  1. @lew, you probably already knew this, but Woodturners Wonders also now have CBN discs for the Worksharp 3000. Three discs with different grits, 6 grits total. They can be purchased separately or as a set. I got the set, but I haven't tried them out yet. If I remember, I'll post a review when I try them.
  2. I would like to call upon all of us to pray for Bree's recovery from this terrible disease, and for strength for her and her family as they travel this road. Pray however you feel is appropriate, according to your personal beliefs. Prayers do not belong to any one single religion, and the more that are offered up, then hopefully the better the outcome. Not trying to preach, just offering my own prayers and best wishes.
  3. Are you talking about the Driftmaster fence? If so, according to the Laguna web site, it is no longer available. The stock fence can be used in a high or low configuration, so I imagine that will be sufficient.
  4. It's 110. I'm not sure if it can be rewired for 240. I can check the manual for you and get back tomorrow if you want. Actually, I just pulled this off their web site: Dual Voltage Motor: 115/230, Pre-Wired 115 Volt
  5. John, I hope all is well at home now. Of course, that took priority. Family always comes first. I had no doubt you would be along sometime. That band saw is a beast. I haven't had the opportunity to use it on a project yet, but I know it will do whatever reasonable job I put to it. Laguna Customer support, well, that is a topic for another day.
  6. I want to thank everybody for all the enthusiastic and supportive comments left on this thread. From what I can see, I won't be needing to use it on the project I currently have in work, but I am looking forward to actually using it on a project. I hope it is as easy to use as it is to look at, but I'm sure it is. Thanks all.
  7. @Ron Altier, yes I am somewhat tall. 6'2" when I stand up straight. That "boulder" in front of me tends to pull me down though.
  8. I know the video you are talking about, and you're right, it is very helpful. I used it to set up my old bandsaw, and also the new one, and have no problem with blade drift since.
  9. No, I had a 14" Delta that I purchased from Woodworker's Supply back in 2002. I sold it to a friend of mine for $350 once I got this new one assembled and was satisfied with it.
  10. Well, I finally got the Laguna bandsaw from the fundraiser in December. It got delivered on Friday, Apr 2. It took me awhile to get it all together and set up properly. At least I hope it is set up properly. I made a cut to check blade drift, and I can't see any drift at all. And that is with the fence locked up square to the table with no adjustments. I am posting a picture of that cut, showing a marked line, and the cut line slightly off from the marked line to see it it wandered at all, and it looks perfect to me. The lighting in the picture of the bandsaw is weird, but that is becau
  11. Another one I wish I could have met. Ralph, from what I read in the obituary, I doubt you will be resting much, just more projects on a different plane of existence. Your contributions will live on.
  12. Did I confuse you? I was asking if you changed your profile picture to that of Lurch.
