Hello, after a long time I share my next project I worked on over the summer of this year.
Even it is not made of wood, but certainly belongs of the projects of woodworkers.
It is a woodworkers band saw about 30s, wheel diameter is 70cm, engine power is2.2 kilowatts and weighs about 200 kg so
The Saw I bought from sister-parents who have already years
not used and has long been in the barn. I was very pleased when they told me that I would have sold it because I love beautiful old machines, which is seen that they were produced by hand.
I began her to komplet examining, followed by about three day intensive cleaning and remove the rust from every single parts and screws
When I degrease everything with acetone then I sprayed two-component base paint and a two-component matt black. Make it look interesting, so I painted the smaller pieces and electromotor green.
Assembly of the machine was one of joy, everything looked like new, wheels and the electro motor they got a new bearings.
Next when I already had everything pieced together, the missing pulley on the motor and the Band Saw guide, how did it miself. I found exactly I’ve wanted, I made a drawing and have done with the help of only an angle grinder and drill, but the result I am very proud.
I hawe not pictured cover of the blade, tat I still have not finished because now I have no time at all.
The Saw does not hawe even its place in my workshop, but over time I hope that something can I build and reserves its place there.
Thank you for viewing and reading the story, sorry for the grammar, but I do not know English very well :)
-- I like the precise work...
