Ahhhh. Hope you don’t mind giving you a little advise, turn the wheel a few times (while unplug, you unpluged the machine right?) to make sure the blade is really riding on the wheel before you start the machine.

Thanks Shawn, It’s always interesting to see how you solve any of the problems that occur during your builds.
Yep I’ve got one of those tool boxes as well. Alf

This is hysterical…
1.) handling a band saw blade… arm and hand protection. Buddy almost lost his left elbow jackin’ around with a band saw… has rope scar on forearm and bicep… almost 45* angle cut off at the elbow joint.
2.) we SAW you jump when the blade shifted… (Actually, I think I wet myself, a little.)
3.) the lift piece for the planer… it shifts quite a bit… a little scary.
4.) More, more, more… Nothing fake about this guy.
