    Why Not Convert to Metric?

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    A sharpening thread of my very own (Japanese Natural Stones).

    What bandsaw would you buy?

    Thread Starter: John TenEyck

    I continue to look for a new to me used bandsaw but I'm not very optimistic one will turn up that meets my set of circumstances. My circumstances: Basement shop with the only access a single set of stairs through the house. I'm fine taking off the table and motor, but anything much more...
