The rain last night has forced me to make unwanted changes today.

Ok everyone get your fiddles out ready and tuned. :)

Having only one bandsaw has it’s disadvantages, so I had the bandsaw setup for resawing logs as that’s what I had projected on my schedule, it was a three day planning and today was my third day so it seemed, last nights rain as decided to make that change for me and cut me short as now all of the logs are wet, so now I’ll have to go through the painstaking task of removing 1/2” resaw blade, (14” bandsaw with riser) the table, lower and upper guides replacing the upper guides with the carter stabilizer putting the table back on and then the 3/16” finish blade, then after wood as dried rinse and repeat the process. Ugh!

To clear up my post, I was merely stating what setup I had in parenthesis, the riser block is not removed sorry for the confusion.

It sounds like you have just talked yourself into buying a second bandsaw. some things really don’t need a lot of persuasion when it comes to tools.

Some questions: (1) Why are you removing the riser block, table, lower and upper guides? Once you’ve taken the time to install the riser block and align the upper and lower wheels and install Carder guides, all you need to do is change your blade and adjust your guides for the new blade. I installed a riser bock 15 years ago (or more) and have never done more than I’ve set out in my second sentence. A 104-105” blade is far cheaper than the time wasted removing a riser block and all new alignment. JMHO.

P.S. Or, perhaps I missed the point and Greg just nailed it in his first post? ;-)

Randy,

Are you planning to take the riser out? Are you nuts! LOL! Just buy a new finish blade? Cheaper than a new saw? LOL! Or take the time to clean up the shop, and play a little with the kids and the dog?

But you make and sell a lot of band saw boxes?

Greg No room the last tool I purchased was it, the floor drill press filled it up.

Greg not the riser block, sorry for the confusion there, I was just simply stating what setup I had in the parenthesis, the riser block is not removed it stays on :) the table is removed so I have easy access to the lower guides for removal of the guids, I do this so they don’t load up and lock with sawdust, the carter stabilizer doesn’t require them thus they are not needed and they are easier to get to without the table in the way

I took the & symbol out and replaced it with maybe that will help. :)

Thomas the riser block stays and thank goodness. if I had to go through the task of removing it every time a blade swap then hell yea I’d be looking to make more room for another bandsaw. LOL

I’ve sawed wet logs with no problems. Just wax and dry your table when you’re done.
