Description

I have a very old Willow 3-wheel bandsaw which is still in excellent condition but the table is not thick enough to accommodate the fixing holes in the mounting rail. While ripping wide boards, as the board passes over the slightly protruded screw head, one can feel the board drop as it board clears the screw. I don’t use the micro a lot but find it works well and saves a lot of time when I need to fine tune an adjustment.

I don’t even think in fractions of an inch and convert most common fractions into a decimal number and the ones I don’t know offhand I go to my calculator. I used the bandsaw to cut away the material, nibbling away until everything inside the box was cut away. This appears an excellent fence, designed by Mark Dukinske, author of the very clear book 'The New Complete Guide to the Bandsaw'. Watching Boggs' video reminded me I have a fair amount of that extruded aluminum his fence appears to be made from. Instead of threaded holes in the table to bolt into I had to drill through the flange to use four 5/16″ nuts and bolts to secure the fence with.

The actual function of the measuring tape, with its very fine divisions, together with the lens cursor, is very good indeed and, once calibrated, extremely accurate. Magnified and easy-to-read for even the smallest adjustments, the thin red line on the Precision Lens Cursor lets you accurately set up the fence for cutting veneer, tenons, and more.

In a world of dizzying change and uncertainty I thought I had settled on the calm of knowing what I would next do, and now I don't. I would advise that, when you make the fence, you make it long enough to reach the full dimension of the table from front to back (front meaning the side you stand on to push wood through the blade), but maybe that is already obvious to you. When you glue the fence base and fence face together and add the ribs, be sure the glue-up is perfectly square and the base is flush with the edge of the rabbet at the bottom of the fence face. I'm resawing the wood so I can "book match" the sides of the box, making it look like all sides of the box are one continuous grain pattern.That's fine when cutting large pieces, but if you want to cut something narrower than the fence height, the blade won't track well through the cut because the guides are too high. The fence cut this piece of peruvian walnut and another (not pictured) piece of cherry with no trouble. The company's registered address is Accsol House High Street, Johnstown, Wrexham, LL14 2SH, United Kingdom. To fix this, I cut out a square just in the middle so that the guide assembly can be lowered down to the height of the normal fence. I have pushed tens of thousands of board feet of cherry, hard as well as soft maple, and spruce through an old Delta 14 with a riser block.

Hey everyone, I’m a beginner at woodworking but recently acquired an old delta 28-560 bandsaw that’s got a really nice cast iron top with a miter slot.I’ve used imperial for so long even though I’m born in a metric world that I think only in imperial. Straight off, I disliked the bandsaw fence that came standard and took a look at the Record Power version to retrofit with. Your installation has given me the solution of how to handle the blade removal, but will need to add a couple more bolts. To use a blade on the other side of the blade you could also leave the new fence in place and put the old one on the opposite side of the blade. I usually just clamp a piece of wood for a fence when I need it, but the magnetic fence sounds like a great idea.
