Hi, just purchased a BBS-20 bandsaw and was wondering if anyone knows where I can get an instruction manual for it.
It seems to be in good working order, I've re-aligned everything (the blade was very off centre) but I would like to check the instructions to make sure I've got it all set up ok.

Thanks

Chris

Thanks Tony but at that price he's having a laugh, it's about half the price I paid for the bandsaw, which does seem to work ok now (especially since I put the balde in the right way round).

Chris. Lee,

I've got a BK3/BK3 Plus manual - which I think is pretty similar. I could scan it for you if nobody finds the exact thing.

But there's not much that's special to the model - a general book or guide to set-up would apply ok.

As for spares, I believe that Burgess were absorbed into Record Power. I did once get the door clips from Axminster, but it was years ago. Worth a phone call to them and ask. I expect a lot of these have been scrapped by now!

Andy

Hi Sean

Well, it says here I have a manual, and in 2009 I believe I knew where it was. I've just had a look in all the places I would expect to find it and no luck yet. If I find it, I'll scan it.

Meanwhile, tell us what you need to know - there's nothing specially unusual about it, so any usual description of how to set up a bandsaw will apply. If you are missing bits or wondering how something should look I can take pictures of mine for you, in a bit more detail than this:

I've successfully used 1/2" 3/8" and 1/4" on mine and can confirm that there is sufficient room to do so. There's no great advantage with the 1/2" compared to the 3/8" in my opinion, and the 3/8" is easier to tension. Less than 1/4" would not work with the blade guides.

Ok calling all Burgess fans:

I have scanned and shared the old manual - this should let you grab it as a pdf:
https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BxtEkh7pDKwLTEhsMHJWNEdlOGM

or this should let you view / save individual pages:

Whether it's worth having or not is another matter...

Andy, as Reg says "you're a star".
I've just bought myself a Record BK3 and the manual is going to be really handy.
Thanks
