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 Lathe
The Drill Press x 2
The Band Saw
The Jointer

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.

funny i just gave away the last of my set, i could not get the sander either. but i did see one, someone overbid me on it by a hefty amount. I found the cast legs for the tablesaw difficult to source as well.
you have two drill presses? interested in parting with one?
best regards

Beautifully done David!!!!!!!!! Terri Lynne spends so much time in creating patterns and drawing details. Its a very time consuming part of the project and so very important to get all the details balanced to create a beautiful project. Your project shows that you are meticulous to detail and craftsmanship!!!!!!!!! Well done again!!!!!
