Operation Overview
To complete a typical operation, the operator
does the following:
The purpose of this overview is to provide
the novice machine operator with a basic
understanding of how the machine is used during
operation, so they can more easily understand
the controls discussed later in this manual.
1. Examines the workpiece to make sure it is
suitable for cutting.
Note: Due to the generic nature of this overview,
it is not intended to be an instructional guide
for performing actual machine operations.
To learn more about specific operations and
machining techniques, seek training from people
experienced with this type of machine, and do
additional research outside of this manual by
reading "how-to" books, trade magazines, or
websites.
2. Checks/adjusts the V-belt position on the
pulleys to ensure the correct cutting speed
for the workpiece.
3. Raises the head, then closes the downfeed
valve.
4. Adjusts the vise angle for the operation, then
securely clamps the workpiece in the vise.
5. Lowers the saw bow close to the workpiece,
then adjusts the guide post to within 1" of
the workpiece, and verifies that the blade is
properly tensioned.
To reduce the risk of
serious injury when using
this machine, read and
understand this entire
manual before beginning
any operations.
6. Adjusts the guide post so the opening
between the two blade guides is
approximately 1⁄4" larger than the width of
the workpiece.
Loose hair, clothing, or
jewelry could get caught
in machinery and cause
serious personal injury.
Keep these items away
from moving parts at all
times to reduce this risk.
8. Puts on safety glasses.
During operation, small
metal chips may become
airborne, leading to serious
eye injury. Wear safety
glasses to reduce this risk.
7. Makes sure the workpiece and bandsaw are
stable and that there are no obstructions in
the way of the cut.
9. Starts the bandsaw and waits for the blade
to reach full speed.
10. Opens the downfeed valve to lower the head
and blade into the workpiece, then allows
the bandsaw to complete the cut.
11. Once the bandsaw has stopped, raises the
head, and removes the workpieces.

Blade Selection
Selecting the right blade for the cut requires a
knowledge of various blade characteristics. This
section breaks down blade characteristics to help
the reader make an informed decision about
what blade to use for a given operation.
Blade Terminology
E. Tooth Rake: The angle of the tooth face
from a line perpendicular to the length of the
blade.
F. Gullet Depth: The distance from the tooth
tip to the bottom of the curved area (gullet).
G. Tooth Pitch: The distance between tooth
tips.
H. Blade Back: The distance between the
bottom of the gullet and the back edge of the
blade.

Figure 22. Bandsaw blade terminology.
A. Kerf: The width of the cut made during
operation.
B. Tooth Set: The distance each tooth is bent
left or right from the blade.
C. Gauge: The thickness of the blade.
D. Blade Width: The widest point of the blade
measured from the tip of the tooth to the
back edge of the blade.
Measured by the blade circumference, blade
lengths are usually unique to the brand of your
bandsaw and the distance between the wheels.
Model
Blade Length
SB1017..............................................................641⁄2"
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—generally
the wider the blade, the straighter it will cut.
Model
Blade Width
SB1017..................................................................1⁄2"
Curve Cutting: Curve cutting can only be
performed while the machine is in the vertical
position. See Vertical Operation on Page 30
for more information on vertical cutting. The
smallest radius curve that can accurately be cut
with a 1⁄2" blade width is approximately 2 1⁄2".

Alternate: An all-purpose arrangement of
bending the teeth evenly left and right of the
blade. Generally used for milder metals.
Wavy: Generally three or more teeth in a group
that are bent one way, followed by a non-set
tooth, and then a group bent the other way.
Recommended for straight cuts in thin metals or
thin-wall tubing.
Raker: Three teeth in a recurring group—one
bent left, next one bent right, and then a nonset tooth. The raker set is ideal for most contour
cuts.
Tooth Type
The most common tooth types are described
below and illustrated in Figure 24.
Standard or Raker: Equally spaced teeth set at
a "0" rake angle. Recommended for all purpose
use.

Variable Pitch with Positive Rake: Varying
gullet depth and tooth spacing, a positive rake
angle, better chip formation, and aggressive
cutting.
Hook or Claw: Wide gullets (round or flat),
equally spaced teeth, positive rake angle, and
fast cut with good surface finish.

Blade Pitch (TPI)
2. Refer to the "Material Width/Diameter"
row of the blade selection chart in Figure
25, and read across to find the workpiece
thickness you need to cut.
The chart below is a basic starting point for
choosing teeth per inch (TPI) for variable pitch
blades and standard raker set bi-metal blades/
HSS blades. However, for exact specifications
of bandsaw blades that are correct for your
operation, contact the blade manufacturer.
3. Refer to the "Material Shapes" row and find
the shape of 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.
To select the correct blade pitch:
1. Measure the material thickness. This
measurement is the distance from where
each tooth enters the workpiece to where it
exits the workpiece.

