Interesting to see Tyme and Multico parts on the site, is there some relationship with Inca and these other companies?Dust ports are available as spare parts..,
you do know that the only blade that is supposed to run in the Center of the wheel is the fretsaw blade?I have no idea how it did the job as the blade guides were all to cock and the blade itself was way off centre on the wheels.
The Snodgrass method is excellent for the majority of home workshop bandsaws as they almost exclusively have crowned tyres. The significant exception is the Inca as you can see from its instructions.Hi Sometime',
There are many differing opinions based upon whether you have a large bandsaw with wide wheels or a small hobbyists where a 1/2" blade covers the entire tire. Or if you have crown wheels or flat.
I have always followed the Snodgrass method which a lot of people seem to respect.
I am however always willing to learn thanks for your response.
Sent you a PM.Hi Torx,
This all looks more and more amazing with each post. Can't wait to see it in all its shiny new glory.
Can I ask when you are down this way so that I can keep that time free in my diary.
I am very grateful for your remarkable attention to detail in restoring this machine.
I’m confident that my saw is complete and in original condition, so if you need any parts photographed I can do that for you.It’s going back together now. I’ve heard a couple of mentions of the table tilt being stiff and awkward, so when this went back together I checked carefully for any signs of the aluminium castings galling. Sure enough it was dragging a bit so took it apart and scraped out any lumps and bumps and gave it all a polish. Fairly smooth now but I think some dry lube will help.
I was puzzled that only one blade guide has a locking nut, and the only exploded parts diagram I could find is horribly grainy. Found this excellent thread while looking for information Inca bandsaw
which was good to read through. Eventually decided there should be one there so I’ve either lost it or it’s gone missing in the past. Made a new one on the lathe. Couldn’t find the right knurling pattern though I know I’ve got one somewhere, but hardly important.

Will have to get the blacking kit out again now, but I’ve got a few other bits to do anyway.
