I have the opportunity to purchase a single phase Startrite 351SB bandsaw from a local college. I've bring trying to establish any difference between the 351S and 352S. Can't find a definitive answer, the best I can establish is that the 352S offers 2 speed operation as opposed to single speed on the 351S.

The spare parts diagram for both machines appear to be the same

https://startrite-spares.co.uk/startrite/vertical-spares/351s-352s/

and the description of the upper assembly

https://startrite-spares.co.uk/startrite/vertical-spares/351s-352s/351s-351e-352s-upper/

I understand the B suffix designates a model for educational establishments, where there are locks etc to control access / use of the bandsaw.

Anyone aware of any other difference?

My Mens shed has just broken a 351 down as motor was toast.
There is/was? as one of them took the frame to the tip but know the base is still there and there was the rest of it ie wheels which are good and mechanisms plus table.
