I spent the best part of the day doing a line drawing of the Beaver Band Saw so that I could engrave it.
Then I designed a border and re-done the old Callander Logo. Callander went out of business in the 50’s
Then I engraved it onto a 4 1/2” x 4 3/4” piece of 3/4” Pine.
These could be cut out with a Scroll Saw around trhe border and then have a small magnet inserted into the bottom so that you could actually attach them to your equipment.. just a thought..????
The purpose of all this, was to have a display stand to set onto my refurbished Beaver 3000 series equipment.
If anyone has followed my posts recently I have blogged about catching Beaver Fever.
In the last three week period I went on a mission to find and purchase “EVERY” 3000 series (which we’re the Callander Foundry’s TOP of The Line Series) piece’s of equipment.
I traveled all over the province of Ontario Canada to finally get them all.
I could not find the sander.. it’s very rare.
I now have the following 3000 BEAVER series machines, which is everything they made minus the sander..
The Scroll Saw x 2
The Table Saw x 3
The Drill Press x 2
The Band Saw
I now have to restore all of them.. Am I retired.. or retarted… ?? Ha Ha
I plan on doing a seperate one for each machine in the future.
I’m no artist so it takes me forever to do a line drawing.
