Homemade Band Saw #9: Bandsaw running...

05-15-2014 08:47 PM by dakremer | 16 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=9QzZ1xVC51s I’ve been kind of slacking with this bandsaw. I had to redo both wheels because the first time I did not glue them up nice and flat. I lost interest/got busy for a while, and put it off. I’m now determined to get it finished!! I shot this quick video of it running after I remade the wheels. The wheels aren’t balanced yet, so there is some vibration – you can see the Nickel is standing...

July, and it was pouring rain here in Boston, MA. for the past week. go figure. (although today it cleared out which is really nice). but enough about the weather (as if this will stop us).

The rails are 45” long with 2 1/2” tenon sticking on each side (to a total length of 50” – do the math). They are made of 2 2×4 that were jointed/plane...

Band Saw Tires parts 3 & 4

09-18-2011 09:52 PM by woodworkerscott | 5 comments »

I recently had a tire blow on the band saw. I thought it would be a good opportunity to share my experience with changing them out so I made a short 4 part series on it. Hope the info is helpful. Here are parts 3 and 4.Although not heavily used by end of part 4, the Urethane tires have shown me to be a good choice. I have used the band saw since completing the videos and I am very pleased at the performance. It runs quieter and blade tension is easier to set and hold.Thanks for viewing.

Got an excuse to buy a Riser Block..

10-17-2009 05:10 PM by Rick Boyett | 8 comments »

A couple of months ago, I bought this bandsaw off Craigslist. It’s a great little Grizzly BS. A couple of weeks ago I bought about 50 bd ft of Black Walnut from a fella at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX for only $2.00 a bd ft. (killer deal). I think I forgot how big the opening is for my BS. Looks like I’ll be buying a riser block and new BS blades now. I’m going to use this lumber to build a baby crib..

Raised beds for my garden #2: Compound angle bandsaw jig

01-27-2014 11:57 PM by exelectrician | 9 comments »

To cut the compound angles on the cedar 4 by 12’s I made this jig which is more of a rolling trolly.I used bed frame steel angle, and inline skate wheels. Got from Goodwill store at low cost.I cut 10 off, 7 degree wedges off the end of a one foot wide ply off-cut using my sliding miter saw. Using screws to secure the wedges while I played around with the general arrangement, at first I thought I would need two trolleys but then I realized that I could use one trolley if I centered t...

Donna's DragonFly Harp Project

12-29-2010 02:18 AM by Donna Menke | 13 comments »

Hi Guys-I’m starting to make another harp and I thought some of you would be interested in seeing how it goes- as it goes.Why am I designing my own harp? I wanted to see if I could modify the Limerickplans I used for the Rainbow harp I made in 2007. I wanted the soundbox smaller,and I wanted it to be self-supporting and as tall as the Heartland DreamWeaverthat I have and like. I took aspects of lots of different harps and put them alltogether and this is what I came up with. I also want...

My Shop #3: Band Saw Blues

11-24-2009 06:45 PM by DannyBoy | 3 comments »

The third in this series was supposed to be about a couple more additions to the table saw that I made last month. However, during a weekend wood-binge of trying to knock out Christmas presents, I had a bad moment. I won’t go into detail on the presents since some of the recipients like to lurk on my blogs, but I will say that I was cutting cedar on long curves. I mean, a lot of cedar. Aside from the dust clouds I was dealing with (yes, I was wearing a respirator and yes I had my ...

Shop Upgrades #3: Band Saw

12-03-2015 06:24 PM by bkseitz | 5 comments »

After driving myself really crazy this year I finally broke down and purchased a Band Saw. I had been looking at everything from a Rigid 14 to Laguna 14LTE to a Grizzly 17. However all through the process I kept wondering what would I do with the thing. 99.999% of the projects I’ve done are using table saw, drill press, planer, jointer. And on rare instance a jig saw. What gives me angst goes back a few years ago when I started building a corner of my barn into a workshop. ...
