Topic tags/keywords: band saw

I was wondering if by chance anyone recognized this type of band saw? The owner says she cant see any
markings on it. Thanks in advance. Also … sorry if this is not the correct place too ask about this.

It looks custom made to me. The upper
wheel looks like a repurposed wagon wheel
with wood spokes. There were wood spoked
band saws prior to perhaps 1920 but in
this case the way the frame is built makes it
appear to be shop made with either a
tubular steel or wood frame.
