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 http://manuals.harborfreight.com/manuals/32000-32999/32208.pdf
I need the operation/owners manual badly as I know NOTHING about band saws and need to learn to replace the blade and such. Thank you, please send to email@example.com. Also, how does this machine work as far as performance, anyone have any good feedback about them?
