    Reviving this thread. Some interesting Euro machines from a recent trip. First, this Lobo bandsaw. If it didn’t have the badging, I would swear it was Italian. In fact, Meber if I had to guess. Yet, it apparently is US-made? Dave or you other OG’s, any thoughts?...

    Here, we have a SAC Sueri FS-305. This was interesting to me because “FS” in my experience, is always “jointer/planer”. The “S” being “spessore”, or thicknesser, in Italian. Yet, this was a straight-up jointer. See the ends of the parallelogram rods? In the legit shop style, no safety guards...

    Another machine which I pegged for Italian from across the shop but apparently is a Wadkin. Any of you OG’s know if Wadkin ever sourced out their sliders from someone else? Could also be German. Had a cold-scraped cast iron table and notice the slider bearing system, which appears to be the wheels like Altendorf...

    The wagon on that Wadkin slider is really wide to my eyes compared to my MM. Nice looking vintage machinery in that shop, Eric!

    By cold scraped I assume you're referring to the the surface left by a metal planer?

    Planed:



    Scraped



    The latter I have never seen on a woodworking machine from a factory with a scraped surface. It's however common to see planed tables on German and English made machines.

    I had always heard it referred to as cold scraped but yes, that's the finish. A lot of the earlier Italian machines have it as well. Agazzani bandsaws, for example.
