    As it happens I have just boxed one up and moved it into somewhere into my storage unit whilst we move house. Im kind of tied up for the next few days but if you have not found one by Monday give me a message and I will try dig it back out for you and check the condition etc :)

    Didn't expect this many replies! Not been on the computer for a couple of days to check but appreciate every single bit of help so far, thank you all!

    Bandsaw help

    Hi all, just hoping for abit of advice really. I have an old Walker Turner 16" bandsaw and its in pretty good working order but it could really do with a fence, some new tyres, and a bolt for the tilt mechanism to lock properly as there is no thread on the one thats on it. Basically I was...
