Anyone out there know where to get parts?

Mine has the table trunnions that are broken (underneath),the ones that you can loosen and tilt the table.....they do look a little cheesy made out of pot metal,but is something available?

I know this is an old saw(1983)

Thanks to any responses.

I have the entire manual for the Buffalo 14" bandsaw including parts list. I too need the trunion brackets (broken pot metal) Any sources available? If you still need a copy of the manual, I can scan it and send it or post it (14 pgs.)

I found a place on the internet called The Saw Center that sells trunions, but not sure if it would work- also a bit pricey ($34.50 a pair) Interested to hear anything more.

This picture seems to be what I have in the way of an old bandsaw. Do you know the length of the blade, for when I need to replace it?

Did you ever get a copy of the manual for this bandsaw? If so, I would be interested in knowing the blade length, in order to replace my own blade, since I have the saw in the picture. Thanks.

I've had good luck with replacement parts for my BP-VBS-14 bandsaw by ordering from Harbor Freight tools -much cheaper than other sources! If you click on one of their bandsaws, download the pdf for their 14" model, and then find the part you need from the exploded diagrams. I replaced the trunions, the blade guides and the upper wheel bracket that you use to tighten the blade tension. I did have to file it a bit to make it fit.

I requested a copy of the manual from each person that had previously asked for a copy and have heard nothing in a week and a half, but I'll certainly send you one if I get a copy. Karen

Could you send a copy of the manual to One of the pot metal parts on my band saw just snapped and I really hope to replace it. It's the part that allows you to adjust the blade tracking on the upper wheel.

I didn't get any info from anyone after I asked each for a copy of the manual. My Dad broke a white metal part similar to the part you described.

Since this is an inexpensive foreign made bandsaw from the 70's, we were not able to find any parts, partslist or manual anywhere. Fortunately, my brother is a tool and die maker and he made a piece that worked. I suggest looking for a replacement bandsaw on Craigslist, that was going to be my next step. I was surprised how many were available that were good quality for a reasonable price. Good Luck, Karen

I have a manual and I will send you a copy if you are still in need. May I also suggest you look at this site, it is the current 14 inch model and looks like a dead ringer for the VBS-14

Let me know either way.

I am looking for a tension mechanism for the saw that is shown on the owners manual that was posted by Potiphar 06-02-2010. I have that same owners manual and saw.

lil Mario, If your part requirement matches the part as shown in the Harbor Freight & Tool 14" bandsaw manual (pdf available @ ) then you can probably use that part. Several people have indicated that they got parts for these Buffalo saws from that source and they worked, in some cases requiring some "adjustment". The saw appears to be a functionally exact replica of the old Buffalo saw (probably IS the same, made by a Chinese company)

I am having the entire blade alignment function (top & bottom) re-manufactured by a Sparks Industrial Services in the state of Washington because of the fact that all the base supports are made out of pot metal and I want something that is more functional for this tool. If you want to explore that option for your part need, contact Robb Sparks at

You all might want to contact:
Iturra Design
Jacksonville 904-642-2802
Mr. Iturra has a catalog available for the asking however he does not have a website therefore you need to break down and actually call and ask for a catalog. By the way the catalog could be described as a manual on repair and operation of bandsaws it is that complete.

I have been trying to rebuild a '83 Buffalo 41 inch bandsaw. When I search for buffalo parts I get delta parts which seem to work. I bought some 14 in bandsaw tires which were too thin but fit. So I cut "tires" out of a large inner tube and put them under the bought tires and that worked. I also bought a blade guide that came with some phenolic cool blocks that wasn't a perfect fit but worked.
NOW, I need the plastic blade guard that the back side of the blade runs through. I have seen a bunch of parts but this is never listed on any website I have looked at. ANYBODY know where I can get one?

How long is the blade?
