Restoring an old Kity 612 Band Saw (in German)
Final video in a series where youtuber Der Stöpselkopf restores a Kity 612.
With subtitles, so also interesting for non-German speaking viewers.
Kity 612 in action
Short video showing Kity 612 cutting action. Not very useful, but one of the few videos out there and shows what this machine is capable of.

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.
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!
Are there any parallel and angele supports out there as spare parts? i would like to have 1 of those for my Kity 612
