Homemade Band Saw #1: Getting started...

03-08-2013 06:10 PM by dakremer | 10 comments »

I’ve been keeping my eye on WoodGears for a while now. I’d love to build all of his contraptions, but don’t have the time or the space at the moment. I’ve been wanting to build his bandsaw for some time now, and finally took the plunge. Plus I just got my tax refund back, and instead of buying an expensive bandsaw (a tool I currently do not own), why not just make one? I will try and keep the blog current and take as many pictures as I can. Hopefully most of the p...

Tools of the Trade - The Evolution of My Woodworking Tools

03-07-2013 02:35 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

Every wood worker has to start somewhere. My somewhere began with the purchase of a Shop Smith and this began the evolution of my woodworking tools. My mother and father had a friend that was selling their Shop Smith multi tool system back in the mid 1990’s and I was lucky enough to purchase it. This Shop Smith is perfect for doing small projects but not big construction jobs like I was used to. I decided that buying this system gave me a reason to put my creativeness to work and begin doing ...

Old BandSaw upgraded, Pulley questions to fellow Lumberjockers

01-25-2013 05:24 AM by James Lango | 13 comments »

This is my 1952 Craftsman 12” Band Saw. She has been soo unrealiable over the years and i was on the verge of tossing her out. BUT- i figured to give it a go and see what she can do when everything is tuned up and running smooth. Did some research and reading, found out that although this saw is old and relatively small (12”) she was able to hold her own back in the day. New paint.New guidesNew thrust bearings (stainless steel pulleys work in place)New solid ...

Simple Band Saw Fence

11-01-2012 03:37 AM by arco21 | 11 comments »

I decided it was high time I quit clamping a piece of wood to my bandsaw table whenever I needed a fence, and upgraded to something more easily adjustable. Based on a design for a drill press fence in a recent Woodsmith Small Shops book, I came up with this cleat style fence. I used 2×4’s for the front and back rails, putting the 45 degree angle on them with my table saw. I bolted them to the existing threads on my bandsaw’s fence. The fence is a piece of cherry, and t...

So, I got some money back from Uncle Sam and my wife says to get some tools!!! I tell my wife that she best not be messing with me about tools, because that is ONE thing that should NOT be messed with. She tells me to get what I want, just be sure that I can use it. Well as you know, we can all use everything we buy! So, for once in my marriage (16 years now) I got to pick some tools and for once, I could NOT think of an actual TOOL that I needed, so I went for ACCESSORIES!!!! O.K. g...
