Anyone have this thing and is it worth the price?

Anyone have a simple plan for a bandsaw fence for a Craftsman 12 inch saw?

Hey Gary,, the dust bucket is nothing more than a device used to contain the dust and port it to a dust collector. Worth it is relative I think. If you can afford it, yep. If you can't make one..Kreg makes em in 2 sizes/configurations.

Which 12" saw do you have? I've the model prior to the new square design. Let me know, and i'll post ya a few pics of the fence/table addition i made for mine..

Actually BJ, I posted it as a topic for discussion as I already had my RT cabinet under construction. As for my opinion, I'd shy away from a sheet metal bucket because I'd expect it to amplify noise rather than damp it. I'm making mine from wood and expect it will damp noise and vibration.

Since I haven't yet made the door for my cabinet this is just conjecture and this is just my $0.02...

Opinions are like noses.. everybody has one.. and some really smell!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

The saw is model 113.243310 complete with stand and has a sander attachment. The manual was printed in 1982. It takes an 80" blade. The cover on one side is made of plastic and snaps off for maintenance and it has a vacuum port at the back.

It takes an 80" blade. I had the tilt head w/cabinet model.

I often thought of making a better fence for mine. Never did come with a workable solution. The closest I got was having a T slide in the track with some kind of clamp to hold it.

Here ya go Gary... nothing fancy.. and this fence is too tall as it nears the blade and the guides are down, but nothing a lil "groove" couldn't fix. the cams make it easy to tighten down. Honestly, for smaller saws like ours, using a standard fence such as this one, may not do the trick due to blade drift. Anymore I do all my resawing freehand. Once you get the hand of it, its pretty easy actually, just so long as you keep the board parallel to the blade at all times. A narrow resaw guide placed just in front of the blade can be very helpful.

Hope this gives you something to work with..

Bill

I looked at the Rockler dust bucket when I was building my most recent router table. To be honest, it looked cool, but I can see spending that kind of money on a sheet metal box. While I haven't built it yet, I'm planning on making an enclosure for the router out of 1/4" ply - which should be quieter than metal.

I agree, but consider 1/2 MDF instead, it's even quieter and gives you more beef to secure your dust collection fitting. Don't forget to include some openings to ensure proper air flow for dust pickup.
