Thank you Baileigh! WBS-14 on the way.

I want to extend another huge thank you to Baileigh for sponsoring a fun and exciting contest. I also want to again thank the members here that supported me through the build and voted for me.

I've been talking with Shane this week and I'm very excited to have this bad boy heading my way:



http://wood.baileighindustrial.com/v...and-saw-wbs-14

This is going to be a huge upgrade in my shop, replacing a 10" craftsman POS. I already have an inaugural build tinkering around in the ole noggin that will test out this BS in a number of ways. I'll be posting a build thread once that gets rolling.

I can't wait to get my hands on this saw and get to work, you can expect to be hearing a lot about it in the near future.

Sorry for the delay on posting this update, but I just got done with a 75 hour week that has me a bit red eyed.

Looking forward to your review of this saw. I've been looking to upgrade my bandsaw and I like the looks of this one. Congrats on the win btw.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Excellent work! When I browsed their site and played the, "what would I get if I won a $1600 prize" game, that was my choice as well! I look forward to hearing how you like it!

As I have made it known already, this was one of my choices! I eagerly await to hear how you like it, and to see the review of it.

I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.

Congratulations on the new BS. So, It's costing you nothing? How about shipping?

Sweet! I too was eyeing and dreaming of getting that saw if I were to win. Hey, I can dream. I've been using a 12" Craftsman that I desperately want to upgrade from. My birthday is in 2 months so we'll see.

Enjoy it. I look forward to seeing what you create with it.

Another huge thank you to Baileigh for their generosity.

No cost to me - perfect price point for the contest prize. Baileigh has free shipping on all their woodworking equipment, luckily that applies to contests as well!

I'm sure I'll pick up a few blades for it, but I want to see how the stock blade is first.

That saw looks freakin sweet.

Shoot - you could end up milling your own lumber with something that size if you wanted to.

Got the call from FedEx that it is waiting for me to pick up at the terminal. Unfortunately work has me way out of town and I can't pick it up until tomorrow, can't wait to get it up and running! I'll be sure to post lots of info once I get it running and have a chance to put it through its paces.

Are you planning on resawing with it? I was wondering how well it would do slicing up a log.... I am actually going to be cutting down some sizable "branches" on two of my maples. It certainly would be nice if to know if this saw could resaw that type of wood...

Can't wait to see your review. Of course, I'm guessing you might have purchase some more blades for it, for different purposes.

My new Baileigh WBS-14 has landed safely in my shop! I made a video and started the upload this morning as I was leaving for work, but when I got to work it looks like the upload failed Ė Iíll try again tonight and Iíll post that up as soon as youtube cooperatesÖ

Anyway, picked the bandsaw up at the FedEx terminal yesterday. Rain stopped long enough to get it loaded and get it home. Even if it was raining it was packed so well it wouldnít have been a problem. The crate arrived without any damage, and we got it loaded into my truck. The tall crate was strapped to a full size pallet which you canít see but kept it upright nicely. I strapped the bajezus out of it as itís a little top heavy but it didnít budge on the short ride home. Probably could have laid it down but they went to so much trouble to pack it upright I thought it best to keep it that way.



Once I got home I slid it off the truck with some ramps and took the tall crate off the pallet. My folks were over for dinner so my dad helped me roll this down to my shop Ė thankfully I have my shop in a walkout basement, stairs would have been tricky. With all the packaging the crate weighed 385lbs (according to fedex packing slip). Heavy but manageable with 2 people and a sturdy hand truck.



Got everything unpacked and ran out of time last night so wasnít able to do any assembly. But I must say Iím very impressed with the saw, very heavy duty with excellent fit and finish. Also looks well designed. Once I get it assembled Iíll do a video/review with all the details.



Donít mind my shop, Iím moving everything around at the moment to improve the layout Ė so itís cleaned up but a mess in terms of machines...

Thanks again to Baileigh and particularly Shane Ė very excited to have the saw and canít wait to get it put together and put it to work. Also thanks again to everyone here on the forum. Fun contest for sure!

Iíll post my ďunboxingĒ video tonight and lots more soon.

Definitely planning to use it for resawing, actually the primary reason I chose to get it. Not sure ill be doing much with green wood or logs but who knows, it certainly looks capable, I may try it just to see how it goes :-).

It came with a 3/4" blade, looked like 3 TPI but I haven't measured to be sure, I'll try resawing with the included blade and see how it does, I'll post a video of that once I get to that point.

It looks great in the shop, now we just need to get a "tough guy" picture of you next to the saw. Maybe rip the sleeves off your shirt and apply some temporary tattoos for good measure.......

Nice video, Ben. That really does look like one sweet, sturdy band saw. I can't wait to see it in action. Nice color scheme too. First impressions, like you said, are quite favorable. Congratulations again. You scored a beautiful machine.

Baileigh RULES!
