Hello, all! New guy here, I generally hang out at owwm.org. What brings me here today is Steve Clardy and his old bandsaw.
Many of you probably already know the story of Steve's shop, the misfortune therein, and his new bandsaw. What you may not know is what happened to his old saw once his new toy was up and running.
You probably also know that Jeff Horton is an old machine junkie like me. He also spends some time at owwm.org. Steve asked Jeff to help him ID the saw, so Jeff posted it to owwm.org. We all figured out that it's a Silver 20" bandsaw.
Steve and I worked out the details and I went out yesterday to pick up the saw. If you think that Steve is a good guy here on-line, you should meet him in person. We spent 3 solid hours talking about woodworking, machines, hand tools, and old Fords. A great time. But, eventually, I had to head home. It's a four hour drive one-way, so there was a lot of behind-the-wheel time.
Today I unloaded it and quickly put it back together in order to store it.
Here is the entry on owwm.com
It'll be awhile until I can get to it, but it should make a nice saw.
Edit: Forgot to link to the before pictures.
Thanks again, Steve!
