We had an old small Wellsaw band saw years ago that ended up in the scrap pile when I was still a kid. I don't remember what model it was, just that it was smaller, and it had a spur gear driven drum (because the teeth on the drum were wore out, sending the saw to the pile). My dad saved some pieces off of the saw and they've been on the shelf ever since. We'll never use them though, so if someone recognizes the stuff and can put a model on the saw, or a price on the parts, we can keep these last pieces off of the pile as well. I remember it being a small saw, with aprox. 12" diameter drums. It had a hydraulic assist, but I'm not sure if it was original or added on.

We have the vise jaws and clamping screw, the blade guide arm assemblies (made of aluminum), the material stop, and a vertical saw attachment table (which I think was kinda interesting). If there are any dimensions that would help identify the parts, or maybe see if they will fit other saws, let me know and I'll post them.

What are you looking to do with the parts? I have an old Wells saw that I still use that has identical looking features. The hydraulic assist would have been original, as mine has it as well. The threaded rod on vise wheel should be a buttress thread.
The only problem I have on mine, is the half nut that the Buttress tread tightens against (bronze) is worn and the threads jump over one another if I'm not careful.
When I first got mine (used) years ago, I was able to get a parts list and manual of sorts from Wells, who was still in business at the time. Not sure if they're still around or not.
I can send or post pictures of my saw if you wish.

I'm looking for a new home for these parts, so if you think they'll work on yours, message me your address and I'll see what shipping will be. The vise half-nut looks pretty worn however, but It may still have some life in it.
