Homemade Band Saw #9: Bandsaw running...

05-15-2014 08:47 PM by dakremer | 16 comments » I’ve been kind of slacking with this bandsaw. I had to redo both wheels because the first time I did not glue them up nice and flat. I lost interest/got busy for a while, and put it off. I’m now determined to get it finished!! I shot this quick video of it running after I remade the wheels. The wheels aren’t balanced yet, so there is some vibration – you can see the Nickel is standing...

Bench II

05-12-2014 09:15 PM by Jos | 0 comments »

I am building a set of two benches; one for me and, hopefully, a profit bench. The need for the bench is due to a lack of sitting locations to install shoes on my feet. We have a shoeless policy in our home. In one of my earlier project post, I made a simple bench out of treated pine scraps to get an idea of what I was doing before moving on to this build. This project is a skill step up from my previous bench. It has a small bit of shaping added by my 4-1/2” angle grinder usin...

Fools for Tools #1: The Band Saw that was Meant to Be (Walker Turner 14")

04-11-2014 09:33 PM by palaswood | 11 comments »

So im cleaning up in my garage shop a couple saturdays ago when a white SUV pulls right up to it and the guy inside tells me his daughter is my neighbor, he sees all my wood and wants to know if I’m interested in an old band saw? His father handed it down to him when he passed, but he doesnt use it now since he’s older and doesnt do woodworking anymore. I told him its the missing ingredient in my shop and I’m very interested! He sends me some pictures and it looks prom...

Raised beds for my garden #2: Compound angle bandsaw jig

01-27-2014 11:57 PM by exelectrician | 9 comments »

To cut the compound angles on the cedar 4 by 12’s I made this jig which is more of a rolling trolly.I used bed frame steel angle, and inline skate wheels. Got from Goodwill store at low cost.I cut 10 off, 7 degree wedges off the end of a one foot wide ply off-cut using my sliding miter saw. Using screws to secure the wedges while I played around with the general arrangement, at first I thought I would need two trolleys but then I realized that I could use one trolley if I centered t...

New Band Saw Setup

01-20-2014 04:46 AM by sgmdwk | 7 comments »

Last week I picked up a new Grizzly G0555LANV Band Saw. This was the result of a lot of consideration, but I finally pulled the trigger. Getting the thing home and set up was the next challenge. The saw was packed in two boxes, one weighing 40+ pounds, the other 206. I’m not the guy I once was; I have arthritis and a couple herniated disks in my lower spine. A 206 pound dead lift is not going to happen. To plan ahead I threw together a sled – two 2X4s and a piece of OSB. The Gr...

Being cheap #1: Band Saw Woes Triumphs and Tribulations

01-02-2014 08:15 AM by Ted78 | 2 comments »

Ten or twelve years ago, living in a tiny basement apartment with my then infant son, I bought my first power tool. The cheapest band saw they had down at the home improvement store. A “Tool Shop” bench top model. At $85 it was a major purchase for me, and to date the most I’ve ever spent on a single tool, at least all at once. My reasoning was that a band saw was versatile, compact, and relatively quiet. For the next decade the little saw that could served me admirably,...

Time to Step Up My Skills #6: Where do I go next? No new progress. And some questions...

07-17-2013 02:37 PM by AngieO | 15 comments »

Well… I haven’t made any new progress. I did some shop clean up and moved some things around. I have a few unfinished projects in the shop that I need to handle and get them out of the way. I am using the shelf under my bench to put the “in progress” projects. So the most I’ve done on my bench is to move it under there so that I don’t have to keep moving it from one spot to another to get it out of the way. This was probably a bad idea. LOL! Out of sight...

My DIY Bandsaw - 4th Shopmade Woodworking Tool #5: The band wheels and initial success.

06-14-2013 02:48 AM by Armand | 5 comments »

continuing on this project, i have already made the wheels out of used HDF materials from the doors of a broken cabinet. I fashioned out a quick jig for cutting the wheels on my table saw. the simple jig on my table saw made of 1/4” playwood. .I made 4 wheels and cut away the inner circles of the two and attached them on the remaining wheels with glue and screws. .and tested them on the frame. .I have also made the crowns on the wheels using the same jig on my table saw. But...
