This is my bandsaw, and generally speaking I like it very much. built like a tank, all cast iron, etc.

However, no one ever heard about it and it has ZERO footprint on the internet.

I have managed to crack my upper guide and was contemplating replacing it, but I have no idea what bandsaw had guides like this…

any input will be highly appreciated! more pictures below

Could it be produced by Duro or Powr-kraft. The saws for Duro look similar. Powercraft shows that they produced products for Logan. The model number for logan was prefixed with TLC according the the page below.

Alas, none of the models looks like mine… the weird thing is that I can’t find any model plate.
I am not sure its american at all. the logo also looks different than the famous Logan brand that makes lathes.

I have a Laguna band saw. This could be a old model of this company. Their web site is http://www.lagunatools.com/ This is just a shot in the dark but worth a try.

If you ask on owwm.org you will probably find the parts you need. Place an ad looking for parts in the BOYD section.

WayneC probably has it right. he found on another forum a reference than these were made locally in New Zealand. He is probably right… if this is the case, its probably unique design and no chance of getting replacements. i’ll check with local engineering firm if they can remake something.

Thanks!

I turned up a little history after some detective work. Logan was sold to a company called Houdaille Industries in the 60’s, as was Powermatic. So for a while those brands were under the same parent company. Eventually, Houdaille sold Powermatic to aanother company, which, in turn, sold it to Jet. Jet, Powermatic, and Performax are all now owned by WMH Tool Group.

None of that helps you find your guides, though. :-)
