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.)

Congrats on the latest toy!

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.

Tor and Odin are the greatest of gods.

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.

Mine eats blades for breaky with sausage. Already lost four. Thanks for the tip.

Just seen my poor spelling. This is the guy I use, https://www.tuffsaws.co.uk/index.php?route=account/login but you probably have some experts over there. If you ask on this site, someone may pop up to lend a hand and point you in the right direction. Remember, it’s not just the blade, it’s the tuning of all of it. Good luck

Great link, thx…Their address puts them in south Wales.

Nice find. I picked mine up on a lark too. A small, old craftsman. But that coronet looks like a real serious machine. The nice thing about those 3 wheelers is the deeper cutting table.

I’ve noticed the British have an affinity for 3 wheels.
