Have a look I just put together a video about using a cheap power feeder with a band saw to re-saw. Typically for back supports or rockers for my rocking chairs which are bent laminated thus I need a lot, so this helps out with quality, efficiency and safety.

Nice video thanks. Nice bandsaws and shop too really. Is that an enormous jointer we are looking at above?

Hey thanks for watching and yes it is actually a jointer / planer 24’’ Robinson & Sons from 1952 a beautiful machine and pure pleasure to use. Also works as a table (-:

Since most bandsaw tables are adjustable for angle cuts, do you have any trouble with too must stress on
the trunnion brackets with the power feeder mounted on the edge of the table, or the table drifting from
a true 90 degree cut? Very nice shop and video.

No I have not had any issues, I’ve been using it like this for 1 year. Keep in mind this band saw has a really beefy table. Also it’s a pretty beefy fence also able to really lock down and be pushed hard against.
