Giant Bandsaw located at Laguna Beach, California

08-28-2011 05:35 PM by Loren | 11 comments »

I was down in Laguna and took some pictures of this reputed 38,000 lb behemoth. My guess is the wheel diameter is 66”-72”. Curiously the height capacity betweenthe guide blocks is only about 14”, so the saw must have been used in a differentsetup for initial slabbing of logs, or a different saw was used for the rough workwith the big trees and this saw was used for cutting dimensioned beams. The upper guide is not adjustable, but it does appear to be removable so conc...

Dice Tower #2: The Tower

08-28-2011 12:20 AM by ChadR | 1 comment »

I drew out all the cuts after I planed them out in Sketchup and then got to use my new bandsaw for the first time. Everything came out perfectly. I decided I would glue all the pieces together instead of nailing them. I started off by gluing the randomizer and then measuring for the walls. It did not take too long. I made sure to wait and hour for the glue to dry before I started on the walls but other then that it probably only took one hour. After I had it all glued together I sand...

Shop in the Sky #4: FINALLY got the walls up!

08-22-2011 02:44 AM by EROCK | 5 comments »

I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!

Just for Fun... #53: Adjustments...

08-10-2011 01:16 PM by littlecope | 11 comments »

Fun lately, has been in the form of fine-tuning and cleaning my “new” band saw…After purchasing a couple of Timberwolf Blades, I fed one on and centered it on the tires… (Tires, which will have to be replaced, when the budget allows…)I quickly discovered that my Dad had the guides set to the left, pulling the blade in and towards the body of the saw… Perhaps this is more desirable for metal cutting but I can’t help but feel it would cause undue stress...

Ok so the stool is done, I have a home repair at the top of the Honeydo, but a new request from Wifey. A rolling paper organizer for her scrapbooking paper. Sounds easy enough, have most of the stuff on hand too. Gonna use 1/2 plywood for the sides, top and bottom. Have some 1/4 plywood for the back on hand, along with some nice 1/4 hardboard for the shelves. The top and bottom will be dadoed to the sides and extend past the sides and back so I can add a trim lip to hide the ply’s...

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...
