Special Sawdust Session

The Evergreen Woodworkers Guild presents

“Getting the Most from Your Bandsaw”

With Michael Fortune

April 18, 2015  8 AM – 5 PM

The bandsaw can be one of the most accurate and sage machines in your workshop – providing it is set up and used properly. New or even well used 12″ or 14″ bandsaws with only a 1/2 horse power motor can be tuned to cut precision joints or re-saw flawlessly without purchasing after-market accessories or expensive blades.

Installing new tires, selecting and setting blade tension, tracking, cutting curves, and re-sawing will be covered. A variety of useful jigs designed to be used with the bandsaw will be demonstrated. Illustrations will be provided so you can make your own. Michael can’t remember the last time he ripped a piece of wood on the table saw. Instead, he prefers to use the smallest of his bandsaws, a 15″ General.

Let the bandsaw master show you how to make this simple machine the most versatile in the shop.
