Hi Mark
Elektra Beckum are now marketed as Metabo and the BAS 317 is almost the same machine, painted blue.
I have found my BAS 315 great to use, just got it back in use after a motor replacement.
Enjoy

Check the blade guide castings for cracks. They are made of cheese and are a common problem area. Cheap enough to replace, and relatively easy to mod to strengthen.

Hi Mark
The 317 has some nice updates that make adjustment easier, but the saw running gear is I think identical. Find manuals and details for both models at:
http://www.metabo.co.uk/Product-catalog ... eb2.0.html
Metabo still seem to support old Elektra Beckum kit through their customer service department.

Nearest stockist for spares for you is probably in Derby, I found their online service excellent:
