  • Ever see one of these?

    I never knew such a thing existed. If no one here jumps on it, what is the general opinion of such a thing?

    (EDIT) He is comparing it to the normal 12" BS

    I have seen this style of saw before. Actually, if you do a lot of angled band sawing, it's much easier with that saw than to pivot the table and chase your wood all around. Kinda like tilting your table saw and keeping the blade up and down, not the ideal way to do it. Price is good too if this is what you want.

      what were you you looking at?
      Was it the Craftsman tilting blade BS they had a few years ago?

      Did it look something like this?

          That was a S that Sears/Craftsman sold for a few years. I thought it was a pretty neat idea. At that time I think Emerson was making the BS for them. I can see where it would have advantages at times over a tilt table. I have seen a few going in the $80 - $100 range in my area (within 75 miles). I was tempted once to pick one up a while back and that is how I came to have that photo. But I decided to tweak my old BS and run it a couple more years and wait to get something bigger and better. I did and recently bought the Rikon 10-325 14" BS which so far has been great.

                  Strange, the concept of fixed table/tilting blade is using in many larger scale bandsaws. I have used big Marvel Metal-cutting Bandsaws which are of this style and I found them very easy to use. Setup with any BS is a never-ending battle it seems, they constantly need adjustment/tweaking. The Marvel BS is a wet saw w/power feed. You set up the cut and clamp the workpiece to the table, then engage the feed (after setting the feed pressure) and stand back and watch it work. We used them to cut big tube steel, angle, and WF beams for large bore pipe hangers. That saw would slice through a piece of 6x8x1/2" TS in just a minute or two, W24x146 beams took a little longer (there's 43 sq. in. of steel to cut through in a beam that size ) The blade was something like 210" IIRC. Here's a photo of one but much smaller than the ones we were using, the table on ours were about 3 x 7 feet. The blade can also be tilted over 45 deg. to make angled cuts.

                    Bob and others

                    If you have flash (I'm pretty sure you do) installed, take a look at this web site where it shows Marvel band saws tilting 60 degrees to both the left and right!!! I think you'll enjoy looking around. I remember seeing some of their band saws in a place in North Eastern PA that sells all manor of raw steel products. Some of the band saws are huge workhorses for sure. They even have some downloadable videos showing the machines at work on this site.

                      Thanks for the link to their site. The Mark 8 Series II looks very similar to what we used, but a few years newer no doubt. The blade size is about right. I thought it was 210 but the 186" (15'-6") high column model is probably like what we had. I remember they were pretty messy to operate, the cutting fluid would be all over the place and table top. We kept a squeegee close by for clean up.
