    Default My 32" L.S. Barker Bandsaw is alive...

    After a long time with not much time to work on restoring my saw, I've finally had the VFD all sorted, new tyres on, all re-greased, guides straightened out and after some fine tuning, fired her up today. A 45 second start-up time and 60 seconds to stop (the VFD doing the braking) and it all works really well. Still a few things to go, but...

    ...what this project has made me realise is that the saw is way too much saw for me and my small shed.

    It's fine, it's temporary.

    I bought the tyres from thewoodkid.com.au and glued them on with Sikaflex
