Racine Saw

Re: Racine saw

Ask away, I have several. They are a fantastic saw. When that West Bend 820 is dialed in it cuts like nobody's business! How old of a Racine do you have? Early ones had an aluminum fuel tank, then went to a fiberglass tank. Early models were direct drive, later ones had a centrifugal clutch. Modern Racine's have a Husqvarna engine.

Well the only tags on it are from Air Forse inventory and it looks like it was refurbished it 1966 by a company from Georgia. It has two empty spaces in the bottom and in the square one on the right I can see a belt hanging.

Re: Racine saw

I did not see that this was in the machine tool section. I have no practical experience with their power hack saws. Their rail saws however are second to none.

Bob, here is a link to Keith Ruckers webpage.

If you go to the Manufacturers Index page you will find Racine Tool & Machine Co. There is quite a bit of info there on Racine saws.

Also look at Racine Hydraulics and Machinery Inc.

I had a Racine power hack saw. It ran well and worked great, but the capacity of it was just a little too small for my needs so I sold it. I had a manual for it. I did not get the manual at Keith's site though. I think I found it on the internet somewhere.

Here is a link to a good thread on this site regarding Racine saws.
