New addition to workshop

Gentlemen,
Fetched home a small bandsaw yesterday from a mate who is moving and has no
further need of it, it was made by a company in the midlands and is made
totally of cast alluminium, no sheet metal in sight. It will make tank
making a lot easier.
I will put some pictures up this weekend.

Dont know much about Coronet, but they were made in Derby which is where i was born and still live, im a bit to young to know anything about the company other than when i was an Apprentice one of the millers had worked there. He had not very fond memorys as i recall, he was also the odd man out as he was the only one who had not worked at Rolls-Royce at some point.
Some history of the company and a photo of a bandsaw on this page

Coronet - pretty good reputation, particularly the woodturning lathes.
I use my bandsaw for woodworking rather than metal and wouldn't be without it. When I first got it I found Mark Duginske's book to be well worth the reading, particularly for how to choose which sort of blade to use in it (it's worth having a range). Coolblocks are also worth investigating as a material for new blade guides (lubricant- impregnated Tufnol-like, should be easy to retro-fit to anything).
