it’s a very long trip, or a disappointing short one, however you look at, i have a few questions..
basically i’m wondering who else has this saw and what other mods you’ve done to it…
pending that.. here’s some details.
BLADES: right now it has a 91” x 3/8 blade on it. i’m reading about all types of blades in lonnie birds “the bandsaw book” (thanks library). but as unsure about how much tension this bandsaw can create?? is a half inch blade pushing it?
is there an upgrade for this? or do i get a whole different upper blade guard etc?
here’s an insanely long link to more info on the steel guides it has.
TENSION RELEASE LEVER:
and of course, since this is my first bandsaw….
does anyone else have any recommended upgrades? the saw was $120, and i have a kid on the way, so… a $100 fence seems impractical.
