Hi guys, since redryder liked my bandsaw table, I thought I’d make some other small upgrades…
I’ve added telescopic legs

a flywheel-cleaner, a beech plate, a dust hood, a little but usefull cabinet

and the “icing on the cake”....the safety stop

I hope you like it…bye!!

Nicely tricked-out bandsaw. Anyone can use these good ideas, not just a poor man.
Well done.

Most Excellent!

You have elevated your Band Saw to new hieghts and beyond. My band saw is jealous.
