Comments:
This bandsaw was purchased from a second hand outlet in Pietermaritzburg kwa Zulu Natal South Africa. It is fitted with various parts locally made such as the stand, the motor, the motor pulley so as to comply with the "local content regulations" that had to be complied with by importers of machinery. A certain percentage had to be locally made. The bandsaw when bought was not in the best of shape and poorly maintained. It was completely stripped and refurbished.
