This is my bandsaw, and generally speaking I like it very much. built like a tank, all cast iron, etc.

However, no one ever heard about it and it has ZERO footprint on the internet.

I have managed to crack my upper guide and was contemplating replacing it, but I have no idea what bandsaw had guides like this…

any input will be highly appreciated! more pictures below

Alas, none of the models looks like mine… the weird thing is that I can't find any model plate.
I am not sure its american at all. the logo also looks different than the famous Logan brand that makes lathes.

WayneC probably has it right. he found on another forum a reference than these were made locally in New Zealand. He is probably right… if this is the case, its probably unique design and no chance of getting replacements. i'll check with local engineering firm if they can remake something.

Thanks!

I turned up a little history after some detective work. Logan was sold to a company called Houdaille Industries in the 60's, as was Powermatic. So for a while those brands were under the same parent company. Eventually, Houdaille sold Powermatic to aanother company, which, in turn, sold it to Jet. Jet, Powermatic, and Performax are all now owned by WMH Tool Group.

None of that helps you find your guides, though. :)
