Randy, It depends on what you want it to do. I am one of those who researches/overthinks all my major purchases and I looked at this saw and decided to buy the 17” extreme series for several reasons: 2HP,cast iron everything,12” resaw capacity,cast iron trunions,tall resaw fence included,etc. I’ve had mine for 3 or 4 years and love it! I wanted to buy once and not have to upgrade or add features later so if you can swing the extra$, I’d go for the 17”. I got lucky and caught a free shipping deal as well.

Andy,
Thanks for the input. Unfortunately, the 17” is out of my budget, so 14” it is. I’m also hoping something will show up on CL. No luck so far, time will tell.

For that amount of money Randy, catch a Greyhound. Bring a motor, two lengths of steele shaft, a handful of bearings, and a 105” blade. I recommend the Woodslicer from Highland Woodoworking. I’ll help you build one.

Good Morning Gentlemen,

I have cleaned the grout off the floor this morning. I have probably three more cleanings before it is ready to seal. I also have painted the closet already. Now it is time to sit back and watch the wood working shows. First is “The Woodsmith shop, next is Roy Underhill and then probably I will rewatch a Stumpy show.

Coffee is like Miss J, sweet and hot, how can one guy be so lucky.

Randy – the ole’ bandsaw debate….....that Grizzly 14” always seems to get good reviews and the price is certainly right for a new saw…....I think Andy made some really solid points as well. Before I forget, you should consider keeping your old saw as well…...This way you can keep a small blade in it for doing intricate work.

I was really lucky to get 2 great saws off CL cheap. I have an 18 Craftsman that was pretty rough (for $200 I think). Added new urethane tires, built Lignum Vitea guides and it really cuts nice…..and I found a pristine (made in USA) Delta 14” for $100 or maybe $125, didn’t need to do much but general cleaning to get that machine cutting good.

My biggest issue was finding a blade that will hold up to cutting really hard wood, exotics and such. I’ve never tried the Woodslicer, but have used several Timberwolf blades (which cut great initially, but lose there edge fast) and Olson All Pro blades, which I DON’T recommend – will never do that again.

The real surprise came when I found a link on LJ’s to these: http://buyfromawoodworker.com/Sterling-3-8x032x3TPI-X-tra-Duty-Carbon-Blade-STL-3-8032x3HXD.htm

They are in-expensive and CUT GREAT! I really can’t believe how good they cut. And they are 1/2 the price of the premium blades…....give them a try…....It’s Hal Taylor’s website, so all the stuff there is hand picked by him.

Randy – don’t forget Marty’s trick – keep your eyes on those auction listings…....there is a sweet old Rockwell saw on auction right now here…...

Good morning fellow misfits.

Don’t quite know what today will bring, depends on how Sandra is when she wakes up, but there is more than a good chance I will get some time off to pursue some shop time, even if it is just making headway with the restoration.

After watching the latest debate and reading the ”news”?, I have decided that if one certain lot win, then the next day I will be one of Bud’s Gun Shop’s best customers. I’ll be fortifying the shop and making a new area for bulk ammo storage.

I do really hope y’all have a wonderful weekend.

Good Afternoon.

I slept in.
It’s really cold out there this morning.

David – If you do get Olga to come and live with you don’t worry about speaking russian. Love is a language understood by all. :)

Well, I think I finally managed to scrape up the cash to go to that truck driving school. So a week from monday I start. Looking forward to the change this will bring.

We have a food and wine pairing evening to attend tonight. I just got an email from a friend who owns the wine making store that is putting on the event telling me to be prepared. There are 5 courses plus cheese plus dessert plus all the different wines to try with the different foods. I used to cater all the foods for these events but not this time. This time I’ll be out front enjoying myself.

Marty – I hope today goes off without a hitch, and congratulations on acquiring a new daughter.

Mike

Have a great day everyone.

Thanks for all the BS input/advice! (BS- could mean bandsaw or could mean…....)
I may actually take Andy’s advise and squirrel away a few more funds. I have a bonus from work coming and with NO MORE auto loan payments, I may be able to put enough away for a GREAT BS, as oppossed to a good one. It could be problematic though. My pockets are always erupting into flames when I have “extra” money!!!

Today’s “To-Do” list:
1) Half a day of work. DONE
2) Repair/replace the chef’s leaking toilet seal. (Currently, trying to muster the energy)
3) Laundry, clean/organize bedroom. (remove ac, put window fan in storage…)
4) Put away summer clothes.
5) Pull out the fall/winter waredrobe.
6) Putter in the shop. (get ready to install Planer parts)
7) Have a cold one. (or two or twelve)

I gotta run. TTFN…....

David,
I promise that I will NOT “burn myself out” today (or any day for that matter).

I got the toilet fixed. Do you know what a PIA it is to remove a toilet when the supply valve WON’T turn off the flow of water!!! I did end up also replacing the supply valve, but that was a PIA because the main water supply valve would NOT stop the flow of water!!! NO, I’m not replacing the main shut off. I’m leaving that to someone else.

My chef has added to my “To-Do” list. He has asked me to install a few towel racks and a corner shelf.

Oh, I hear him cracking the whip!!! Gotta go…...

I’m working on a jig saw puzzle – well 2 of them…...a pair of end tables…....all solid Maple. I bought a bunch of 20” Maple strips cheap so trying to find uses for them besides cutting boards…....

The cutting and (and re-cutting) of these parts is crazy…...here are some dry fit photos…....two things:

1. I actually used curves…..
2. Make a cut list first…...so you don’t need to re-setup all the critical cuts twice…....

Looking for input on whether to finish before assembly or not…...never done that before….Also thinking about building a drawer in the top space…...will see….
