Is there a manual for an Alltrade brand 12" Variable band saw model MB-8 (1996-B-3)?

Question:

I have a model MB-8 (1996-B-3) Alltrade brand 12" Variable band saw that I cannot get the blade the local hardware store suggested to fit the thing. Do you have a manual for this model and can you send me a configuration of how the blade goes on? To make sure, what is the equivalent size blade to use?

Answer:

Hello Kevin,
Your unit is quite old as it was discontinued in 1988, after the factory went out of business and no more parts existed. As for the blade size, it was 59 inches long. While your local hardware may not be able to supply the blades, you can order those from Olson Saw. I've ordered from them on many occasions. Try to get 1/4" to 3/8" wide blades and, if you’re sawing wood, use 14 teeth per inch. Double check the model because there were two units, 1996-B-3 and 1996-B-3R. The R model had a 62 inch blade.

Thanks for asking,

Carl
