hi Folk’s! I just complete my shop made band saw, it really works great and was a good challenge and learn a lot from this project. thks to Mattias for the support along the way.

I was able to get a very thin blade, it’s 2MM wide, (less than 1/8” wide) so I can do almost scroll saw cuts. I’m very happy with my new toy!

Very very cool. It is a very clean design and build.

Great looking bandsaw! I’m always impressed with the quality of tools that I see other woodworkers building here on Lumberjocks. This one looks like one of the best.
