18" Woodcutting Band Saw
Here's an 18" wood cutting band
saw I built from the ground up. It was built almost entirely with materials
from a local
metal salvage yard and items already on hand. It features an all steel welded frame, built in work light, ball bearing upper
and lower blade guides, and a blade tensioning system that allows the blade to be de-tensioned with just a lever. The main
frame for the band saw is 6" x 3" square steel x 3/16" thick , this was found at the salvage yard. The exterior of the saw
is 1/2" plywood that has been sanded , primed and painted.
Update: I don't have
any plans for the bandsaw (sorry). At one time I had pictures of the complete
My old internet server ( Aerocom ) went out of business without any warning and I didn't have the
pictures backed up.
