      Fifty-third update.

      Just one Wadkin. This is a little 6" surface planer (buzzer/jointer). I thought it interesting as it's only the fourth machine with a Wadkin & Co. TIN tag, making it almost certainly a product of 1936.

      It's also interesting because it's an RA that's classified RAV. We know Wadkin introduced the suffix 'A' (eg PKA, RDA.) to indicate AC powered machines, and the suffix 'D' to indicate DC powered machines (eg wallaces LPD) - dropped in the late 1940s when almost the entire production was AC powered. But what does the 'V' indicate? My own theory is, it heralds the beginning of Vee belt driven machines (as opposed to obsolete flat-belt driven machines) - but that theory has yet to be substantiated.

        Fifty-forth update.

        Fourteen Wadkins. After making such a big fuss over the rarity of Wadkin & Co. tin tags, this bunch includes another. And four PK saws.

            Hi Vann
            I have just joined the website as I have purchased a PK saw for restoration.
            The tag no. is PK 1155 test no. 34833
            I got the saw from a furniture manufacturing shop that was closing down PK here in Dunedin.
            I was impressed by your PK saw restoration.

              Hi Bob. Nice to have another fellow Kiwi with a PK join in.

              We'd love you to start a new thread (this thread is not really the place) and show us some pictures of your saw. People will want to know if you've got the double mitre fence; the overhead crown guard; extension tables; etc. I see the previous PK to yours - both by serial number and test number - is also in New Zealand. It was listed on Trademe in 2016 (I didn't record where in New Zealand).

              Can you post a photo of the Wadkin tag? As I'm hoping to do another update to this thread, and the the Wadkin PK Generations thread https://forum.canadianwoodworking.co...pk-generations in the next week or so.

              Cheers, Vann.

                      Fifty-ninth update.

                      Twelve more Wadkins, and some additional info from AMS on some early Wadkin & Co. RB 9" surface planers.
                      These take the tally to `892 machines - and I'm determined to get to 900 machines by the end of the month.

                        Sixtieth update.

                        Eleven more Wadkins.

                        At the time I wrote that I had another eleven tags awaiting sorting. Usually about a third turn out to be tags already listed, or unreadable - so i wasn't sure if I'd make the 900 figure. It turns out only one was previously listed, and since then just one more has shown up. But that's more than enough to exceed my target:

                        903 tags


                        Test number, followed by Model & Serial number, then country of residence... For the full list see post 1 on the first page of this thread.
