I have made a few more acquisitions of old iron for my shop, to the point that my wife thinks i’m nuts.
I did my woodworking powerless for five years before I started getting machines, So I understand her wonderment on why I now have 4 bandsaws. I just love the way these machines were built to last for generations, and the striking comparison to how they are built today. (I also love a deal)
So, here is some of what I got
I know what your thinking, those are not Beavers, that’s right, those are walker-turner machines. A 12’ bandsaw, a 14” bandsaw(sorry for the face down pic but I cannot pick it up by myself right now) and a walker turner 6” jointer. I also aquired a few more machines that I’ve yet to pick up as I have no room to put them as yet.
So, anyone in the area who may need a 14” steel city BS, pm me, because it needs to go to make room.
yes , I think I may have a problem with machine addiction, I blame it on the drugs.
On another note, here is what i’m doing in the shop. I usually would never post a pic of a comission, but this is a wonderful example of a client having too much input on the design process. dovetail overkill.
That is 17 hand cut dovetails on a 13” wide oak board. just monotonous, that is what happens when a client gets excited about joinery. just need to get it finished so I spend some quality time with those BS beauties.
