Default Re: Band Saw

Thanks. I didn't know how much I missed it until the old one was stolen. I had the cheap Harbor Freight model lashed to the sawhorse legs out on the front porch and someone made off with it. That was what taught me the joys of feeding the work instead of the saw.

You can cut on a line because you can see the line and the blade. Genius.

Being able to do an accurate cut means you don't have to spend a huge amount of time grinding to fit. Saws are much faster than abrasives.

And since I don't have a lot of space here (small Kaufman & Broad tract house) I can't really get into a proper stationary floor mount saw. Just not enough room.

And this one will get taken inside when I'm done because I won't have to un-bungee it ever again -
The only thing in my garage with 4 wheels is the lawnmower
