Ernesto's Rey Aragundi's bandsaw

Ernesto, from Italy, sent me pictures of his homemade bandsaw. Inspired by my designs, but a different style of frame.

Ernesto originally powered his bandsaw with a 700-watt washing machine motor. But that motor was on the weak side, so he replaced it with an almost new 2 HP motor that he was able to get for 75 euros.
