    I Googled "Pehaka saw" and did learn they are (were?) made in Germany. The ones I found are large industrial saws. I'm betting they are very good quality but support and parts may be tough to get in the USA.

    Do you know what voltage your's is uhohjim?

    Jim , I knew they were made in Germany...after sitting for many years everything still for the most part moves freely and is in good shape...I know its a three phase saw and was considering a rotary phase convertor.....or maybe a single phase motor swap..the saw is missing some small things like the blade guide/stablilzer coming from the upper adjustable blade fence?guide?....Not sure exactly what it would be called..but normally there would be two roller bearings there to stabilize blade where it feeds from the top of the saw. The saw has a approx. 16 inch throat and full speed adjustment so I'mthinking I'll have to put a little time into it because it sure seems heavy duty I'll post some pics of it so maybe someone might have some ideas for parts Thanx Jim

    Maybe you can adapt parts from other brands if you don't need anything major that's specific to that saw. Post a pic if you get a chance.

    Sorry Jim, don't know squat about the saw, or where to find parts.
    There are a ton of Pehaka Saws within Google like you mentioned,
    Any clue at all on a model(I know, dumb question, but had to ask).
    Was trying to work backwards by finding a pic. of another just like it,
    didn't happen.
    This might just help you to get a little further though,
    Google "Systran",(a language translation company), and download a free
    trial of their software(it's like 30 days or so).
    You can then translate anything to English, and English to anything,
    which will really help IF you find parts or manuals only in Germany.
    At nothing else, it's another option for you,hope you win.
