Bandsaw restoration

One of the joys of the past month has been the restoration of a personal favourite, a little 10 inch bandsaw made in South Australia. Dad had purchased it to build a boat in the 1960s and on the arrival of children (us), it was handed to my grandfather for safe keeping. Pop always referred to it with caution, obviously afraid we would switch it on.

New bearings, new tires, new motor ($100 off ebay) and it seems to work….the blade wanders slightly (check our the guides), and it runs a little fast, but it cuts and most importantly; the blade stays on the tires.
