To explain - I was at a chaps place who was selling up to collect another item, and spotted the saw. I dont need a bandsaw, and was even thinking of selling my existing bandsaw, as i never use it (warco). But this one caught my eye. Its proper old cast, with almost art-deco styling. Its a lovely looking object. But.... Its missing the guard for the belts. Which is a lot of its visual appeal. I know the table etc. are not fitted in the photos, but it has that. Im now in two minds. As i say, im not a band saw chap really. Id find space for it if i thought i could get the guard, but, on an american saw, thats realistically never going to happen. And it might just irritate me for ever after that the guard is missing. Here is someone elses photo of one with the guard - I mean its not like you could easily knock one of them up! I think the one in the photo is 16", whilst the one ive been offered is 14". I know many on here would say "just buy it" but i dont have a warehouse for storage, and ive got enough projects to last 2 life times, so i need to be realistic. I know the guard is not a part of the workings, and, normally i just buy tools to use, rather than look at, but i am a fan of that sort of styling. I dont need a bandsaw, but would buy it if it was complete without doubt. But it isnt... Noone can answer the question really! Unless, of course, you happen to have a walker turner band saw guard going spare.... ! : ) Thank you!
