I recently had a tire blow on the band saw. I thought it would be a good opportunity to share my experience with changing them out so I made a short 4 part series on it. Hope the info is helpful. Here are parts 3 and 4.Although not heavily used by end of part 4, the Urethane tires have shown me to be a good choice. I have used the band saw since completing the videos and I am very pleased at the performance. It runs quieter and blade tension is easier to set and hold.Thanks for viewing.

Spirostachys africana is a medium-sized (about 30 ft tall) deciduous tree with a straight clear trunk found in the warmer parts of Southern Africa. Its wood is known as tamboti, tambotie, tambootie or tambuti. It prefers growing in single-species often along watercourses or on brackish flats and sandy soils. Despite its being prone to heart-rot, it is prized in the furniture industry for its beautiful, dense and durable timber, which is reddish-brown with darker streaks, a satin-like lu...
Well, I picked up this bandsaw off Craigslist last week for $40. After driving about 30 minutes from my house, I didn’t want to come home empty handed. It’s not going to win any beauty contest, but for the price I feel it was a good deal. As you can see it needs some work cleaning it up and definitely needs new tires. Will get some polyurethane tires (which cost almost what I paid for the saw) and a link best and some new blades and see how it works out. Will need to figure o...
For any of you that have not settled on your design yet, don’t worry. I am just going to address this part of the preparation stage since I have the time. This whole collaboration is set up to be flexible around everyone’s schedule and timetable. The information will be here when you are ready for it. Most of the time, I just end up drawing a design directly onto the wood. I do this out of poor planning and being what some folks might call lazy. The better way is definitely to draw your de...
Not only do I love maple and walnut, but I think they love each other too. They look so damn good together… they work well together, and they compliment each other beautifully. What more could a couple ask for? Well tonight I managed a wee bit of shop time. Between my 4 hours of sleep last night, being up at 4:15 am, and dealing with a two year old and a four year old that don’t play nearly as nice together as maple and walnut do, it wasn’t much shop time. But it was enou...
and not a lot to show for it. I have been spending the past couple of weeks practicing with my scroll saw, since I hate to do nothing I decided to work on a few signs and cut the letters out with the saw. This has given me a great opportunity to experiment with different blades and also prompted me to work on a dust collection concept for my saw. I finished the first sign this morning. I have had this saying hanging in my shop for a bit on a piece of paper; thought it would make a good...
I’m a relative newcomer to woodworking having really only had the opportunity to experience it when I was in high school “shop” class. I remember using the radial arm saw, bandsaw, stationary sander, and especially the lathe which I haven’t purchased yet but would love to have one day. Yesterday I had to have surgery to repair a torn miniscus in my left knee so all my projects now are just in my head. Today was also my wife’s birthday but I haven’t been ...
about 5 weeks ago i bought an old bandsaw for $100 and have just finished restoring it. originally it had a 1/3 horse motor but it appears that some time in the 60s someone replaced it with a 1 horse motor. here it is after i brought it home and cleaned the table i used a wire brush then proceeded to treat it with linseed oil and then johnson wax just to make sure it wont rust again for a while i also set to work taking it all apart and checking everything as well as oiling the uppe...
