  1. 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

    Bowl jig

    I made a jig to cut my blank round before I put it on the lathe.
  3. Do not cut bowling balls in half on a band saw. They will ruin the blade quick.
  4. So in cutting my last bowl blank my bandsaw motor finally decided to crap out and go. It wont even cut the big three inch blanks anymore. Which is a minor incontinence. I did really like the ryobi bandsaw. I got a good run out of it for what I paid for at least. Did everything I needed it to do to get me started. I can't afford to spend on an expensive bandsaw sadly how ever I found one that I think I can manage and for the price. Either way I'm considerieng getting this one. The smaller saws work better for me in the long run of things. I am looking at the wen 9 inch bandsaw this

  6. Well either way, I'm starting a NEW project on a bowl.... This one will be my mothers birthday gift although it will be late I think she'll be happy with it when its finished up. I've never tried working with Birtch wood before so I wanted to try it. Fortunately home depot has plenty in stock. I bought a 12 foot section of board at 5 dollars a foot. That crap AINT cheap. I cut the board down to size. I took one of the bowls I had previously done. After the glue finished up drying. I went down drew out the lines. I'm still going to finish letting the glue cure up on the the lathe. Its
  7. I bought an old 10 inch Craftsman bandsaw. It gets the job done but I stink at cutting straight lines. I have watched some videos on making a fence but was curious if any of you have your own and what was your experience. Thanks.
  8. Have had a problem with bandsaw table slipping out of level every time I use it to saw lathe blanks. Have now thought for a while could put a stiffener in to stop this. Finally got to it. Two piece brace as prop and bracket to stop sideways movement. The brace has a slot cut at end to fit the web under table.
  9. Hi everyone, glad I found this forum. I have a 1932 Walker Turned Driver Line model 700 Band Saw. Its complete except the top adjusting mechanism has a broken bracket. I have attached some photos. If anyone here knows where I can find a replacement part or maybe get this one repaired I would be in your debt. As I said in my intro, I love restoring old woodworking tools. I spent some time on OWWM but they have this thing about even mentioning Craigslist in any way shape or form. I have looked there but no success at all. So I'm thinking new faces and new ideas. Many thanks for an
  10. I made this in my tiny little shop (man, I’d really LOVE to have a window). Two are #4 hard maple shaker boxes with African mahogany tops. Also made two #3 shaker boxes from walnut with butternut tops. Hit them with some natural danish oil and after they dry for about 3 days or so, I’ll shoot them with about 4 coats of a satin poly. The hardest part for me is milling the stock to 1/16th of an inch....I seen to be able to get a better result on my table saw instead of the bandsaw....anyhow, I hope all youse guys are staying safe and healthy! I can’t wait until this comes to an end.
  11. Well I'm not sure if this belongs here but...I've had on/off problems with my Laguna 14-12 since I bought it at Woodcraft in Richmond Virginia and Laguna has been contacted several times. This recent issue seems to crop up from time to time where when changing the blade is difficult to the point it won't stay on the wheels for even several hand revolutions. Last night was one of those times. I had the 1/2" blade on and went to install the 1/4". I released the tension and took the 1/2" blade off, put the 1/4" on and went to tension the blade. I turned the wheel by hand less that 2 r
  12. Issues with my Craftsman 113. 27350 bandsaw......way to much shaking going on....drive wheel wobbles.....tore the thing down today.... Removed both the belt pulley and the lower wheel.. 2 wheels, only found one key stock....one for the belt pulley was MIA. Large snap ring holding the shaft in place on the belt side.. Metal cap swings down out of the way, once the shaft is out... (nice and cleaned up..) to get the shaft out, I had to remove these two bolts..which went right back in as soon as I could....hate losing parts. Shaft "looked" good when it
  13. Just a little tech tip, the one thing I absolutely dislike about my Shopsmith bandsaw, is later on in their infinite wisdom, they decided to remove the convenient band saw access door knobs with allen screws. So when you need to get in and change a blade, you have to break out the allen wrench and unloosen three screws, a tad time consuming, not horribly, but why? So I was goofing around a couple days ago and just happened to look at the table saw fence knobs, and a rare flash of light materialized in my lil ol pea brain, and I thought to self, hey self, those fence knobs sure look like t
  14. I watch a lot of turning videos on youtube. In one of Carl Jacobson videos he said he cuts the heart out of a log and paints the ends with basic paint and doesn't get any cracking. Since I got the new bandsaw I figured I would give it a try. I made a jig to hold the log and made some bowl blanks real fast and easy. They will turn a 9 inch to 10 inch bowl.
  15. Picked up this old Powermatic a couple years ago after watching it sit beside the burn pile behind a local high school shop for most of a year. The weather was really starting to become unfriendly to it so I inquired about its status and was told that it was out of service permanently due to a problem with the foot brake making it unsafe to use by students and a new one had replaced it. They only would release it to me if I signed a waiver releasing them of responsibility which I did. After a man vs. saw episode even involving my wife’s help to get it trailered, it came home. The brake was
  16. Had to resaw one of these things.. Cut one down to 26" long ( less to resaw) then marked it for a 2" or so wide cut. Set the extras aside.. After I had resawn the slab off. Then made a bunch of lines, to make 1/2" thick slats. I had one of the sides to the rocker on the bench, to lay out mortises for the back rails. I left the rails sit in place, as a spot to lay the slats as each came off the bandsaw... A little rough? We do have ways to deal with "rough" I laid the slats out to get the spacings, and see just how many slats I would need
  17. Meandered down to the shop this evening.....decided to at least try a few things out.....tried the Aldi's crosscut saw to make four pieces of pine parts... It do cut fast, and it even tried to cut me thumb. Got two small holes. It had hopped up out of a cut. The 1x6 I am using was a little out of....focus. Needed a plane to bring things back into line.. I planed the two matching sides together, edge grain and end grain. I wanted them to match, and be at least close to square...Plane didn't do too bad on the end grain..

