Homemade bandsaw (version 2)This project started when people started asking me about plans for my original bandsaw (version 1). I didn't want to give people plans for that one, because I already had ideas for how to build an even better one.
This second bandsaw is a 16" bandsaw. I chose that size because that's the largest I could go while still using a 105" blade. 105" blades are used by 14" bandsaws with riser blocks, so that length is very commonly available and in stock at most woodworking stores.
A few ideas made this bandsaw possible:
Building my 14" bandsaw
(bandsaw version 3)
Building bandsaw 1
(My first homemade bandsaw experiment)
How crowned pulleys
keep a belt aligned
relating to blade tracking
Bandsaw vs CNC
Making a gear on the bandsaw vs. a CNC mill
