So managed to finally get off the net an Emco-Star multi-purpose wood working machine.This is no toy!  There is a dedicated web site with a rather classic video. Made in Austia in the 50,s It does the following;Circular saw 8",band saw,fret saw,jig saw,belt sander,disc sander,tounge and groove moulder,spindle moulder, lathe,drilling machine,tool grinder, planer,thicknesser.buzzer.Some of them take a bit of setting up-but to change from table saw to band saw is easy and uses a clutch to engage. motor 2 speed 1500rpm or 3000  .7 of HP the castings are beautifull, good adjustments nice handles and knobs. Came with all spares like drive belts for the thicknesser, guage for setting the planer blades.spare bearing,belts blades etc.                  For a small worshop it is perfect.
I know that I will get som flak  from friends who know of my dislike of multipurpose tools like a Swiss Army knife! ( if you want a pair of scissors get a pair!) but really this is a grunty machine.
