    I'm building out my first shop right now and have been meaning to buy a bandsaw for a while. I came across a CL post today for a 12" Delta for $20. Seems to be in decent condition and I wanted to get your guys opinion on whether it's worth taking a flyer on this thing or if it's just junk. I...

    I saw this for sale near me. He's asking $900 and says it's in mint condition. Comes with a fence and mitre. 12 inch resaw capability, 1.25 HP 110V motor. Opinions?? If I don't get this I'll probably just keep saving up for the Laguna 1412.

    I am an avid hobby guy, and I have been trying to do some precision cuts with butternut, an incredibly difficult hardwood. I want to buy a mid range band saw. I have no idea what kind of AMPs are needed for cutting through dense hardwood, or what kind of blades would be good to use. I see a lot...

    I'm new to woodworking and I'm trying to get a handle on what tools work best. I inherited a handful of saws and power tools from my father which I've used for working around the house but never for creative woodworking. Right now I'm building up my skills on some of the starter projects in Nick...

    I'm new-ish to woodworking, and I'm looking to make a purchase. I already have a good combination miter saw, and a router with a stand. I'm thinking about buying a table saw or a band saw, or both -- a cheaper version of one and a nicer of the other. Looking around, it seems like the advantage...

    Hi there! I'm a newbie, fair warning, be gentle :icon_smile: Here's what I'm trying to accomplish; I have a 1 inch dowel that I would like for the end to be a semi-circle. So imagine the dowel, looking at it from a birds eye view, straight down, and the end is not flat, but a perfect...

    Dad wanted a dresser-top box for 'stuff' and sent me the specs. It's sort of a band saw box, sort of something else. The front middle and sides are palm wood, the interior is a mix of birch, walnut and plywood. The lid is made from the waste from the compartment underneath. Some over sanding...

    Hi all, Needed to get the band saw fired up and learn me some skills. Laminated some plywood and Bolivian Rosewood as well as some Mopani to make these things. Why did I choose this wood? Because it looked cool and made me sound like an artisan when the words rolled off my tongue. The...

    As many of you know I am in the process of restoring a 1955 wood cutting band saw. Parts of it are cleaned up and ready for paint so I am wondeering what you folks use for paint. I know Rustoleum seems to be popular on another forum I belong to. Sherwin-Williams seems to be another. What do most...

    I recently purchased a 10inch craftsman band saw. It works great and is an amazing piece of machinery, but it uses a 70.5 inch blade. This size blade is NOT STANDARD and I cannot find them anywhere... Obviously they can be ordered online, but its always nice to have a local spot to pick up...

I have had them stored for the last year in the basement of my house on my farm. However, I have to sell that property now and need to sell the tools/equipment. I...

    I took a big step yesterday and ordered a band saw. This will be my first major power tool, and I am sure I have much to learn about it. I am looking for recommendations on books, web sites, videos, and tutorials that will help me to learn about setting up and using the band saw.

    I'm looking into the Grizzly G0513X2 bandsaw which has a slight sale going on, cost is $1050. The G0513X2F is identical except that it has a foot brake. I've never used a brake before and it's $200 more for this feature. Should I even consider it at that cost? Guess it depends how long the...

    I mainly make skateboards, and I've wanted for years to make my own veneers. I managed to get a free thickness planer that I used to make a few veneers, but it was pretty beat already and didn't last long. Now that it's dead, I'd really like to be able to resaw my veneers, and a bandsaw seems...
