    Bandsaw goes click-click, click-click --- and dies

    Hi all, I have a Rikon 10-345 bandsaw that I bought second had some time ago. I tried (miserable failure) to resaw some maple over Christmas. The board was about 6" -- which I didn't think would be a problem for an 18" bandsaw. So... I watched a few YouTube videos and replaced the tires...

    Bandsaw Table

    I'm posting my plans and some build pics of a heavy red oak dining table base I did about a year ago featuring some beefy bandsaw columns. The feet were also of course cut on the bandsaw.

    How to stop bandsaw from making odd noises

    I'm very new to using the bandsaw so I wonder is it normal for a bandsaw when cutting wood to sound like a metal grinding? It only makes this sound when I cut wood, do I need to lubricate the wheels or anything of the sorts? If I do should I use mineral oil?

    Bandsaw Milling of Logs

    So I have a handful of logs in my backyard that were dropped and bucked to 2-5' logs, mostly pines. For fun today I brought a few of them to the 14" bandsaw and milled about 5 of them. A few were ~8" in diameter, two of them were about 10". Here are my spoils from the evening: milled most of...

    A Couple of Great Books

    Just picked up a couple of new ( to ME) books this week. The first, "Bandsaw Handbook" by Mark Duginske is crammed full of useful information on setup, techniques, safety, and even projects for any bandsaw owner. I could easily recommend it to any woodworker - not just for the...

    14" Rikon bandsaw...slight table vibrations

    I had an incident on my 14" Rikon bandsaw a couple of weeks ago. I had a 4 TPI blade that possessed aggressive teeth installed for cutting larger logs in the rough. During that time frame that particular blade was installed, I attempted to take a short cut and use that blade to cut a segmented...
