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:
Wood beam frame, laminated from boards
Integrated pulley on the lower wheel
The use of innertubes as bandsaw tires
Truing the wheels while spinning on their own bearings
