Sorry, no pics yet… BUT!
I picked up a 12” bandsaw today! So happy about this! I’ve got some QSWO waiting to be resawn for a box project.
It is an older Craftsman model. Not the best, but it has a decent motor at 1-1/3 HP.
It took a little time to get tuned up, but not too bad. It does need some new thrust bearings, which I found on EBAY (no longer made). The existing ones are solidly bound up.
The tires on it are pretty heavily coated in saw dust and pitch. I may by a set of new tires just for good measure.
I will end up building a new stand and mobile base for it, but it’s ok for the moment.
Anyhow, I’m very excited about this new addition to the shop.
Also, I’ve decided I want a tool board like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VAmWs5vH1o
-- I do this for fun.
