hi all

me and my father have recently aquired an old bench saw which we plan on restoring back to working condition. it appears to be complete except for a few little things. also unfortunaltey someone has bent the drive shaft for the saw. when we picked it up to our suprise there was a trewhella right bench gauge with it . i would like it if anyone could help me out with any infomation on either the bench saw ( which appears to be at least partialy homade ) or the Trewhella bench gauge.

i will try to include some pictures.

regards nathan

That is what is known as a breast bench that was used in saw mills.
Some of the gear for the top may be missing.
