Workshop #29: New Bandsaw Stand

06-27-2014 08:44 PM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

I bought my old Craftsman bandsaw off of Craigslist a sometime ago and it came with a metal stand with some nice retractable wheels. You see it here in an old shop picture. It has done a great job but I was constantly tightening the screws holding it on the stand and when I moved it into place next to my new lathe I soon was tripping over the splayed legs or killing my ankle on the wheel locks. So I finally took some time to get a new stand built for it. the best part is that I...

Just for Fun... #84: Square Wood from Round Branches...

06-26-2014 02:57 AM by littlecope | 15 comments »

This has been a perplexing enigma to me for many years! The old-timers would just split it (roughly square) and then square it up with progressively finer Tools… And that works very well, but there’s a lot of time spent doing it!I’ve had a Bandsaw now for over a year, and it’s supposed to have this capability all of its own… With the right kind of set-up…So, in the back of my mind, I’ve been pondering what kind of Sled was needed to do this… ...

Buying Your Last Tool First

06-19-2014 03:12 PM by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Buying Your Last Tool First I acquired my first shop space around 2 years ago. Once I moved into my shop, I began my quest to fill the shop with awesome power tools. This post will discuss the overarching rule I follow when buying my power tools, and some examples of tools I have purchased. My thought process about buying powertools is this: Buy your last tool first!!! What I mean by that is make your first tablesaw, bandsaw, router, jointer, etc the one that you want to be using when y...

Piping Up #2: What to do when the machines break

06-12-2014 07:37 PM by sylinen | 4 comments »

I love my Shopsmith|I hate my Shopsmith. It’s a couplet familiar to any owner of that beguiling piece of machinery. When they work, they’re a great tool. When they break, they’re rather annoying. My Shopsmith’s particular failing is in the alignment of its pulley sheaves. They tend to become misaligned at high speed, which is no great issue when I’m using the table saw. But, when I need to slow it down the sheaves don’t mesh and I end up pushing out the thr...

Shopmade 20" Bandsaw #1: The Frame

05-24-2014 07:36 PM by William Shelley | 7 comments »

This is a project I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, ever since I saw the great videos by Matthias Wandel ( http://woodgears.ca/ ) of his shop-made bandsaw. A bandsaw is a tool that I don’t yet possess and my budget is far too small to afford “enough” bandsaw to make me satisfied. I enjoy veneer work and finishing, and working with figured wood is a lot of fun. Being able to resaw my own veneer slices is a capability I would really like to have, however the comme...
