Thanks for the help. All responses have helped. At this point I’m designing a jig to work with my Steel City 14” Granite top band saw with 6” riser. The top is 16”x16”. Thinking I need a wider table or sled to right of blade to support the jig holding the chuck. John Wizard looks to solve this with 3 parts (sled, carriage and table) which allows the system to be used to handle a wide variety of band saw tasks.. I am trying to think through a Chuck holder only solution with 2 parts – a sled that uses guide slot in top and a jig that holds a chuck for either straight push cut sliding in guide slot and an option to cut an arc for doing wave bowls. Current thought is having guide slot in sled able to either slide or be locked to hold sled in postion. Attaching jig to sled via 2 bolts anchored to a in t track embeded in sled for straight cuts of varying distance from blade. To do arc cuts remove the 2 bolts, use a single bolt as a pivot point coming up through separate hole in sled thru a hole in a fixture in jig able to slide and be locked in different distances from blade to permit changing radius of arc and allow pivoting. Your thoughts?
