It made me think of the bread slicer I have seen in an old bakery. It had bandsaw blades spaced 3/4 apart for the length of the loaf. The problem with that theory is this machine would have removed fingers, and couldn't have made the slices that went all the way around all of the fingers. The only explanation I can think of is they were inflicted by another human. That's assuming the photo was actually real.

Well, the original post was actually about how to cut straight lines WITHOUT using a table saw.

But it's all good now ... the picture's been removed, I apologized (I don't know why, now) and you can all go back to warning the kid to heed his parents without damaging his self esteem.

Now, this video isn't meant to scare you and steer you away. It is for learning purposes only.....https://youtu.be/u7sRrC2Jpp4
That video is very impressive, thanks for sharing.

I am a urologist. A few years ago, I had a patient in the ER who was struck with a kickback. It ruptured his left testicle so completely there was nothing to put back together. It looked like a squashed ripe fig. All I could do was remove it.

I personally have had a kickback that hit me to the left of my naval. It left an excoriation and a large bruise. Felt like I had been shot.

Get a decent blade for the bandsaw !!!!!!! If you've got a sharp bandsaw blade and it's set up correctly, it should have no problem ripping timber. If you've got longer lengths to rip back consider setting up an out feed table so you dont struggle trying to keep the last bit pushed down.

Sorry Jake, your post kind of took off in a bunch of directions that are not much help to you.

The table saw question is between your Dad and you, for now you will have to live with what he thinks best.

One of the things about woodworking is that there are so many different ways and work arounds to accomplish what needs to be done. Keep on trucking with what you are allowed to use, enjoy the journey, you are at the opposite end of the spectrum of many of us here, I for one sometimes wish I was back in your situation.

There just aren't enough ways to express OUCH sufficiently enough..
A while back in a body shop I was using a 5" high speed air grinder, the kind with heavy paper type backing and like a dumbass I let it freewheel till a piece flew off and attacked my man parts.. I was almost certain that I was going to be the next John Wayne Bobbit.. I crawled to the can expecting the worse possible outcome, but it was just a bruise..nothing even close to a crushed nut..

Jake, you'll have plenty of opportunities to mangle yourself later in life and when you do remember this thread..

I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
Impressive, huh?

I honestly find table saws a little frightening, so still don't own one. I do all my rip cuts with a band saw or a circular saw with a Kreg rip fence. I clean up these cuts with a hand plane. If you're doing relatively small projects, you could always rip with a hand saw, then clean up the cut with a plane. You'll get plenty of exercise! Just make sure you leave plenty of room for waste on either side of the cut, as it'll probably wander at some point. I can remember being 15, and wanting to do things that cost money, and being very frustrated when I didn't really have money to buy anything, or transportation to go to the store! Just do what you can now and be patient. But if you do make it to a lowes with your folks, think about getting another band saw blade. They can be pretty inexpensive. You just need to know what size blade to get. For ripping, use a blade with a low tooth count - 3-4tpi, and as wide as your saw will accept - 3/8" to 1/2". Even if your band saw doesn't have a fence, you can just clamp a straight board to the table and you've got a rip fence! That way you can also adjust for blade drift if you can't adjust the wheels of the bandsaw to fix it. Good luck!
