    Bandsaw Stabiliser Guide. Scheppach 3

    Hi, I watched the YouTube video on changing your bandsaw guides to a Stabilizer. Only for thin blades of 1/4” and less. The bottom guides are not used at all, just moved out of the way ! The blade is pre-tensioned by moving the guide about 1/8” or so forward then re adjusting the top wheel so...

    preserving shine on copper

    Hi I made this Jab Trophy last year after my first jab. Used plumbing copper tube. I used this RS clear lacquer which went on well. Only one fine coat was needed. Cleaned the parts with acetone first. Cheers.

    Wood Gear Cutting

    Haha. Just had a look. I don’t think I’d have any social life if I took that on. 😄

    Wood Gear Cutting

    I’ve just converted my rotary table to stepper motor drive and purchased a controller from World of Ward. Tried it out today on some scrap gears. Absolutely brilliant ! I’m making another wood clock so I thought I’d treat myself. Just input divisions (number of teeth) and the table rotates the...

    Bandsaw use of guide/guard

    Maybe it was a meat processing plant ? Horrifying …. I know someone locally who cut the top of a finger off. He thought it a good idea to put a circular saw blade in an angle grinder … gawd !!!!

    New Bandsaw

    Hi. It looks like 0.8kw. See photo. I have very limited room and need to rotate it when doing very long pieces. See photos. Quite easy with the wheels and retractable handle. I’ve set it up using the Snodgrass video on YouTube. Also bought a small collection of blades. But usually use 3/8” 3 TPI.

    New Bandsaw

    Hi. I have a Scheppach Basa 3.0h vario. I can’t compare with others as it’s the only one I’ve had. But seems to do the job ok. I cut mainly wood but also metal (with the correct blade). The blade guides are a bit odd though. See photo. I’d prefer ball races. May modify it in the future. It also...

    Kings of the Wood (tv programme)

    Quite agree !!! Terrible but strangely watchable - especially to see if Misty got flowing clothes caught in a machine !!!

    Electric vehicles - again

    Yes not bad. Decent range and usable top speed, unlike the Twizy or Ami. A very high percentage of cars I see has only one occupant. To help relieve congestion it’s important to size this sort of vehicle so that two can fit comfortably side by side on our roads and parking spaces. Also try to...
