Just finished a resaw jig for my Delta bandsaw. It’s about 48” long and 24” wide. I made a metal frame of
1 1/2” angle iron, mitered & welded the corners and bolted it to the bandsaw table. The table and sled are made of 3/4” maple and the table itself is doubled with 3/4” maple. The support legs fold up inside the table for storage. You can see how the plywood table is fastened to the metal table. I cut blocks and slotted them & drilled 5/16” holes. The slots fit over the angle iron. I installed 5/16 nc studs in the wood to bolt the blocks to. That makes a very rigid fit. The first piece of wood I used as a test piece is a piece of holly.

Admit it, you like making the jigs FOR equipment more than making projects FROM equipment.

Very impressive. I have the same saw which I have used for many things but no re-sawing. This explains how I need to set it up. All I need is a log of interesting wood. I will save this as a reference project. Thanks.

Excellent! How much drift does your saw have and how did you compensate for it? I can’t tell from the pictures if the sled is parallel to the slot of if you have drift angle correction in there.
