    The pin is to help keep the table aligned

    The plug in the side of the table because it splits there. The pin makes sure those 2 parts are indeed level.

    I enjoyed the video up to the point where you resawed that board. Serious case of bandsaw envy setting in. Thanks for sharing!

    I am surprised that you can run the bandsaw with the doors open.

    I have the same blade, but my blade just twist so much that I can`t make the sharp turns to make a bandsawbox… Any tips?

    I love your tension quick release lever, my bandsaw is very basic and you have to keep turning the knob at the top, this in turn makes it harder to change the blade.

    I like reaching across the blade with the cover open to turn the saw on to test for blade tension 4:07…I like to live on the edge too.
    I also change blades on my Circular Saw, Table Saw and especially Routers and Power Planers with them plug in too….

    ProTip: Lay a strait edge on the table top while you reinstall the pin :)

    My tires are wearing out on my bandsaw (Grizzly 555) and will need to be replaced soon (factory rubber tires). Are there any advantages, in your opinion, to switching to polyurethane tires or should i save a litlle money and go back with the rubber tires?

    It is so annoying that you are always trying to address the "heaters" in your videos, if you don't like what they say just ignore them, don't address their complaints in your videos, or at least don't call them "haters", it gives a sense of hostility to you and your videos.

    You mean you don't use a strain gauge when you adjust your tension? Git gud, scrub.

    What was the name of that dude on youtube that said there should be enough tension on the blade that it should only move with enough pressure to give your wife a good push?

    that side slot in the table is great. my 12" bandsaw has a table slot out the front and I've got to take the fence rail off – sigh.

    So what's the hard way? Doing it while trapped in a bag?

  20. Right. How do I make that?

    November 29, 2016 at 4:15 am

    I like the lower-thirds text, but I wish it were more down and to the left. I think you can safely crop off some of the "Make Something" circle without it looking weird.

    Great tip, love the American flag in the background David.

    Tension in the sawblade is what overcomes the tendency for the blade to follow the grain of the wood…. Don't believe it?… Don't think it's important?… Just loosen the tension, and watch what happens.

    Furthermore, that little thingy you don't know what it does… That little thingy keeps the top of the table on the same plane… Don't forget to replace it, or leave it out all together.. You could end up with a table going out of alignment, and be in the market for a NEW bandsaw.

    If I use a $100 bill for spacing, will I get better results than a $1 bill since it's a more expensive tool? 😀 Cheers! Chris.

    I agree, just change it and go about your business (cutting metal all day long).

    GREAT viveo David. Yeah, this shows that we don't have to do ALL things specifically by the book. Yes SAFETY FIRST, but focus your time on making something (pun intended) and life can be much easier.

    I just recorded a bandsaw basics video for my students last week, so this was cool to see. While I was at it I recorded blade changing, but am keeping it separate as my students don't need to change the blades in the school shop.
    I like your energy.

    Great video David! I use the exact same techniques for swapping out the blades on my bandsaw also. I think some people just get fixated a little to much on the setup of a tool over the techniques of using the tool. Keep up the good work!

    Nice video but you might consider switching to decaf…whew! Feel like I ran a race with you! You don't use resaw fences so what's the resaw fence for. ;)

    Keep killing it, David. You seem revitalized lately – great energy and enthusiasm. Having an audience/camera dude seems to be making a big difference.

    you don't know what the pin is for, you don't care about blade tension, yet you wrote a bandsaw book? perfect.
    welcome to the new generation people.
    if you people want real info on setting up a bandsaw, then search YouTube for Alex Snodgrass.

    KICK ASS VIDEO BROTHA. I love that you started that baby with the cover open. I'm sure a few members of the fricken Youtube Woodworking Safety Committee will come'a bitchin about that. IF YOU CAN'T TURN THE ON SWITCH FOR HALF A SECOND WITHOUT LOSING A FINGER, YOU SHOULD PROB HAVE UR CAT PULL OUT THE YELLOW SAFETY CAP ON THE ON SWITCH PEOPLE! YOU CAN HAVE IT BACK ONCE YOU'VE LEARNED!.
    …OR A lecture on how much smarter they are since they understand Newtons law of tension bla bla bla. anyhow, videos great my friend..one tinyyyy recommendation… might be cool to teach people how to tie or "fold" a bandsaw blade.. I thought you were gonna Grand Finale that baby..idk, took me a while to learn Galileo's law of blade twirlington-thingy….late brotha
