Welcome
You can download a free manual if it is here
http://www.sharkbandsawblades.co.uk/sta ... books.html
Although I've seen some other old saws rebadged Startrte like the old Centauro CO600.
You might need to post a picture if you cannot find your machine.
I wouldn't be too pushed to find a manual if you cant find one though.

Hello again
You need to have at least three posts to be able to post a picture of it.
What's the nearest looking saw to it that you can find on google?

Is it like the top one? If so I don't think they had a particular model number. There was a heavier-duty model called a "Volant".

Can we have a clue?
Old and cast iron...
Is it big or small, all cast or just the table
Modern bearings on the wheels, or poured lead babbitt bearings?

We'd love to see some ol arn
Especially bandsaws!
