Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw cast iron frame vintage antique parts

Looking for an old / antique / vintage band saw. It has to be fairly large (ie: like 18 inch wheel or larger). The project is to make an English Wheel for body / metal shaping work. So strong casting with a large mouth. Preferably with some interesting markings on it etc. I am in Edmonton Canada. Would be willing to provide the wheels and all other parts not used to finder / forum members etc…

w thx

Skelly – you do not say what part of the country you are in,
so something of that size and weight would be ginormous to ship.

there are similar vintage tools being liquidated in Orlando, Florida this week.

-- there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks. --
