  1. The switch on my handsaw has packed in, so bought a new switch, but original has a black extra wire…is this necessary and what and where?

    • I don’t own this saw, but I replaced the switch on my Inca bandsaw (which is from the same period I think). It also had an extra wire, which was earth/ground and was just attached to the machine base itself.

      Have an electrician take a look, they’ll be able to give you a definitive answer.

  2. hi
    an new here…
    considering buying a used Kity612 bandsaw… as a better alternative to the china made Einhell and Scheppach…
    what are the things to look for when i go over and check the machine ?

    • Hi Mike, a few things you could check for in a used band saw:

      A. Are all the parts there, and does it turn on?
      B. Are the tables flat?
      C. Are the wheels straight (if they are bent, you will never get a straight cut)?

      Things that don’t need to be perfect, because they can easily be replaced are the bearings for the guides (but make sure there are guides to begin with), and the sawblade itself.

      Hope this helps!

  3. Hi
