In September, forthe three weeks I built a 14" band saw using your plans.
First, I made circles, blocks and a table. Wheels cut out the router.
The wheels are made of two layers of plywood 18 mm and 6 mm for 24 mm total.
I cut the belt groove on my lathe.
The pulleys are 80mm 300mm. Wheels are on 20 mm steel shafts
The frame is made of planks of pine.
The motor is a 3 phase 400 V, 2480 rpm. The pulleys are 80mm 300mm.
Truing and adding a crown to the wheels.
Saw blade is 2400 mm x 10 mm x 0.6 mm, 6 TPI.
|The shafts fit in the bearing with ease after sanding the shaft on the lathe.|
I put a 50 mm elbow on the bottom for a dust hose.
The upper drawer of the base also Catches sawdust.
The table has a slot with an aluminium track.
Now I have two bandsaws: old 10" and 14".
|After the construction of the saw from your plans,|
I tested it by cutting some circles in plywood.
Thank you Matthias for good plans.
