Metal Cutting Portable Bandsaw
 
:(I have an old Ingersoll Rand (IR) portable metal cutting bandsaw model 8099. I would like to acquire a parts/user/service manual for this saw or better yet a URL web link to such document/manual. I contacted IR concerning this model and they replied that this saw was offered under the Miller Falls Group which IR sold off some 30 years ago, they do not have any documentation, nor can I find anything under the Miller Falls label. I would appreciate any help.

We don't know your location but I would suggest finding a "DeWalt/Milwaulkee/B&D/Porter-Cable/ect." repair center near you. There is one in Norcross, GA. I send certain tools to and they have yet failed to repair these tools.

Patso, That is good advice from Thurman. I had a similar problem recently, not with a tool, but with getting a problem fixed on a 50 year old furnace blower motor. A friend told me of a really old time electric motor repair place 25 miles away in Hollywood.
They did not have a Web Site so I just took my motor in and was amazed that in their Store was a whole world of old time skill, knowledge, and parts. The whole place looked like a 1940 repair shop movie set. They knew all about my problem and fixed it quickly and very reasonably.

Edit: List your location on your profile and you will get more tips on sources near you.
