A Resaw Adventure #2: Rotate

09-14-2021 11:53 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

To complete the cut…left the plywood spacer in place….what was the top is now the bottom. Start here….the saw is about..100+ years old….Disston No. D8…where the “8” is inside of the “D”...5-1/2 ppi, 28” long…big saw… Once it gets going, a spray of sawdust shoots out, all over the place. At about the 3 minute mark.. A nice steady…not too fast, not too slow ….had to stop for a bit, switched the hands a...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #1: Resaw work to start

06-03-2021 07:27 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

6 decent sized leftovers, problem being they are too thick…..3/4” would be nice for a large project….but not for a fancy little box. Solution would be to resaw them to 3/8” thickness. bandsaw more or less refuses such a job…..leaves more waves than the Mid Atlantic Ocean….hmmm Ok, set up the rip fence on the tablesaw, and raise the blade as high as it can go…. Blade is 8-1/4”, that is all the saw can handle…boards are a might wi...

Opinion: Budget resaw - Get a 1 HP 14 inch saw

10-13-2020 12:12 AM by Richard | 1 comment »

If you want to resaw, spend $400 and get a 1 HP saw. Resist the temptation to “save” $115 by “trying” a 1/3 HP saw. (Prices in effect Oct 2020) Resawing is the cutting of boards into even thinner boards, or at the limits into cuts thin enough to use for veneers. If you’re looking to start resawing, you’re going to need a band saw, and if your budget is tight, you don’t have a lot of options. I’ve tried two inexpensive floorstanding saws: a 10 inch Wen saw (3962; $28...

Getting the Most out of your Shopsmith #14: Resawing and a Stupid Bandsaw Trick: Twisting the blade on a Shopsmith Bandsaw (On purpose!)

09-23-2020 09:26 PM by MyGrowthRings | 0 comments »

As I promised in the previous video on the “Business End of the Shopsmith Bandsaw” in this video I cover the use of the bandsaw fence for straight cuts and for resawing, and while we are here we did a stupid bandsaw trick that the Shopsmith bandsaw can do by twisting the blade. And the reson for twisting the blade? I forgot to mention it in the video! It’s to allow the saw to crosscut wider boards. https://youtu.be/5lqzmibP3vg

Mini-Roubo from Oz #4: My first workbench build- recycling offcuts for inlay

07-31-2019 12:00 PM by siggykc | 4 comments »

Gday-gday, I hope its warm and sunny for you all – a start contrast to the cold wet mornings in Melbourne as of recent! Due to the weather one evening after work, I was stuck at home with my small garage that is setup for some small metalworking jobs. Bored, I racked my brain for things to do. As you readers of this blog will know, the last thing I posted on was the leg vise, which is made predominantly out of quilted (big leaf?) maple.The bloke that sold me that quilted maple ...

Tools #3: Blackburn Tools Roubo Frame Saw

10-07-2017 01:18 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 2 comments »

To make thin stock, I’ve planed down boards. 1”+ to 3/8-1/2” thickness for things. So much waste! I’ve tried using a hand saw to do this, but, well, you need only do it once to recognize how hard it is. A bandsaw is the obvious solution. Two years ago, it’s what I was focused on. But as I’ve come to love hand tools I find myself unexcited about a bandsaw. Another option, I discovered, is the Roubo frame saw. Both Blackburn Tools and Bad Axe make kits. These...

Shop Musings #1: Resaw by hand!? - You mean i could've been doing this the whole time!?

09-08-2014 06:21 PM by palaswood | 10 comments »

So quite awhile back I was blessed with a Walker Turner 14” bandsaw for just $100 bucks, which I lauded as my way to finally resaw all these cool boards I’ve ammassed- and to this day I still cant get the blade to stay on. Harumph! So I finally got fed up and said to myself, how hard can it be to resaw by hand!? Since I got my Disston D-7 5 1/2 ppi rip saw, I haven’t even tried! My previous attempts were so awful, that I was discouraged… I started with a test p...
