Band Saw Slowdown

November 17th, 2015

I just did a small side project because I need to cut some thick material for my RBS Lifter mechanism. My dad built me a shaft extender and I installed an old Bodine gearhead motor on my band saw. It’s really slow now. This is probably more than slow enough for cutting steel without burning up blades.
