Cherry finger jointed box #2: A little bit more done...

08-21-2016 04:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Before the storms came through. Shop is closed down, due to a creek running across the floor. Floor drain working good, just was a LOT of rain outside. Had to stop for supper, anyway. Sooo, what all DID I get done? Well, I hauled the Stanley #45 down the stairs,and even brought along that new bottle of glue. Marked out for more finger joints, as I had two more corners to do. Hands were sore from all the handsaw work, so I used the bandsaw instead.. Then clamp it to the ben...

Cherry finger jointed box #1: the start up

08-20-2016 06:32 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

A few weeks ago, picked a slab of wood at a yard sale, for a dollar bill… Slab was 5’ long, just over 1” thick. At the narrow end, it was over 12” wide, far end was 17” counting the bark.I resawed it down to something I could use. Then decided to resaw these into 1/2” thick slabs… Had decent luck with two of the slabs, the other two? Not so nice. Well, maybe I can “make do” with the better stuff? Crosscut the better of the...

Gil-Bilt 18" Band Saw build #1: The kit

08-13-2016 12:19 AM by mountainaxe | 1 comment »

I’ve always wanted a big band saw, but never wanted to spend a pile of $$$ for one. I’ve suffered with a C-man tilt head band saw for a couple of years and it’s simply terrible. I found a couple of threads regarding Gilliom Manufacturing, Inc., Gil-Bilt 18” band saws on this site and started looking for one on-line. The company has been making woodworking machine kits since the 1940s…and I believe they’re still in business. After a lot of searching, I...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

Powermatic 141 bandsaw refurbish #5: Saw setup

06-13-2016 09:10 PM by splintergroup | 6 comments »

(Note: updated with tension spring info at the end) The saw is assembled and ready for adjusting all the parts that matter (to me!). The Blade Everything on the saw needs to be adjusted with respect to the blade. The table needs to be square to the blade, the guide bar needs to be square to the blade, the blade guides need to be set to the blade, etc. Step 1: Get the blade installed First thing is to install a blade. The saw had a 1/4” blade in good condition so I looped...
