    Just picked up on this thread while googling Pehaka. Maybe a little late for comments, but here's a few that I hope may help you on your project. #1- the blade guides are DoAll style, different thickness slotted blocks (to accommodate different blade widths) with a 45 deg. bevel at the end. Not sure if they'll fit but it's sure worth a try. #2- to power the 3ph. motor you could go with a Variable Frequency Drive with a single ph. input and three ph. output. You could then use the Freq. drive to control motor speed. I used this setup on a 14" band saw and it works great. Good luck on your project, Jerry

    Thaks for the input Jerry I have a static convertor coming for the bandsaw that a neighbor of mine had lying around so I will try firing the motor,,I have been stripping the saw down slowly but surely as time allows...I've got 6 month old twins so time doesn't allow much right now lol. I will post some pics when I get it fired up Thanx again Jim

    You might contact the people at Ellis Saw and see if they can help you adapt some the parts.

    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.
