Band Saw Fundamentals
[the Complete Guide]Book - 2006
Woodworkers trust Popular Mechanics to give them the information they need--and the Workshop series, written by respected DIY author Rick Peters, has proven especially invaluable. Each title covers a single tool in depth, with hundreds of photos, detailed instructions, charts, and sidebars. This new entry covers every aspect of the always practical band saw, from choosing the right one (be it portable or bench-top, open or closed base) to basic and advanced techniques. Find out about its capabilities, different motors, and useful accessories, as well as how to make a variety of simple and compound cuts. See how to construct shop-made jigs and fixtures, and maintain the saw for long life. Beautiful projects include a dovetailed stool, cabriole leg table, and herringbone jewelry.
