    nice work!!, ive rebuilt quite a few old beaver and rockwell/beaver tools including a 3200 tablesaw like yours
    the 2300 bandsaw is quite rare compared to my 3300, yours looks great
    the 1900 sander is much newer, actually a rockwell design from the early 60's, i have one as well
    im still looking for a drill press!!
    for your information, the oldest tools had "callander foundry" on the oval beaver tag like my avatar, after 54 the tag read "rockwell manufacturing"
    the base of the tablesaw and the main body of the bandsaw are a large aluminum casting, quite an accomplishment in the late 40's
    pictures of mine are in my gallery(click on "view photos by stevem" along with numerous threads on the rebuilds
    nice old machinery, well worth the time and effort
    my shop is a beaver lodge

    thanks Steve, I also have the 3300 in the shop on the old cast legs c/w a fence. My wife questioned why I need two bandsaws in the shop but hey, who doesn't?

    Steve - have you considered getting professional help (said the guy with more planes and spokeshaves than anyone really needs)?

    Cheers

    yes its sad isnt it!!
    most of my old stuff was destined for being scrapped and wasnt operating when rescued
    how anybody could scrap an old beaver 3800 jointer defeats me
