  1. Sam, If you go to and look under vintage machines, you will find a thread about the complete rebuild of my Oliver 217. Might be helpful, or at least fun. Good luck. PS- the Oliver 116 and the gray y20 are my saws as well. Dave

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your response on the 24" Powermatic band saw. Yesterday, I found a Davis and Wells 20" band saw that was in good shape for rebuilding. What you said about quality of components was a concern to me. So I purchased the Davis and Wells for $500. I don't know if that is a good price or not, but I was happy with it. I am going to do a complete rebuild. I also have two Dewalt radial arm saws, one 10" and one 14", that I am going to rebuild.

    Thanks again, Sam
