    Hi everybody! Has somebody used the Makita LB 1200 F bandsaw? Ive been thinking of buying a deasent bandsaw and Im not particulary interested in machines made in PRC. Oh shure I have some power handtools from china but a bandsaw is different. It should cut 6-8" and it should have power 0.75-1.0kW.

    I made a bunch of these up for use around the band saw. They are small enough they can be controlled fairly well. I think of them as Finger Push Sticks. I've gotten so used to using them, I feel like I'm missing something when I turn the band saw on without one near by. These should also...

    I have to admint I printerd off this design so long ago that I am not sure where I got it, but I put together this bandsaw fence this week. The two 10-24 inserts towards the top of the fence allow for auxiliary fences, stops and things like that. The fence tilts about ¼" each way to allow for...

    Hello, I am new to this site. I have a question. I purchased a used 14" Ram Bandsaw. I am having trouble with the blade coming off the wheels and damaging the the blade. I think the wheels are co-planer. I can turn the wheel by hand and appears to be OK, but when I turn it on within 10-20...

    They say old arn is a slippery slope So, while perusing Craigslist, I found this Delta 1945 DP220 drill press. I had to have it after restoring a Delta metal/wood band saw. Our Grand daughter was riding her horse in barrel racing competition, so I dropped my Wife off 1/2 the way there and...
