This blade changed how I feel about my bandsaw.

Like many of us woodworkers, I had a love hate relationship with my bandsaw. I bought a Jet 14 inch saw many years ago and quickly installed a riser block on it. I made the huge mistake of using the blade that came with it , as well as assuming the index pins on the block were set properly. After struggling with this setup for many years, I did some research and concluded I needed to tune this beast up. I did the whole co-planar thing(including filing the pins on the block to make that ...

Moffatt Task Lamp for Laguna 1412

Moffatt Task Lamp for Laguna 1412

10-17-2014 04:15 AM by smitty22 | 8 comments »

Moffatt 95050 Task Lamp, Incandescent/Halogen Lamp Type, Direct Mount Base Type, 24” Arm Length, 100 Watts, 1690 Raw Lumens. About $52 on Amazon. Here’s the Moffat task light mounted on the Laguna 1412 bandsaw, really works well. It’s very heavy duty, has a nice toggle on/off switch, takes a standard base 110v bulb, and made in USA. I used a Phillips 60-watt halogen flood bulb, nice ‘warm’ light which is kind to my old eyes! Best of all, it’s almost infinitely positionable to where ...

2 out of 3 IS bad!! - I'm an idiot!!

Well,I got burned by a hidden screw in a piece of wood I was cutting on my Grizzly 0513ANV band saw, It was the blade that came with the saw. Not a huge loss, but with no blade, I decided to order 3 blades from Sawblades.com. I ordered them Tuesday evening and received them on Thursday afternoon. QUICK Shipping!!! I went to resaw some African Blackwood for Knife scales for a friend. I had ordered Q201 3/4” 3 Tpi for resawing. I pulled it out of the box and guess what?? I...

Great Bandsaw Blades

Great Bandsaw Blades

This is a follow up to my praise of this resource http://www.orderbandsawblades.com. I have been using the blades now for a couple of weeks, and boy do they do the job. As I said before they are not flimsy they are sharp and rip well and cut effortlessly. I am using a 3/8×6tpi on my 10” Jet, prior blades including Lennox and Olsen failed and dulled quickly, and were costly for what they were. Service is great, shipping is cheap and fast. two 5’ 7 1/2 blades were about $15, shipping $5 in 2 da...

Installation issues ( it should "no" star for the moment)

Installation issues ( it should "no" star for the moment)

I went to buy this fence last Thursday to mount it on my HF band saw.I mounted it Saturday and yesterday Sunday.I am mechanic by trade and it is my job to make stuff work, no matter what.Well, this fence was a challenge. I was expecting an easy and straight forward installation, the installation was anything but——The table had two threaded holes in the front which lined up with fixation holes in the fence but contrary to what it is supposed to be , when using these holes the fenc...

After Reading MBS’ review I ordered the same blade. It arrived today while I was at work. Very well packaged and in good shape. After dinner, I went out to the shop and installed on my newer Craftsman 12” 89 1/2” blade (Similar to the Rikon). It is a great saw. After about 15 minutes of setup it was ready to go. Blade is noticeably quieter than the Timber Wolf blades I have been using. I followed the instructions and used a slower rate to break the blade in. The I ...

Crank Makes the Bansaw Fun to Use Again

Crank Makes the Bansaw Fun to Use Again

03-18-2011 09:15 PM by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

I was frustruated by the factory blade tensioning knob on my Jet 14” bandsaw. It didn’t extend above the cover of the saw, so you bang your knuckles every turn you make. Plus the factory knob took forever to tension the blade.The Big Horn crank is quick and easy to use. The crank is above the saw – so no more banged knuckles. It is so quick that I am no longer considering a Carter quick-release. The $15 price and free delivery on Amazon was icing on the cake.

First Re-Saw with this blade

First Re-Saw with this blade

07-23-2013 12:42 AM by Adam | 7 comments »

I had purchased a 1 hp King bandsaw for $80 off Kijiji (Canada’s Craig List) and gage it a complete overhaul and added a 6” riser kit to it. I purchased a Little Ripper Bandsaw blade for $36 from R&D Bandsaws are located in Brampton, Ontario, just 30 min from me. This is my first real experience re-sawing anything substantial with it and it worked very well. This is 12” of hard maple and the surface finish is not the best but that is because I kept on stopping a sta...

This baby really cuts

I have only done a little re-sawing but this bade cut 6” thick maple like butter. The finish was good but I am working to get it better. It went through the maple as fast as I could feed it.
