Alois 's bandsaw constructionThis article also available in German.
Hello Matthias ,
Thank you for your work providing such wonderful plans for the band saw
Here are some pictures from the build of my band saws. When I started my build, two friends asked if they could get one too. After asking you, the answer was: No problem. I would like to thank you for that too.
With so many chips from jointing and planing I had to attach an additional chip bag to my dust collector. So much at once is too much for my briquette press.
After gluing, flatness was adequate, but I flattened it some more in my thickness sander (drum sander).
Since I don't have a decent hand plane, I made a sanding block and used that to ensure that all front faces were at the right angle.
The round part of the clamping plates were shaped on the disk sander, rotating around on the peg. I made a holder out of wood for cutting the other side on the table saw.
That is why I used the bearing itself as a reference when cutting the faces and rounding the corners.
I really liked the angle indicator on Mikiono's bandsaw.
I still need to order more blades and do more testing.
