This intriguing design for a lathe mounted bandsaw appeared in Issues 9 and 10 of Model Engineers' Workshop (February/March 1992 and April/May 1992). Designed by Mr G Gray of Nantwich it was designed to be mounted on, and powered by, a Myford ML7 lathe, but no doubt with some modification it could be used with many other lathes of similar centre height.
Back in 1992 this design was offered for those who lacked the space for a normal bandsaw. It was the first free plan to appear over two issues - a rare move for EW in those days, but one that showed the magazine had established itself as a regular publication.
Or download the whole plan as sixteen(!) A4 pages that can be printed out and taped together.
With thanks to Nick Farr for scanning these plans.