  18. Just saw this in the latest ezine from Woodworker's Journal- The entire article is here- http://www.woodworkersjournal.com/monarch-gauge-promises-simpler-band-saw-blade-tensioning/
  19. Had a chance to get in the shop so I put together some scraps I had to make this band saw box.The bulk of the box is African mahogany with a strip of cherry down the middle. As things moved along I got a bit ahead of myself and started to cut the drawers out of the top slider before cutting off the front and back . Found enough cherry to make the front and back of the top slider using the damaged piece as a template. The handles are black walnut.
  20. In cleaning up my shop after 6 months of large projects I came across my Rikon 10 inch fence which had managed to get stuffed behind it. Sure I probably don't use it much, but is nice to have when needed. So I looked for a place to put this thing. As I am doing so I remind myself this only works if you can have it easy to get to. So in thinking about placement this was a primary concern. My friend gave me 30 or so of these magnets they use to install a diaper on the forklifts at his work. They don't like oil on the new concrete. Seems they just chunk the old ones. The new
  21. Today I made a band saw box out of a piece of domestic cherry fire wood. Herb
  22. Need some help from the folks. A couple years ago I purchased an Enco 199-9001 14" band saw for $40. It needed cleaned up and a trunion. Called Enco got the trunon and this thing worked pretty good. Now the upper guide block ( pot metal ) broke. Called Enco, the model and all parts are discontinued. Went to Lowes, looked at the Porter Cable one they carry, looked close enough to swith the complete assembly and I would be back in business. Looked up all the parts, made a list and called the local Dewalt repair center, talked to a nice guy on the phone, gave him the list and most of the parts we
  23. Hi guys. I love old stuff namely old machinery. I’m getting this Parks bandsaw from a friend and wondering what anyone can tell me about it. Age? What’s original? What isn’t? Ok to paint it or worth more not to? Cateloges out there? Etc? thanks in advance! Chris
  24. Hello All, I am new to the forum and I am happy to be part of the club. I love to restore antiques and decided to tackle my second band saw project. My first was a 1941 Craftsman which I use on a regular basis. I picked up this saw from a friend who is buying a motor home and becoming a snowbird. He had owned the saw since he picked up from hid dad about 40 years ago. I have been told that this is a Parks 20" band saw that was made around the turn of the century. It is made of cast iron and weighs about three hundred pounds. The original wood bed rotted many years ago and was replaced wit
