Another Day A further Project

Band SawI went to pick it up one evening with my son and got speaking to the owner who mentioned that he by no means used the band saw but that he had gotten it on a trade 3 years earlier. He also told me that the original owner told him that each time he plugged in the band saw that it would blow the breaker. I figured that worst case situation it would just need a new motor (which I had a lot of lying around). I agreed to the purchase and hauled it property.

On some sawmills we would run as high as 7,000 fpm. This triggered some high friction and when the bandsaw blade ran into some adverse knots or really hard places the blade would reduce badly. On the very same sawmill we slowed the band to five,500 and the difficulty with sawing disappeared. After you have demarcated the cutting line, retain a firm and steady pace as you move the stock against the blade. Far more than a security point, this is to make certain a precise vertical reduce you will not get a single if the stock is off to a side of the reduce line.

These tooth designs have a significantly less aggresive zero rake angle that resists tooth strippage in particular on smaller sized work pieces. So off to the concert we went. Considering the fact that I was with loved ones, my other band members got their own tickets and sat separately. Speed Range: Infinitely variable: 60 to 400 FPM (18 to 122 m/min). Blade speed can be automatically set when material is chosen.

Blade Tension: Hydraulically controlled, 45,000 psi. max. (310 MPa). Machine equipped with automatic blade break / blade stall shut off switch. A lot of operate to clean it …
