Hi Lumberjocks!!!!
the plans for this bandsaw are cheap to download and are quite thorough only drawback is they are in centimeters. Bandsaw works great now its time to put it in use for some bandsaw boxes and resaw some lumber. B.T,W. this guy also has a youtube video of the bandsaw check it out! woodgeras.ca.

Hi dedao!!

the wheel went great as far as making them just by laminating two half inch birch ply’s with a 1/4 inch masonite in the the middle ..and truing then up in a temporarary makeshift lathe..they work extremely well.. and i cam resaw up to 10 3/4 boards. thanks fr r cmment havent been on lumberjocks for a good long while but im gonna make more appearances.

Good luck with your woodworking. sicilian

This is awesome. Did it take a long time to make? I need a bandsaw.

I love Woodgears.ca. I’ve spent some time on his site but it looks like he has some new projects.

This is my next project, does the band saw you built run as smooth as Mathias’ on woodgears.ca ?

Saweeeeeeeeeeeeeet I think this would be the way to go instead of getting a new one it must be cheaper too! I’m gonna make one, like I said it’s much cheaper than buying a new one.

I like it. Yes, I’ve seen Matthias’s. The best thing about these is YOU are the manufacturer.
