I’m pretty excited about building a bandsaw from the woodgears plans. I have the plans for the 14” and the 16”. I also have a 14” delta clone bandsaw with a bent frame. The rest of the parts particularly the wheels are in good shape. I’m thinking about using parts from this saw to build a wooden framed saw.

My question is what parts, if any, I should use from the delta clone. These are the ones I’m considering.

-upper tensioning/tracking mechanism
-blade guides

If you’ve built a woodgears bandsaw, what things would you change? Would you build the 16” or the 14”? Do you think I should just do the whole thing according to the plans for the experience?
