This was my first time turning the bandsaw on. So far so good. In my previous blog entry I stated that I might have to remake the top wheel – from the video you can see there’s a pretty good amount of wobble in it compared to the bottom wheel. I’m not sure if this will effect the performance or not since the wobble doesnt effect the crown of the wheel (you can see the blade stays nice and straight).
It’s a little loud right now because I dont have the rubber around the wheels yet, and there’s a clicking in the drive belt because it isnt tight enough.
It felt good turning it on for the first time! I can’t wait to finish it up and get using it!
The video isnt embedding like its supposed to. Here is the youtube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z8vZniiQ1c
