Hi
I don't know if it is possible to get the manual for a Toolmac bandsaw 14".
I have just purchased a second hand Toolmac model 73-533101 and it shows its a 2006 model.
Would anyone have access to a manual for that saw?
Or is there a generic manual for this as it looks very similar to others I have seen?
Thanks for any advice!

Toolmac is generic Taiwanese machinery, Grizzly normally have equivalent models and PDF manuals for download on their website. Try the G0555, G0555 The Ultimate 14" Bandsaw (http://www.grizzly.com/products/The-Ultimate-14-Bandsaw/G0555)

Did you start using your band saw already?

I am just setting it up. I have mounted it on a base with wheels as I have limited space.
It doesn't come with a fence but it seems a good saw 1HP and looks new.
It doesn't have guide bearings on the blade just plastic blocks that will eventually have to be replaced with new ones or a greasy wood.

Thanks for the help!

It's fine without the bearings. Guide blocks work well than bearings imho.
Techincally though, I think either work well as long as you maintain the saw
correctly.

I have a toolmac goes great! just replaced the blocks with bearing guide set from Carbatec it's even better for straight cuts now!

Dippy questions for chuck...you have the same bandsaw (73-533101)? And installed these CT guides Deluxe 14" Guide Set : CARBA-TEC (http://www.carbatec.com.au/deluxe-14-guide-set_c720)

Hoping to do the same thing but I can't see from the pic of the guides whether the bottom set will fit or not.
