Hi and welcome Cerith.
That is one old piece of equipment never seen one before but looks like you could mount a circular saw,router, or jigsaw upside down in the table. The fence is facing the wrong way if you can fit a circular saw.
Not much help I know

I have the very same machine which I rescued from it's journey to the local tip! Miine has had the drill mounting plate modified to take a more modern drill but is otherwise the same as yours. I don't have any manual etc on this but it will take a small circular saw blade that fits on a small shaft that goes in the drill. However, this is only suitable to cut small pieces of timber and I would not use this as I have a large bandsaw & a radial arm saw.
My father had one of these when I was a child so I was familar with it. This is a fantasticly versatile piece of kit and there is nothing on the market now to touch it. It is possible to set this machine to drill holes at virtually any angle you would possibly require and also compound angles.
Whatever you do hang on to it and play with it and I am sure that you will be surprised at it's versatility.

Yes I have an original manual / wall poster in excellent condition if you are still interested.

I have a drill much like that, not sure of the brand off the top of my head, but whatever it is it has a small circular saw attachment. Last time I tried it the drill failed to operate.

I would like a scan/photo of the manaul and poster please.
I have just uncovered one of these from back of my garage (with an A4 poster with a piece ripped out).
£17 5 shillings and 0d apparently, Bo-Selecta !
