Grizzly H3051 Riser Block Kit (for G0555) but also fits Ridgid BS1400

Grizzly H3051 Riser Block Kit (for G0555) but also fits Ridgid BS1400

942 days ago by David Grimes | 18 comments »

I recently purchased and assembled a Ridgid 14” floor model bandsaw (the BS1400). I had also ordered and received the 6” riser kit from Grizzly that is made for their G0555 14” bandsaw, but also fits several of the other 14” bandsaws: Ridgid, Craftsman, Cummins, Summit, and others. It ran about $80 shipped, which is half what the Ridgid kit costs (if you can get one). This kit is rated 5 stars by 19 of 22 reviewers on Amazon, with the other three 4’s and 3...

Powermatic Bandsaw 6 inch riser block

Powermatic Bandsaw 6 inch riser block

946 days ago by 489tad | 7 comments »

I have a project that will require 8” resawing. I purchased from Woodcraft the Powermatic 6” riser block for my PM 14” bandsaw. The kit includes the riser block, blade guard, bolt washer nut, guide post, upper wheel blade guard, 105” saw blade and instructions. All the parts were well packed. The riser block had one paint bubble on the mating surface that I remove with a file. The directions are clear and installation was easy. I did need the help of my son to ...

Logging Arch to move medium size logs

Logging Arch to move medium size logs

994 days ago by HalDougherty | 8 comments »

I found a great logging arch for sale on Craig’s List last week. It was located about 300 miles from my shop, but the seller was kind enough to meet me 100 miles closer. That was a big help and saved me about 3 hours of driving time. The American Bandsaw company makes a great product to move logs. The model I bought used is a 24-12 arch. It is designed to move a log 12’ long, 24” in diameter and 3000 lbs in weight. The sycamore log in the first photo is 24” on the ...

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

Olson All Pro Bandsaw Blade

1025 days ago by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

I was beginning to think I would never have much luck resawing on the bandsaw. I had been using Delta blades that were pretty well worn. I wanted a blade that would slice 3/16” veneers that I could plane down to a consistent 1/8” thick for laminating leg stock. This blade fits the bill. Give the man at your local woodworking store a $20 bill in exchange for the ability to resaw with ease. This is a 3 tpi X 1/2”wide hook blade with a raker set. As such it is very aggres...

Driftmaster Fence on Grizzly 17" Bandsaw

Driftmaster Fence on Grizzly 17" Bandsaw

1051 days ago by bill4123 | 16 comments »

I just finished installing my Laguna Tools Driftmaster Fence on my Grizzly 17” Extreme Series bandsaw. I have only used it briefly to test it but I felt compelled to let everyone know about my negative feedback up to this point. I had a smooth transaction from Rockler and the shipping was prompt. The fence itself though was shipped as it came from the manufacturer and it is very much in-line with Laguna’s reputation…it arrived damaged. It was not damaged enough to effe...

Crank Makes the Bansaw Fun to Use Again

Crank Makes the Bansaw Fun to Use Again

1124 days ago by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

I was frustruated by the factory blade tensioning knob on my Jet 14” bandsaw. It didn’t extend above the cover of the saw, so you bang your knuckles every turn you make. Plus the factory knob took forever to tension the blade.The Big Horn crank is quick and easy to use. The crank is above the saw – so no more banged knuckles. It is so quick that I am no longer considering a Carter quick-release. The $15 price and free delivery on Amazon was icing on the cake.

Does the job

Does the job

I received one of these for Christmas and as simple as it is it does the trick. I installed it where they suggested, drilling a small pilot hole first then screwing it into the blade guide. It does a good job cleaning the tire and seems to be well made and should last a long time. i really like Carter band saw accessories. I give it 5 stars..

Modernize your Band Saw

Modernize your Band Saw

1203 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 5 comments »

I was lucky enough to receive one of these for Christmas this year. It is really well made like all the other Carter products. The instructions were concise, with lots of pictures. It’s pretty straightforward to install. You have to disassemble the whole top of the bandsaw, but it’s easy. The tricky part was lining the toggle assembly up parallel to the tensioner, and marking the holes. You drill two holes to mount it and they even include the drill bit! Then you just put the saw ...

Carter RIK1 Stabilizer for Rikon saws

Carter RIK1 Stabilizer for Rikon saws

1235 days ago by lashing | 6 comments »

This actually works. I cannot add much that isnt covered in the youtube videos Carter has up. I was 50/50 on buying it as I thought it may be hype. But it works great. I cut some amazing curves with it and now think it wasnt that expensive after all. OK for $80 it is expensive. Hopefully the bearing is a good one and I would assume it must be as its constantly engaged with the blade. Check out the promo vids Carter has. I am not affiliated at all. My real life experience matches what is...

Believe The Hype!

Believe The Hype!

The Wood Slicer bandsaw blades from Highland Woodworking are awesome. When I first purchased my “Rikon 14 deluxe bandsaw my local Woodcraft store said that the 1/2” blade that came with it was pretty good. I took their advice on that, and also purchased a 3/4” 3TPI Timber Wolf blade for resawing. Both seemed to work, but my results were so-so. For the first real challenge I resawed some green cherry logs for turning blanks. I started with the blade that came with the saw. Meh. It really...
