Hi all ,got a problem with my bandsaw.Had her a couple of years now,but never truly been happy with it.Its only a hobby rated saw ,but still cost me the equilvant of $350.I do not use it everyday but no matter what i do to the set up it will not cut any sort of reasonable curve even a slow S curve.I tried all the usual things Tension ,Tracking,Thrust bearing clearance,and a new quarter inch blade 6tpi.The blade allways veers to the left when trying to attempt a curve,got to be tension i thought .Tightened the tension a couple of turns and bang the blade snapped.So after i changed my underwear went back to it but still the same problem cannot understand it guys do you think i need a better quality blade?Or a new bandsaw?Would like to have a bash at a bandsaw box [no chance at the moment]so i got the bandsaw blues guys.HELP"
Ken commented on his British Sports car. A few years ago at the (world famous) Iola, Wisconsin car show, I was parked next to a little MG. My 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury looked like a monster next to that little car. Always had an eye for the '50's MG's.
A comment on cutting plexi-glass/acrylic glass on band saw. Works perfectly. I always used the scoring and snap method. Decided to try the band saw. You can trim an 1/8th of an inch off if necessary.
I recently made 13 bird feeders and cutting the glass for those was a joy, on the band saw.
BTW I use my Kreg Jig for joinery in my bird feeders, not little brad nails like others.
I'd hope the birds feel special, that their feeders are held together with Kreg Joinery.
Hi fins, no one in the UK will let you try a powered saw before you buy[health and safety]so you pays your money and takes your chance.
