Photo 1 shows the 14” band saw on its stand. This saw and stand is easy to move around the shop and outside with its 10” hard rubber wheels. Photo 2 shows the band saw with its table removed and the dolly under the stand ready to receive the saw in the horizontal position. Photo 3 shows the band saw in the process of being lowered. Why not just lift the saw off the stand you might ask? It is heavy and I have a bad back. This was a no mess no fuss solution. Photo 4 shows the saw resting on the dolly ready to be wheeled over to the gantry. Disconnecting the saw from the stand is a simple matter of removing the pulley wire from the pulley on the saw and unscrewing two knobs at the base of the saw. Photo 5 shows the saw in the gantry. And, photo 6 shows my first test run on a short round of log.
The entire saw is now disconnected.
I am powering the saw with a 2 hp. motor. I have a 3/4”, 3 t.p.i. blade installed and it runs at 2611 f.p.m. Overall I am happy with the results. I still need to do some tweaking here and there.
