Welcome to The Patriot Woodworker Mon. Great looking old saw for it's age and should restore beautifully. Looking forward to seeing the transformation.

I've seen a few similar on CL in my general area and they always seem to command a handsome price.

You're going to make @Larry Buskirk drool when he sees this post. I suspect he'll have some great suggestions & tips to help you along the journey.

Hi, and welcome to the site.:D

 

I could be wrong but the serpentine wheels don't say Parks to me. :998427331_ChinScratch:

I know I've seen those wheels, but where? :2087728586_WonderScratch: :705413577_PullingHair:

You may have part of what originally was a combination woodworking machine.??

Does it have any other markings?

 

Anyways it's a fine old machine.:2030125484_TwoThumbsUp:

I have been told that it looks like a Parks but it is not because of the wheels

Hey Mon don't be offended if I only ask about those awesome brackets you made for your fishing poles that attach to your garage door! :lol: Those are awesome!

By the way, did you still need help changing your screen name?

That is a one handsome hunk of old iron, regardless of who made it. It's going to be just gorgeous after you restore it. It'll be a great addition to your stable.

John, I have been asked about my fishing pole brackets many times so no I am not offended. The fishing pole brackets are made from scrap wood and attached in between the garage door panels. This keeps my fishing poles from getting broken plus the door still opens normally.

 

Yes I need to change "Mon" to Monkey Paws". If you can do this it would be greatly appreciated.

:998427331_ChinScratch: The more I look, the more I suspect you have the upper bandsaw frame from a combination woodworking machine. There are three different style wheels and a latter style v-belt pulley with the lower shaft ran in pillow block style bearings. 

Whatever it is, it appears to have been rather well done.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
