I typically watch restaurant auctions to find my meat processing equipment for dirt cheap, but one day I decided to look through one labelled as “Building Materials, Doors, and Hardware” because there were no restaurant auctions in the area. I sure glad I did since I stumbled upon this Wellsaw 400 and won it for a whopping $13.00!
She needs a little cleaning and greasing, but does run and the poor thing was labelled as “antique” so hopefully it doesn’t get half way though the first animal and become just that.
Couple of Questions:
- Will the parts on waltonsinc.com for the “400 Wellsaw” match this one? Here is the 8 inch blade online https://www.waltonsinc.com/8-in-regular-duty-wellsaw-blade
- Are the 8 inch and 16 inch supports interchangeable for the same motor? It came with the 8 inch, but if it continues to work I may go to the 16 inch.
- When removing the blade do you just loosen the locking key with the allen wrench and then pull straight out? It is a bit stiff due to age, but I didn’t want to keep yanking if the was a proper way to do it.
Holden Nyhus Huge score! We stock some parts for it but have to special order most. The blade is the same for the 400 as it is for the 404, but I don’t believe you can use the Heavy Duty blade, just the regular. The support is here https://www.waltonsinc.com/model-400-16-in-wellsaw-blade-support We used to have the 400 well saw parts breakdown https://www.waltonsinc.com/media/pdf/products/saws/400-wellsaw.pdf but it seems to go nowhere now. I’ll see if I can fix that. In the end you’re almost certainly going to have to call in (800-835-2832 or email at [email protected]) for those parts as they will mostly be special order. If I can’t fix that link I will upload the PDF image to this post
Nope, couldn’t get it to work on the product page, lets see if this works Jarvis Wellsaw Model 400 Manual and Parts.pdf
Cool, looks like that worked, so take a look through there and let our customer service know what parts you need but seriously, for $13 even if the motor is shot the casing, blade and support are worth a lot more than that so you will be out ahead!

Jonathon Thanks for posting that!
It looks like the blade does slide directly into the support, but it calls for a rubber mallet to drive it in. This may be a fun one to get off!
Holden Nyhus Lol yeah that could be hard, just be patient and try not to break anything. I believe the biggest issues with those is often the grease that goes into the main body, it has a tendency to harden up when it is not in use very often and from the looks of that one I am guessing it has been a while since it saw regular use?
