Upgrade for my Delta Shopmaster 9" Bandsaw

Upgrade for my Delta Shopmaster 9" Bandsaw

10-29-2011 09:29 PM by webbtoyota | 6 comments »

This is my first review so bear with me if it’s not as clear and concise as others. I have a Delta Shopmaster bandsaw and I have absolutely hated using it in the past. I was just about ready to get rid of it until I ran into this website and heard about people “upgrading” the bandsaw with a decent blade and cool blocks. I decided to try this route before I put it up for sale. I just recently purchased a new Olson 1/4” 6 tpi blade and a set of cool blocks (about $30 ...

Wood Slicer

Wood Slicer

09-22-2011 10:10 PM by CartersWhittling | 27 comments »

Hello. I just got a new Wood Slicer Resaw blade from Highland Woodworking. After reading the setup and description of the blade I put it in my bandsaw and used a scrap 8/4 piece of oak to set the drift angle. Then I put a 10” maple log through the saw. Here is some pictures of the log I cut. The right half was done with a resaw blade that I got with my bandsaw from the previous owner and the left half is with the wood slicer. A little nicer I think. I bought both a 1/2” ...

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

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

09-17-2011 01:00 PM 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

09-13-2011 04:09 PM 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

07-27-2011 03:15 PM 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

06-25-2011 05:30 PM 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

05-31-2011 03:54 AM 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

03-18-2011 09:15 PM 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

12-30-2010 02:04 AM by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

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

12-30-2010 01:36 AM 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 ...
