BJ, I understand why you would want to have the switch set up but isn't it also just as easy to gas the machine when you don't really want to and ...... eewwwwww I don't even like to think about it! Just thinking out loud.......

Hi Bob

You'er Welcome

Pedal Footswitch (Deadman Pedal type)
Here's one that's a bit lower in price, I didn't find one on the Lee Valley web site , they do have the air type one but I didn't care for that type.

Hi Corey

I eat alot of beans but I don't think I can stop it by gasing it... LOL , I can stop some people in there tracks but band saw is a hard one LOL LOL

It's true you can start the machine if you put your foot on the switch but I always just switch the main switch off when I done or I going to walk off for a bit.
The main switch is the main over ride to the band saw and I flip it off or on until I'm set to cut the stock.
It takes a bit of a learning cuve to get the hang of it ,putting your foot down or up to run the machine but once you get the hang of it,,easy

Deadman Style Pedal Footswitch
Now you can operate your router or other power tools with hands-free convenience.
The Billy Pedal is a spring loaded safety switch that turns off the tool when you lift your foot off the pedal.
Simply plug our foot switch into your electrical outlet, then plug your tool into the Billy Pedal.

Maybe some day they will come out with one like the hot dog table saw, that's to say it will cut wood but if it's a hot dog ( finger) the machine will lock up, I don't know it works but it will lock the blade on the table saw.

Isn't it just. It's been quite a while since we've seen Tony, I suppose that he's flat out keeping up with demand for his exquisite boxes. I did download plans from his web site some time ago but my lack of band saw skills made me give up any further attempts.

Robert, I just love when a new member browses the forum and finds some of these great projects....

Thanks for bringing these to the fore.
