I had a trip to the Essex Country Show at Barleylands Farm Centre, the main reason for going was to see Jeremy my clog maker, but while getting my £9's worth of wandering about I found this:

Now I know that this was not going to be to Wadkin standard, but for a bit of 1916 kit it did lots of things. :D
The chap was keen to start the 1 1/2 HP petrol engine, it took 3 swings. 8)

It was a good job the HSE were not around as the belt was slipped on once the engine was purring sweetly. 8-[

The whole setup was very quiet, even with what looked like the chains from 3 bikes under the table.

Sad to say my eye was drawn to the engine and not the saw :shock:

I think it is a Lister

WWAAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!! CCCCOOOOOLLLLLLL !!!
Love that old engine and tool stuff.. We have shows around here occasionally I think it would be neat to have a shop full of all those old tools and line belts snapping and running. Amish still have that

Well here are some more pictures, for Slim. :D

Note this would help to solve the unemployment problems, a four man team are require to rip logs. :shock:

The division of labour looks about right. (hammer)

This chap had everything under control, hot drinks were brought to him on a regular time table. =D>
The engine is a half size model, built in the USA!

Up the proverbial creek
Looks not dissimilar to the one advertised in the 1935 Buck & Hickman catalogue, which appears to be a "Zyto" - Tyzack's brand name for their machines. For you're amusement, the sales pitch:
High Speed Treadle Saw Bench

This is a superior Machine of rugged construction, having an Extra Heavy Frame, Flywheel and Treadle. Self-aligning Ball Bearings and extension for Sand Disc or Pulley for power drive.

Supplied complete with 14 in. diam. Saw, Canting Fence with fine adjustment, swivelling Mitre Fence and Dead-length Gauge.

Price £13 10 0
Chuck, if required, 7/6 extra
Personally I wouldn't fancy treadling a 14" saw blade... :shock: They made 'em to last though, didn't they? Nearly 90 years and still working - and with a guard!

Cheers, Alf

It was the moulding head that I thought would be hard work with the treadle. ](*,)
