I have been fortunate enough to find 1978/79/80 adverts in local woodworking magazines showing some Tauco Manufacturing products.
The jointers and tilting arbor saws are close copies of Rockwell machines.
The 330mm thicknesser (planer) is a new design whilst the Tauco bandsaw is quoted as being a Model 28-380.
The Springbok emblem on the right was part of a “Buy South African” campaign of the time.
