Re: Bandsaw Table Installation and Alignment

Not mentioned in this thread is that once a back-angled blade is fully engaged into the cut, the cutting load is slightly _more_ than a perpendicular blade. Pythagorean worked that all out for us. Admittedly, that penalty is slight given the shallow angle of the blade. That's a very good point, Pau...

Re: Just bought my first SS... now I have questions

Likewise, there are things you can do with the disc you would be unable to do with the belt. And the random orbits are great, but they don't d...

Re: A view on alignment of the shopsmith.

Very interesting point by Scott of My Growth Rings on why he never puts a fence on a left side extension table. He points out that the assembly has a ton of movement even locked. Check out the video. https://youtu.be/2iQ9GiiwHo4?t=460
