CHARLES NEIL BANDSAW RESAWING JIG II FOR RESAWING OR SLICING VENEER ON THE SMALL BANDSAW

This is an inexpensive point of contact jig which came from Charles Neil’s resawing DVD. I have done some minor modifications,, but pretty much this is all Charles Neil. its purpose is for resawing and/or slicing veneers.

I’ve been posting recently on my ”CHAINSAW MILL MADNESS” and wanted to post something a little more positive and useful for other lumberjock’s. I have posted a blog if you’re interested in making one or reviewing this in more depth.

I think this will work well in a lot of situations. Great idea using the magnets in the jig. That idea can be used for other jigs too. Nice going.

Looks like this will work and the only change I would make is use C clamps as I have seen too many F clamps come loose due to vibration .

Thanks Klaus,

Using what I have. No c clamps, lots of f clamps. I’ll keep watch though.

Did you have a good project with the grandson?

It makes good sense, Tom. I think you’re trying to beat me in number of jigs in your shop ! LOL
One thing : too bad you have to keep the upper bearing so high when resawing narrow stock as shown. Does making several jigs makes senses, let’s say in one inch increment, so you would be able to lower the bearing, and the guard closer to the work ? Perhaps swapping the dowels only. Just a thought !

Best,

Serge

Serge,

LOL! I’ll keep your suggestions in mind. I’ll bet you have lower point of contact jigs on your web page? I do have a fence that came with my bandsaw. Don’t think I’ll get any where close to a master idea man like you.

This is for my logs when I really like what I see after opening up a log.
