Band Sharpener

I started the day sharpening bands on my home made sharpener.
I built this awhile back and just took the pics with my phone (sorry for the quality) and thought I would post them. Sharpened a couple and started sawing and about 2 hours, the 16 hp briggs started knocking. I'll tear it down tommorow and see what's up.

That'll work

That stinks

I heard an old boy say something years ago about sawmilling and it stuck in my head "If you're not broke down, you are about to be" I don't know if that is just pessimistic or realistic.

I have often though about building my own band sharpener I have extra chainsaw sharpeners laying around. I have used one to do a few bands, but it was jury rigged on the bench-freehand.

Good luck with the Briggs.

Nice sharpener setup. I guess you're probably turning wrenches by now. Hope it's not serious, but anytime you have a knock it usually is. Maybe it's just a slipped bearing and you're getting to it before the crank is too far gone to polish or turn.

I tore it down, and it was the connecting rod on one side, so i'll rebuild it or try to find a 20 hp honda to put on. A little more hp would help.

Daren, that applies also to water well drilling.

If you know what you are doing with mechanics I had someone suggest to me to buy an old motor bike pull the engine out of it and then sell the parts, he thought I should be able to do this for no money by the time I sold the parts (he is a very good mechanic). Though I had already bought 2 2nd hand honda gx390 13hp engines that I am going to double up and here comes 26hp! I found plenty of these popped up on ebay but not many other honda's. Just a thought.
