Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #1: Buying the Beast

08-06-2013 02:35 AM by FreezFurn | 4 comments »

I found this beastly bandsaw at an estate sale earlier this summer. I have been looking for an older 14 inch in working condition for quite some time for the right price, but Craigslist and other estate sales were not working out within my budget. I want a saw that can resaw and cut out bowl or pen blanks easily. Well this one seemed to fit the bill.

It helps to watch these 2 videos to understand what I mean: Obviously, no large through-cuts, so no very-wide slabs, but if you need to turn a big pile of pine, or a very huge tree into dime...

The Non-Electric Chair #10: Waiting for Beech To Dry

Leaving the tool chest for a moment; we go back a few years to the Domesday Book and 1086 and an interesting fact – 13 saws were recorded in the kingdom, bowsaws were common at the time so what kind of saws were these? Probably not sawmills; mills are mentioned aplenty and millponds too but they were agricultural mills. These are probably pitsaws, a gruelling job for two men; one of them in the pit and the other steering the two-handed saw and balancing on the level tree-trunk as they r...
