36" S A Woods bandsaw restoration #4: pouring babbitt

08-07-2011 01:16 PM by jeffl | 2 comments »

One picture here shows where I poured half the bearing at a time. The excess is fairly easily filed away. You could use a grinder to get close but at $10 a pound I wanted to save every shaving. The next picture is after my 1 St attempt, it turned out pretty good. You need 80% contact so I read and this is well over that. The picture of the shield show some spatter that occurred when pouring the top half of the bearing. I don’t know what caused it, probably sweat inside I coul...

Tool Additions #1: 14" Summit Bandsaw

08-02-2011 08:17 AM by BreakingBoardom | 4 comments »

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...

52 Weeks #30: Blanks and time with my daughter

08-01-2011 04:24 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Greetings all, Well I did not yet complete the project I was talking about last week because I got myself a little sidetracked. I was able to spend time in the shop most of Friday and the weekend. On Friday I began preparing to make some more pens. Ordered a good number of pen kits online and can’t wait for them to arrive. I am planning to provide most of my own blanks from wood I have collected. So with a little help from my Jointer and bandsaw I got a small batch of pieces to start with… ...

Bandsaw upgrades #1: How to rewire a Grizzly G0555 Bandsaw

07-31-2011 05:20 AM by Elizabeth | 5 comments »

This weekend I successfully completed the task of rewiring my Grizzly 14” G0555 bandsaw from 110v to 220v. I had a lot of questions before I started, so I thought it might be nice to write a blog tutorial for others who might be interested in doing this. Background: I am a mechanical engineer by training with very little electrical experience – only what they forced us to take in college, which was mostly theory and over ten years ago now. Before starting this project I aske...

Historic Woodworker Videos #1: Paul Prybil, First Commerically Available Bandsaw

07-30-2011 11:11 PM by Hoosierwoodcraft | 3 comments »

In June, I researched the history of Paul Prybil, who invented the first commerically available bandsaw. The video is posted at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUlMWLV5AQ4 Here was a man that made a lot of money in his lifetime. To see his story, see the video. After I posted this video, I got a call from the great great grandson on Paul Prybil. He told him that his great grandfather lived in a wonderful life in Long Island, with many servants. After a dinner with J P MOrgan in the 1...

New Bandsaw

07-29-2011 11:21 PM by CartersWhittling | 9 comments »

Hey lumberjocks. Today I got my new bandsaw. Its a 16” Laguna, with a 2.5 hp motor. I got it used from my uncle, its only a few years old. It has had relatively little use and mostly light use aswell. I got it for about half the price he paid for it. It comes with the 1” resaw blade that is on the saw in the pictures and with a half dozen or more other sized blades. It has a 12.5” resaw capacity and from the times I used it at my uncle’s shop it cut through a 10”...

It's Beginning to look at lot like Christmas #2: Box Drawers Begin to Take Shape

07-28-2011 06:56 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I got the snowman carcass and drawers all separated and the drawers cut up and formed back together. I also got the first round of sanding done on the snowman’s body. Predictably, I am planning to paint this white (with a black hat, black buttons and and orange nose). Next up is some sanding on the drawers, and cutting up a 1/4” dowel to make the 3 “buttons” to go down the front (2 of the buttons will be drawer pulls for the 2 bottom drawers).

36" S A Woods bandsaw restoration #2: cleaning up

07-26-2011 08:51 PM by jeffl | 9 comments »

I didn’t know where to start but I really wanted a more appropriate color than John Deere green. Some of the paint practically fell off and I got out an old gallon of paint stripper, I’m not positive but I think 20 years old since my daughter is turning 20 soon and I think I bought it to strip a crib for her. I took some pics of the can since the front said instructions on the side then I took a pic of the side. I don’t know the original color but ...
