Roland Johnson’s Complete Illustrated Guide to Bandsaws hits the stands!
Hey, I finally got the book done and you can have a copy of my superb, complete, comprehensive, incredibly entertaining book right now! All kidding aside, I’m really happy with the book and it has a ton of good information and some really foolproof setup procedures. Read the book and end your bandsaw woes.
Here’s a tip: Sawing resinous woods such as pine requires a blade with large gullets to effectively evacuate sawdust from the cut. Low-pitch hook-tooth blades are the best.
This book came out just in time for me. I was having trouble cutting large bowl blanks with my 14" and decided it was time for a new one. Then the Tools and Shops issue arrived in the mail box and Roland had me thinking (as well as the article about putting your router into the table saw). This book really is the bible when it comes to Band Saws. He covers it all. I highly recommend it. Now if I could just make up my mind on which saw to buy...
Because of the bark on a wood logs my bandsaw blade very quickly loses its cutting edge. Its expensive and frustrating.
Can be effectively sharpen a blade?
