« Part 4: Shopmade Grr-Ripper, Heat and Bandsaw Fence Part 5 of Shop Improvements series Part 6: Bench Grinder Toolrest »

In the previous post I had a pic of the glue up for my little bandsaw fence. I finished it today and thought I’d post a couple of pics. The bandsaw is old, but I got it for $10 at a garage sale and all it needed was a new blade. The switch is dead, but the variable speed still works. I just flip it on and off via a power strip switch. It works for now!

It’s a very simple design, but works very well. The wood plate on the back is loose, so it kind of floats into place when you tighten the wingnut in the front.

I have an older 10” Delta Bandsaw, I call it my toy bandsaw. I plan to get a much larger one very soon. However, the 10” will continue to be setup also. It is hard to beat for quick scrolling and small cuts, and gets a lot of use in the shop. I bet you will get plenty of use out of that old B&D also. They have their limits, but it beats a scroll saw for most things.
