    Wadkin BGS10…The rarest table saw Wadkin made. Full Restoration

    The parts are all painted and we are now waiting for it to fully harden up before starting to assemble the saw. Unfortunately, a short delay is forced upon me. Doing a good deed and cutting my parents hedge I managed to get a cutter love bite. Sooooo trip to A&E and a big bandage but nothing...

    Sketchup Shop

    Are you wedded to Sketchup? There are a number of free cad platforms to choose from. I personally would choose Onshape after I reviewed what was around after Fusion 360 stopped the free full version

    Wadkin BGS10…The rarest table saw Wadkin made. Full Restoration

    Hi Miles, thanks for sharing your thread, really interesting. I’d love to see how your modification turned out. When I had one for myself as my everyday saw I tapped a couple of holes on the underside of the sliding table and fitted a wood extension that was rebated to allow it to pop up flush...

    Wadkin BGS10…The rarest table saw Wadkin made. Full Restoration

    Thanks Wallace, that’s really interesting stuff. The info is for the BGS12, the big brother of BGS10, the saw that we are restoring. The table sliding mechanism is totally different to the BGS10.

    The castings are all very good, no occlusion or voids.

    The fabricated body of the saw inevitably has a few extra surplus holes, that will have been the result of bits bolted on by different owners. These will all be welded over, ground back so that its back to a smooth pure metal surface. I’ve seen filler used, which stays in place for a short time...

    The parts are back from the shot blasters, and the next stage is to complete the preparation for paint which needs to be done very quickly. Shot blasted parts need to be painted as soon as possible after processing for the best paint adhesion. These saws have a hammered finish, that’s not the...

    If you have any literature you can share that would be really appreciated. Info on this variant of the saw is very sparse.

    Wadkin BGS10…The rarest table saw Wadkin made. Full Restoration

    Firstly I must correct a wrong! I haven’t mentioned that the machine restorations I do are not a sole project. A couple of years ago a fellow member on here Sideways was looking for a machine for a local Men’s Shed and was interested in one of my machines. Anyway, he is a fellow retired engineer...

    Well, the parts are due back from the company that does the shot blasting, so progress will continue shortly.

In fact, anything other than standard 40mm Euro Cutters Id get them made. For standard 50mm cutters and limiters its £52 including delivery. They do most blank...

    Wadkin Bursgreen Trenching Heads Question

    Having a drive pin isn’t something new. A lot of saws have them.

    Wadkin AGS knowledge required

    It could be a Wadkin AGSP, that was basically the AGS300 with a few extra bits. The saw blade can only project something like 75mm if the scorer is fitted. It’s a standard scoring blade. However, I thought, but could be wrong they were badged up as AGSP, where as yours is just AGS. A lovely saw...

    Wadkin AGS knowledge required

    That’s a Wadkin AGS250 or 300. The guts are very similar to the AGS10, never tried swapping bits between the two so can’t say they are identical. You need a set of imperial and metric Allen keys, socket set metric and WW and a set of spanner’s again metric and imperial. Just in case it’s...