Blade Tension
Blade Breakage
Proper tension is essential to avoid vibration,
twist, or`slippage on the wheels. A correctly
tensioned blade provides long life, straight cuts,
and efficient cutting times.
Many conditions may cause a bandsaw blade to
break. Some of these conditions are unavoidable
and are the natural result of the stresses to
which bandsaw blades are subjected. Other
causes of blade breakage are avoidable.
The three major signs of incorrect tension are:
1) The blade stalls in the cut and slips on the
wheels, 2) the blade frequently breaks, and 3) the
cuts are not straight.
The most common causes of avoidable blade
breakage are:
•
Faulty alignment or adjustment of the blade
guides.
1. Make sure the blade is tracking properly
(refer to Blade Tracking on Page 35).
•
Forcing or twisting a wide blade around a
tight radius.
2. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
•
Feeding the workpiece too fast.
3. Loosen and slide the blade guide as far out
as it will go, then tighten it down again.
•
Dull or damaged teeth.
•
Over-tensioned blade.
•
Top blade guide assembly set too high above
the workpiece. Adjust the top blade guide
assembly so that there is approximately 1⁄4"
between the bottom of the assembly and the
workpiece. Understand that with smaller
workpieces, this may not be possible. In
these cases, simply adjust the blade guide as
far down as possible.
•
Using a blade with a lumpy or improperly
finished braze or weld.
•
Continuously running the bandsaw when not
in use.
•
Leaving the blade tensioned when not in use.
•
Using the wrong blade pitch (TPI) for the
workpiece thickness. The general rule of
thumb is to have no fewer than three teeth
in contact with the workpiece when cutting.
To tension the blade on the bandsaw:
4. Turn the tension knob in Figure 29
clockwise to tighten the blade or clockwise to
loosen the blade.
!

Blade Care & Break-In Blade Speed
Blade Care
To prolong blade life, always use a blade with
the proper width, set, type, and pitch for each
application. Maintain the appropriate feed
rate, feed pressure, and blade speed. Keep your
blades clean, since dirty or gummed up blades
pass through the cutting material with much
more resistance than clean blades, causing
unnecessary heat.
Blade Break-In
The tips and edges of a new blade are extremely
sharp. Cutting at too fast of a feed rate or too
slow of a blade speed can fracture these tips and
edges, causing the blade to quickly become dull.
Properly breaking-in a blade allows these sharp
edges to wear without fracturing, thus keeping
the blade sharp longer.
Use the Chip Inspection Chart on Page 27
to ensure that the optimal blade speed and feed
rate are being used.
To properly break-in a new blade:
1. Choose the correct speed for the blade and
material of the operation.
The bandsaw is capable of operating at 80,
120, or 200 FPM (Feet Per Minute). The speed
can easily be adjusted by changing the V-belt
placement. Figure 30 shows the pulley positions
required for each speed. The charts on the
following page provide guidelines for determining
which speed to use for a cutting operation

tension bolt shown in Figure 31 to allow the
motor to pivot.

2. Reduce the feed pressure by half for the first
50–100 in2 of material cut.
3. To avoid twisting the blade when cutting,
wait until the total width of the blade is in
the cut before adjusting the feed pressure.

Operation Tips
The following tips will help you safely and
effectively operate your bandsaw and help you
get the maximum life out of your saw blades.
Horizontal Cutting
Figure 44. Leveling vertical setup.
Vertical
Stop Bolt
•
Use the work stop to quickly and accurately
cut multiple pieces of stock to the same
length.
•
Clamp the material firmly in the vise jaws to
ensure a straight cut through the material.
•
Let the blade reach full speed before
engaging the workpiece. Never start a cut
with the blade in contact with the workpiece.
•
Pay attention to the chips produced by the
cutting operation and use their appearance
to fine-tune the blade speed, feed speed,
and pressure (refer to the Chip Inspection
Chart on Page 27).
•
Wait until the blade has completely stopped
before removing the workpiece from the vise,
and avoid touching the cut end—it could be
very hot!
Vertical Cutting
•
Do not cut workpieces that cannot be
properly supported or stabilized without
a vise in the vertical position. Examples
are chains, cables, round or oblong-shaped
workpieces, workpieces with internal or
built-in moving or rotating parts, etc.
•
Make sure that the vertical table assembly is
securely fastened to the bandsaw frame so it
will adequately support the workpiece.
•
Adjusts the guide post so the opening
between the two blade guides is
approximately 1⁄4" larger than the width of
the workpiece.

4. Fill the gearbox with the recommended gear
oil so components above the normal oil level
do not develop rust. (Make sure to put a tag
on the controls as a reminder for the recommissioning process to adjust the gear oil
level before starting the machine.)
If the machine will be out of service for only
a short period of time, start the machine
once a week and run all gear-driven
components for a few minutes. This will
put a fresh coat of gear oil on the gearing
components inside the gearbox.
5. Completely cover the machine with a tarp
or plastic sheet that will keep out dust and
resist liquid or moisture. If machine will be
stored in/near direct sunlight, use a cover
that will block the sun's rays.

To adjust the blade guide bearings:
1. DISCONNECT BANDSAW FROM POWER!
2. Position the saw in the vertical position (see
Vertical Operation on Page 30 for more
information).
3. Loosen the hex nuts that secure the eccentric
bushings attached to the guide bearings.
4. Adjust the eccentric bushing as necessary so
that it pushes against the blade just enough
to hold the blade flat between the bearings.
Note: Since the bearings twist the blade
into position, it is acceptable if there is
0.001"–0.002" gap between the blade and
the front or back of the bearing. Just make
sure not to squeeze the blade too tightly with
the bearings. After the guide bearings are
set, you should be able to rotate the guide
bearings (although they will be stiff) with
your fingers.
5. Adjust the backing bearing in the same
manner, but leave a gap between 0.002–
0.003" from the back of the blade.
