I was expecting someone to come up with the obvious thing that I hadn't thought of. I would have had to use the 'Homer' icon. But for that answer you can have itPete Maddex":2owkd3qr said:Hi,
To cut the other side of the wood :wink: :lol:
I don't know offhand of any particular reason why the bandsaw should function differently with the fence to the right than with the fence to the left, since the blade moves entirely vertically through the table.Grahamshed":37iw9vuu said:Not had a bandsaw for very long but I only ever seem to use it with the fence to the left of the blade. When, or why, would you move it to the right of the blade ?
Just so. The 'stop' presumably is only for short planks ?....... and would only work if the blade had no drift ( which mine doesn't now )Steve Maskery":1utrjbqw said:Well I would"t use arip fence at all to mitre the end of any board, I'd use a mitre fence with a stop on it.
I will have a look, cant pretend I remember that bitSteve Maskery":3b4jkl4v said:Graham
GO back to I forget whether it's on my DVDs and find the scene about cutting long bevels. I gt's probably on WE5. When I'm ripping at 45 deg, the fence is on the right. Imagine if it were on the left in that scenario and how hard it would be to keep the workpiece hard against the fence. You would ave to fight gravity all the time.
