Hi Gents

I am an amateur woodworker. I love the old machines. In South Africa woodworking machines are really expensive so I started buying old ones and restoring them. At first I refurbished a few old eastern machines and then got to know the old European machines that is definitely of a much better quality. The furniture industry in South Africa moved from solid wood to MDF board over the past three decades. A lot of the older machines became available in the market, especially Wadkin machines.

 

The bandsaw is a Rapid from Italy. The spindle shaper is a Fromia from Germany. Both were in a terrible shape when I got them. I have a shop full of old Wadkin machines waiting there turn.

Regards

Theo
