Mastering The Bandsaw

A properly-tuned band saw can — and perhaps should — be the centre of an efficient woodshop.

Bandsaws are capable of very accurate work, from cutting precise tenon joints to resawing the densest woods straight and smooth to cutting fluid curved shapes. Even an inexpensive bandsaw can be tuned to give excellent results.

This class will show you how to adjust and manage your band saw for optimum results.

You will learn:

  • How to mount the blade
  • How to set the blade tension
  • How to tune the bandsaw to make perfect cuts
  • Correct sawing and resawing techniques
  • How to eliminate “drift”
  • Blade selection
  • Making joinery on the band saw
  • Learn how to cut freehand accurately to any curved or straight line
  • See how to make a collection of simple jigs that will make the bandsaw even more versatile and accurate
