  1. australian portamill "the little ripper" bandsaw mill

    I believe the Portamill and Little Ripper are two different devices.
    The Little Ripper is attached to a stationary bandsaw and used in a shop. On a typical 14 inch saw, a 1/2 inch 3tpi band will do...

    Make sure your design will contain any overflow resulting from unexpected overfilling of the waste bin and cyclone body. The CV is quite capable of moving everything through the circuit, especially...

    Bandsaw tension

    But you have to know the correct tension specification.

    That value can only be provided by the band manufacturer.
