Have not seen any but for future reference They have a parts list with diagrams on their site **LINK**

Looking at the parts diagram it looks very much like the Axminster one I have, like many makes they probabily all come from the same factory.

How thick can you cut with it. The price you paid looks like a good one especially with all the blades

Hi Sam,

www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGbZqWac0jU This is an excellent bandsaw tuning video if you have not seen it.

Tuning makes all the difference to good resuts, as well as good blades, Tuffsaw blades are very good indeed.

Hello Sam

Sorry to bother you but I have the same problem as you did when you bought your SIP 01366 bandsaw. I picked one up yesterday at an auction, almost like new condition, just without a blade or manual. I ve trawled the web for answers and your post in the forum is one of the few references to this model. Ive even emailed SIP directly but as yet without response.

I was wondering if you ever managed to trace a copy of the manual, but more importantly what length of blade does our machines require. I measured around the wheels and it seems to be around the 2500mm mark, but I'd really like to get the right size from the get go.

many thanks in advance for you help

kind regards

Rich

Most band saws put the blade length on the machine somewhere, usually with the other technical data, have a look all round and see if you can find a label somewhere.

If not contact Tuffsaws and talk to them, they will almost certainly have sold blades for this machine and will help you, also you can order some blades at the same time

Hi Sam,

how are you getting on with the bandsaw now. Have you managed to tune it up and get the right tensionon the blade. A Tuffsaw blade I hope as they are withoiut doubt the best yo can buy.
