  • Power craft

    Anyone ever hear of PowerCraft Band saws? I have the opportunity to pick up a 14" for $125.00, It does need a little work which is easy enough to do. But I need to know something about the saw, like is it anygood?

    Would that be the old Montgomery Ward brand of power tools?

      I used to purchase a LOT of "power craft" tools from M/Wards....don't know who originally made them but they held up well.......i have/had an old table saw that i mistreated for quite a while and finally gave it to my grandson about 5-6 years ago..i think he's still useing it to redo his home.......as far as a bandsaw, i DON'T remember ever seing one at our local store or i probably would have bought it too.(used to be a tool hound ) the brand was well made. doubt seriously if any of the parts places have any replacements for the tools now ...unless they were standardized into the modern brands.

          Hi ibber - LOL!

          I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

          I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

          Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

          I did a...

          Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
          My dream was to buy a TIG so that...
