Well it’s an old bandsaw…a sixties Coronet Imp built in Derby…

so I tested it by making a box…it sucks, I know but it took no time at all and it’s made from a left over bit of pressure treated fence post.

I had fun. Never owned a band saw before…cost me fifty quid.
(yes that clamp is holding my window shut and those are potatoes on the sill, not alien eggs.)

I am sorry Sir, but that has to be the ugliest band saw I have seen. Are you sure it was not built in France! :)
Good luck with it.

HA! I know. But really at the price I couldn’t resist. It is an ugly old beast. I can barely lift it. It looks like it should be steam powered.

Congratulation!

I never seen one like it before. I bet it won’t vibrate like these 14" bandsaw they offer now.

I was wondering what was on the window sill.

Nice three wheel bansaw. I have heard that some work extreemly well. It really depends on how you tune it up and particularly what blade you use. I use blades from Fuffsaw. Ian makes blades for most bandsaws and is a very helpful guy if you can chat with him.

I has a two wheel small bandsaw last January, but have changed for a larfer one now and it works well.
