Comments:
it has been suggested by others that just before ww2, the callander foundry acquired a small woodworking machinery manufacturer. after some research, it appears that the foundry boys bought machinery in the us and imported them to Canada. this bandsaw, a tiltop tablesaw and a small woodlathe have been reported

this model bandsaw has appeared several times, both here and on the Canadian woodworking forum. it is, with some minor changes, a rebadged walker turner bn100. it has nothing in common with the post ww2 beaver bandsaws

wheels and main casting are clearly a bn100, wheel covers are different, and there are two posts supporting the upperwheel assembly rather than the single postof early w/t models

I acquired this machine locally, in decent condition. an overhaul is in progress.

I did solder up a blade from some old material and powered up the saw, runs great. not as nicely made as the post war beaver 2300 but better than many 12 inch saws

more pictures added as I completed the re build
