A DIY bandsaw for the shop !
« on: May 22, 2017, 06:40:11 AM »
I've published a new page for my blog that could be of interest.

http://pigi-machinering.blogspot.it/2017/05/a-diy-bandsaw-for-shop.html

Here the basic arrangement.

I hope I'm not violating any rule by publishing the link. As I told it's easier for me to keep everything inside a post.
If I'm violating I will try to arrange differently.

Cheers

Pigi

Very nice work!  :thumbup: And a great write-up too.

Maybe a photo here of the finished article to inspire others to click the link? Just a suggestion...
Cheers!

It looks very finished compared to my work....usually all the stuff I make takes few iterations and rebuilds and if it works fine it might get paint in about five years.

Links and videos are fine. But, Like Ade sates, a picture(s) and text help encourage people to look. And as we are a discussion board, be prepared for discussion here about the link.

Looks good!

I built the same one from the Model Engineers Workshop magazine, it was was in one of the very early issues. must be abouut 20yrs ago now. and it gets a lot of use. Made a few slight mods to it in the building stage,  only thing was i built 5 at the same time for four other friends. no idea if the others are still in use i lost contact with them. Ill see if i can get some pics posted over the next few days.
