Floating Band Saw Cutting Guide / Feather Board

Once in a while, I find I need support material near the blade and a fence or re-saw guide just doesn’t feel right. In the course of one of my [fortunately not well known] notorious goof off sessions (does that qualify as a paradox?), I made...

Powermatic Band Saw Extension Table

I’ve made several 30” circles using my circle cutting jig. Each time, it’s been a struggle holding the right side of the jig, with the material on it, flush with the table. I thought about making a cart, but that seemed like a lot of material,...

Powermatic Band Saw Light Modification

Stock, the 14" Powermatic band saw light must bend from behind the machine to the front. Doing so really stresses the goose-neck supporting the light. Even when adjusted, it never seems positioned quite right for a good view of the cut. Too, the...

Bandsaw question

I had a first today while using the bandsaw. Working on a very small piece of wood and the blade broke. The break appears not to be a defective blade because it appears to be all new where it broke. Can anyone recommend a cleaner for the...

band saw help

I was about to order a new band saw. I was all set to get the Grizzly G0555 and went online to order it, then noticed the G0513ANV is on sale. It’s actually cheaper than the G0555X right now (because of free shipping). I know the old adage “buy...

Band saw

It’s the time of year when I start planning what to buy in the spring. DC is already on the list, but I plan to add a band saw. I have been scouring craigslist for several months with no luck so I am going to buy a new one. Grizzly is in my price...

Band Saw Angle Cutting Jig

After seeing what others had done using three different colors of wood to make 3-D patterns out of wood, I thought I’d try my hand at it. To aid in the process, I made this jig for my band saw. Of course, one could vary it a bit for the table...

For anyone doubting how strong Hot Hide glue is

I am working on a contemporary credenza/console design. I decided to use ash. After milling the rough sawn boards I discovered one was cut pretty close to the crotch. Past experience should have taught me that no matter what I do it won’t stay...
