Hi there.Have just purchased a BeMaCo rapid saw set machine 110volt made by a company called Beaver Mfg Inglewood California USA am looking for a instruction manual for setting up this machine but because it’s rare and built in 1940 cannot find any who can help. Is there any one out there who can help a novice to set up this beautiful piece of machinery.Kind regards Mike

From that video, it appears to run along like a sewing machine, and looks self-feeding too. You could probably figure out how fast/slow it hits by playing with a few old real estate signs to practice on.

No point of having a machine you can’t use.nBut then what you bought is a beautifully made machine I would not miss buying. I would just sit and look at it with envy.
Best of luck.
