Topic tags/keywords: teach lersson band saw

Moving into band saw work and have read a few photo books on it but would like a “private class” with an experienced woodworker in my workshop in Cleveland Park (near Zoo & Uptown Theater) in Washington, DC on my new Jet 14” band saw. The lesson would be my first use of the machine, so

-Equipment check to ensure all is ready to go;
-Safety procedures
-Use of fences;
-Changing & tightening blade;

I understand a private session at $75 / hour might be more than fair.
