Band saw wobble - 4 replies

I have a 4 year old Powermatic 14 inch band saw. I have a 1/2 inch blade that is tightened to as tight as I feel it should be.

Have only room for a short workbench - 16 replies

Hello folks – This is my first post on the sight. My shop is my garage which we use in the Victor, NY winters to put both of our cars in. Everything gets pushed to the back. I have every thing on wheels so that is not too much of a problem. I want to build a new workbench based on the split Roubo style with a glide vise on the side and...
