Hi All,

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. Will get a better picture of myself eventually. Since I do all the picture taking in my family I seldom get my picture taken. Sound familiar?

Two questions to start with.

1. I bought a Steel City Band saw like Gary K’s. Gary did a great job showing how he added a riser block to it. That is what attracted me to this site. I am still waiting for my riser block kit. However, my question is about removal of the bolt that holds the band saw top to the bottom. I can get at the nut with a 30 mm socket, but not at the top of the bolt. A crescent wrench wont fit in there. Must I find a 30 mm flat wrench Or is there another way?

2. A 1/4” blade came with the Steel City band saw. When I use it there are marks left behind in the cut that I must use a scraper followed by a stationary belt sander to get them out. So if I want an 1/16” thick strip [for laminating] it looks like I must saw off about an 1/8” thick piece. Is this typical? Is there an aftermarket blade that would do a better job?

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
