So I thought, I wonder if I could make myself a bandsaw out of these things that I had. I wondered what I would use to power it. I had a 3 phase motor of about 3hp, so I thought I could use that motor and convert it to single-phase to power a saw. So I got all this stuff together and decided that other than the band, I believe I have everything I need to build one. For the band I looked at Sears, and saw that 93 1/2 inches was a standard band, so that way I could figure out the dimensions of the frame to mount the wheels.
Among many of its fabulous features are ceramic - titanium plates of just 1-1/4\" width, temperature up to 430 F, separate heating systems for each plate, removable comb teeth, ON / OFF switch with ION and power indicator lights, 8ft professional power cord, and AC 110V 60Hz for its usage in USA and Canada. Further, it comes attached with one year warranty.
3. You can cut very thick lumber with a bandsaw. The one I made will cut a depth of 12 inches, which is not possible to do with a table saw. 4. You can make resaw cuts on lumber with a bandsaw to make bookend type doors or plaques, as one side will be a mirror image to the other. You can also resaw lumber and make thin boards for such projects as miniatures. With my saw I was able to make small outhouse toilet paper holders, kleenex holders and other miniature outhouses for a friend that had outhouse decor in her spare bathroom.
