    Hey BV,

    "I need to check this "Z axis" thing... You mean the position of the wheel forwards and backwards when you are facing the machine with mainteinance door open, right?
    Is there a safe way to cut angles and low radius curves with it?" - you understood perfectly right! Will in case make more sense when you´re at it!?

    Normally you can tilt (and adjust it in any angle to min. 45 degree..) that saw´s table..

    by the way: that answer-mail arrived not before 17:44 h .. i wrote to you pretty exactly at 14:43h- that´s three hours! (for once around the globe in total)

    THIS reply i wrote at 18:23h..

    Greetings,

    Be

    Did you buy that saw "new" or used? Which type exactly?

    If you got a wood-band on it and saw into a nail just once,
    the saw teeth will be ruined at one side;- curves in that direction
    will be bigger than the others (I didn´t yet change that demolished band yet,
    although i have new one´s here and can get them rather cheap-
    to sharpen those nowadays is no longer worth the effort..)

    Sure its for fire..

    ... our oven is implementet in the central heating system of the house.
    saves at least 700€ every year.. And that wood is for free (though that on the pics is not enough for the winter :) )

    The wood-bandsaw has 1040W/740W (400V)
    and that AL-KO BSS 400 for steel has 375W..

    I love those!- they are "peaceful" compared to the circular saw..

    @ arturo: it´s dispendable pallettes - "rubbish"

    Ahh, pallets. I used to cut up pallets for firewood. And then, got used to digging buckets of nails out of the fireplace every so often :)

    I would love to get a band saw some day - it was my favorite tool in wood shop. You could make nice curving cuts and it was so quiet compared to some of the other tools. I cut all my pallets using only a handheld circular saw. Makes for some sore arms after a few hours.

    Wow! nice! My bandsaw is a toy compared to yours ( includding Bm's)
    Tools are VERY expensive here! A decent bandsaw goes near 400 euros.

    I still use it with much trepidation, I had a misshap with the bandsaw in woodshop in grade 9. Fingers don't soon forget the feel of fleash on sharp steel:eek:. can't let something 20 years in the psat stop me though. I do favor the scrollsaw though, it's more forgiving and makes such sharp turns even in 1/4" aluminum.

    It's a 90's delta 15" i got on ebay a while back. I got a pinless blade kit from Poszgai Designs and it works as good as a new saw for 1/4 the price. I use flying dutchman blades, the finest german made scrollsaw blades available. Cuts purple heart like butter but blades don't last long on a scrollsaw.

    on my horizon, the reference grinding machine (still on my list, not in my shop)
