Bandsaw Progress (1/1)

Dear All,
Here is how my Wadkin Bursgreen C5 20" bandsaw is coming along. It is over at my neighbour/buddy Mikes place right now as he is a skilled painter and just happens to have a full paint set-up in his garage.

It is in grey primer right now and will get its first coat of Vista Green tomorrow.
I am very eager to get it back together and fire it up, Seventeen inches of resaw, Carter precision guides and three horsepower, I cannot wait to fire it up and do some serious resawing. Weighs 600+ pounds all dressed.
Thanks,
David.

Vista Green huh? Trying to pass that POS off as a vintage Powermatic or something? Looks like you should be able to crank up your pukey duck production to 'high' when you get that beast done. Here's my latest: http://musial.ws/red_star_radial_arm_saw.htm I finally got the table done and need to post some "after" pictures this weekend.

Wes,

You can still buy these saws new from the UK, they are around $8000 CND ($6000 USD), I paid $200 CDN ($150 USD) for this one.
Thanks,
David.

Dear Steve,

I am using M-22 paint, whatever the hell that is. My paint pro said that is what I should use. It only comes in 15 industrial colours, and this was the only green. Funny enough, my buddy also does ww'ing and called me at work today saying I should get some "General" stickers for it as Vista Green is a dead ringer for General green.
Geez, I only hope to rise too pukey duck maker some day....
Pretty looking radio alarm saw you have there. I have passed on a few because I simply don't have the space for one. I opted for one of those fancy smanchy Hitachi laser powered SCMS's. As the guy who can never have too many tools, I picked up two more routers this week. One of those snazzy PC 7/8 HP fixed base jobbies in the retro polished aluminium and a PC 7519 3.25HP 5 speed with a Hurst shifter. I bought the biggen one without a base to go in my new Jessem Excel table top. I have the pleasure of performing next weekend at Canada's largest ww'ing show in Woodstock, Ontario. I will be demo'ing "How to *uck up rasied panel doors" w/CMT, Jessem and PC as sponsors. Have you seen the new PC retro 4.5" worm drive circ saw? One of those also followed me home. Gawd, I have to stop working at a tool store...
I am currently gutting my parents kitchen and building them a new one. It is the least I could do for them putting up with me all these years...
Take care,
David.
