The Band Saw, continued

Hi Everyone,
Well, it's been a cold rainy day here but the good news is that the band saw is running. My son Critter came over and lent a hand and looked at the saw and found that the upper wheel was frozen in place. It must have suddenly stopped and when it did, it broke the blade that was on it. We took it apart, lubricated everything again, adjusted it and now it's running. I cut several small pieces of wood on it and it ran fine.

I'm not sure why the wheel froze up-I blame the wood fairies.

Ok, onward and forward. I'm going to cut out several dozen spoon and bowl blanks so the next time it goes off it's rocker, I'll have something to do.

More later,
