    would like to see a plan for sawing a circle on the band saw. If no plan available, give dimensions on the air.

    I have a 17inc bansaw that is 110 or 220 , I have been using it as a 110, but I fell like if I try to cut anything 3ft long or taller then 10″ I’m going to pop the 110 converter.. .. I plane on using it to re-saw big pieces and smaller one. and I have 4 different blades for other work. should I just convert it to the 220?if so will it be harder to cut smaller pieces?

    Will this be available as a recording afterwards? I planned to attend but am called away to something more urgent.

    Since I won’t be able to attend but can see that recordings remain available, I’ll add my one question. Namely, recommended tips when going from raw logs? I recently cut a log into slabs and have much more width variation than I expected. My plan is to plane before completing the split of the slabs further.

    Assuming a budget of $3,000 what would be your choice of a bandsaw? It would be for resaw and other shop duties.

    Can you resaw dimensional flat dawn lumber to create 1/4 sawn material? Or is table saw better?

    Do you prefer to cut the piece on the inside next to the fence or outside away from the fence?

    How thin can you reasonable expect to resaw using a band saw? Does this vary by wood species or height of the cut?

    I have an old Shop Smith Mark 5 with 11 inch band saw, use it all the time but likely needs a good cleaning and greasing

    If you do not see any drift with your blade and saw, is there any reason/need for a single-contact fence?

    what is the issue indicated by the symptom of the Timber wolf blade bending and making a curved cut (top to bottom)

    I had to cut my walnut tree down and I want to cut some of the smaller limbs into short planks. Can I do that on a band saw? I have not gotten one yet and would also ask which saw would be the best for that and other work like that?

    I have a new Laguna 14″ bandsaw and for the life of me I can’t correct my resawing problems. I use a 5/8″ 4 TPI blade. I have corrected for drift and tried using both single point or the fence. I can get it to work with soft woods like pine. But when cutting maple or walnut it drifts off center or I get a curve (is that a barrel cut?).

    Should you take the tension off of the blade when not using the saw? Watching from Holtwood, Pa

    Watching someone resaw the right way is always better then trial and error!

    When re-sawing, would using a magnetic fingerboard to hold the bottom of the board next to the fence make any difference over not using one?

    If you measured that board just cut after the angle was adjusted would the two ends be equal.?? Thanks

    You are working with short boards. What tips/tricks would you recommend if you wanted to work with (say) 6 foot boards?

    Reply

    why is it important to have veneer on outside – you will have to re-adjust every cut. if feed on inside then no re-adjusting necessary…but I am sure I am missing something!
