  • pulley ratios for bandsaw

    I recently acquired an old craftman 3 wheel bandsaw (62.5" blade). However it did not come with a pulley on its shaft, nor a motor. I do have a 1 hp motor to be used on it. My questions are:

    1. Is this worth reconditioning?
    2. What size pulleys should I use to make this a metal/wood cutting bandsaw?
    3. Is this motor a good choice?

    Any and all comments will be apreciated.

    Thanks, Dino
