    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 found a Jet 14" bandsaw (JWBS-14CS) on fb marketplace for $600 in my area. It looks in pretty good condition and includes closed stand, mobile base and extra blades. Is this a decent deal? I don't have a bandsaw yet and have been wanting to get one. I think a 14" is the size I want and I...

    I've been pounding my thumb since an early age but have all my digits, so far. Happily retired and own an old house built in the late 1870s. It was gutted out when purchased and I'm playing as time permits until it's gardening time. I've spent a number of years in Rhode Island wearing a nail...

    Does anyone own this bandsaw? If so, does anyone know how to remove the bottom wheel? I’m trying to put new tires on the wheels, but I can’t figure out how to get the lower wheel off. I’ve looked everywhere online, but nowhere have I found someone who discusses removing the bottom wheel nor...

    Reading through the bandsaw threads here. A lot of great info. Would appreciate feedback on recommendations for a saw that supports guitar building 1. Resaw depth - Guitar bodies are about 14" in width so bookmatched tops require a 7"-ish resaw. All the saws that I see do 6"... - There...

    I started doing woodworking as a hobby around one and a half year ago, mostly using driftwood. I really like it, and want to invest in this hobby and develop as a woodworker. So, I want to buy my first bandsaw, and I don't know what to look for. It should not be that heavy or expencive, since...

    I received this lathe last week as a gift. I am super excited about this but i'm having trouble identifying the model/specs. The serial number is 53-7452. Everything except a couple of handles on the tail stock are functional. Once I can identify it I can start order or fabricating parts for...

    I picked up this Delta Milwaukee bandsaw today, my first and only bandsaw, and have a couple of questions. In the 3rd image you see the gap between the cover plate and the body? Is that natural? Dust escape? The 4th image is the plug for the motor. Wtf is up with that, what I assume is some...

    Hi all, Consider me new in the band-saw world. Long story short - I can't cut a straight line to save my life, as the blade is all over the place. I don't think it's feed speed, as I can inch along and still have same problems. I have guides as close to the wood as possible, but doesn't mean...

    I just got my 14 inch Grizzly bandsaw, and after just one test run, I made a horrible mess with it. Sawdust is EVERYWHERE and I didn't realize til after that I needed to get a special dust collection tool. Any ideas on how this process works and what would be the cheapest method? I saw some...

    So I just finished watching the 35 minute Alex Snodgrass video on bandsaws. I found many parts of that video useful, although I had some things I want to bounce off of anyone here that has experience. 1.) He mentions how coplanar doesn't really exist, but every single source I see anywhere else...

    So for Christmas I got a beautiful anniversary edition grizzly bandsaw. The main problem thus far is that center cutout on the table where the blade goes. Are those things designed to be chipped? Does that hurt the blade? I was trying to do some curves last night in a 2x4 and there was a spark...

    So I am 15, I have been basically teaching myself how to woodwork with the occasional help from my pap (who is a very skilled craftsmen) but doesn't always have time to teach me, so I learn from forums, youtube and books. The only thing holding me back from getting to the next step is not being...

    I'm totally new to bandsaws. I recently purchased the biggest one that I could afford and that will fit in my little storage shack that doubles as a very small work shop: a 10" Craftsman Model 21400. I have about 20 minutes using it before I realized I needed to learn a lot more, so I watched...

    Hi, I'm looking for a 14 inch bandsaw and came across an ad on Craig's List: http://fortcollins.craigslist.org/tls/4955824480.html I've been doing wood work since high school - a long time ago, but I've never owned a bandsaw. My budget is $200 max for a used machine, so he's a little over my...

    Newbie to the board. 3-4 years experience as a hobbyist. And one thing I have learned is that a good, new, middle-of-the-road tool is fun for a while but pretty soon I wish I had bought the best. Budget tools are budget for a reason. I get that. I have some tool regret. But we're all on a...

    I have a Sears Craftsman 12” Two Speed Band Saw (approx.. 20 years old). Haven’t used it for anything substantial in the last several years other than incidental use. Started working on a couple of projects last week and the saw was performing just fine until yesterday when the blade stopped...

    Check this band saw ? You think it's worth the bucks. http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/tls/4330860210.html . I am not getting it due to its location . I have enough powered saw already but thinking I want to get smaller saw like this one in the future.
