This week, the prize is Hendrik’s seventh DVD course called “Using and
Tuning Your Bandsaw”. It is almost 8 hours long and focuses on bandsaw
set-up, fine tuning, blade changing, etc., including both a 14” cast iron
bandsaw and a 16” cabinet type bandsaw. It also covers bandsaw use,
including ripping, crosscutting, resawing, curve cutting, circle cutting and
even some joinery work. A long and detailed bonus section covers how to
make templates with your bandsaw in order to tackle template routing
operations later. You can read more about this 4-DVD set here:

Cdn. $89.95 + taxes and shipping.
To enter to win this contest, just post a comment giving your answer to this
question: “In your opinion, what makes a bandsaw such a versatile machine
compared to a tablesaw, and what are the bandsaw’s limitations?” Post a
comment before March 28, 2014 and Hendrik will choose his
favourite answer. Then we’ll let you know how to claim your prize. Hendrik
will ship it directly to your home at no cost to you.
