    Where does this DJ sit regarding age, it seems older than the 1920's according to what Wadkin had to say to the owners enquiry about getting new rubbers.

    Matty there seems to be a Darlec loose in Aus thanks to the devious disguising of another brand bandsaw as a Wadkin

    There's another one turned up in QLD and it's making a right mess of my workshop.

    Default Comparisons.

    Matty sent me some more photos of the Preston/Wadkin FF.



    Here are a few comparison pictures. In each case 36" 'Wadkin' (left), 30" Preston (right):

    Both machines with lower cabinet doors open.

    The left hand side of the frame casting looks the same for both 36" and 30" machines. The length of arm, and the position/location of the table have to be different, surely?

    Rear of both cabinets showing "Preston Woodworking Machinery..." lettering.

    FF-3.jpg 132-3.jpg

    Front of upper arms showing "Preston" lettering.

    FF-4.jpg 132-4.jpg

    Edge of table showing serial numbers.

    FF-5.jpg 132-5.jpeg

    "HR 1778 SERIAL 1089" (36") and "SERIAL 2156" (30").

    Cheers, Vann.
