Wilmac 2-Speed Bandaw
Manufactured in Stirling, Scotland - probably during the 1950s - the Wilmac 2-speed backsaw might have been a compact unit but was of a decently robust build. Not only was the tilting 11.75-inch by 11.875-inch table in cast iron, but also the two-part, bolted-together swan-neck main frame that gave useful throat of 11.5 inches. With two speeds, via double-step V-pulleys, of 265 and 1750 feet per minute, the bandsaw could tackle both wood and, with the right blade and care, metal as well - the maximum depth of cut in wood being 6.5 inches.
While most of these saws are found in a single-speed form and for bench mounting, this example appears to be on a factory-made stand. This example appears to have survived in remarkably fine original condition, even to its undamaged plastic handles..
