Hi Boris;

Looks the the beginning of a serious habit!

I haven’t heard anything bad about that model band saw. Most people who aren’t getting the results they desire tend to assume they have a less than great machine. In reality, most machines are capable of very fine work, after they have been tuned properly. Just because it’s new, doesn’t mean it’s tuned to perform. Of course without the right blade, won’t help much either.

Taunton Press has a video / book written by Mark Duginski, entitled: Tiuning Woodworking Machines.

Mark demonstrates how to tune the table saw, jointer, and band saw. Once you learn his methods, keeping the machines running in tip top order becomes easy. From trouble shooting, to correcting.

He demonstrates his results by showing off a little. He is VERY good!

Look at the Grizzly G0555, They have a special edition, the “Polar Bear” edition, that is currently on sale. Insanely good band saw for not a lot of money…

I really like your tool cabinet. That looks like the plans I saw in Wood magazine sometime last year I think… I keep wanting to make a couple of those to house router bits, and hand tools…

Boris, this looks like a nice shop in which to work. You have managed to put together a pretty good selection of tools in your shop and I especially like the tool storage cabinet that you added to your shop. This design holds an abundance of tools while occupying a relatively small amount of wall space.

Thanks for the pictures. It was fun to visit your shop.

I really like your cabinet in photo 5, did you plan it out yourself? Any hints on building it? Over all a nice shop that will get better as you make improvements. Steve in Oregon
