Vintage Eastern Industries 20" bandsaw
After years of looking and watching, along comes a complete, running example. Largely a cosmetic restoration, it will be stripped of its house paint, all bearings changed, and a new table welded up. The induction/repulsion motor will be serviced and continue to run at 220v.
To be set up to resaw for ribs and planking, it has over 10" capacity
New cruiser build
Time to pull a new one from the form, spruce rails and roasted birdseye maple decks, seats and thwarts.
