  • Cool New Jigsaws

    by AW-Editor     Monday, September 1, 2008
    Hey, the days of Grandpa's noisy old hard-to-steer, blade-poppin' saber saw are over. New jigsaws from Bosch and Metabo are fine examples of today's what-a-pleasure-to-use jigsaws. The Bosch 1590EVSK and Metabo STE105 Plus share great features...
  • Bandsawing Inside Curves

    by Tim Johnson     Wednesday, February 18, 2009
    This is a useful trick when bandsawing inside curves. It requires no marking and no special jig. First I cut a shallow slot in a piece of scrap and attach it to the bandsaw fence, as shown. The radius of the cut, “R,” is the same as the distance...
  • Super Souped Up Bandsaw

    by American Woodworker Editors     Tuesday, August 11, 2009
    Grizzly has added some muscle to one of their best-selling 14-in. bandsaws and come up with the new model G0555X machine, $595. I like the large motor (1-1/2-hp, 15-amp), I like the built-in light, I like the tall resaw fence, but what I like most is...

  • Dust-Free Bandsaw

    by American Woodworker Editors     Monday, November 30, 2009
    I replaced my bandsaw’s wimpy 1-1/2-in. dust-collection port with a shop-made shroud that makes bandsawing virtually dust-free. The secret: My shroud’s intake port is much larger (see photo and exploded view, below). Another great feature...

  • Bandsaw Fence

    by American Woodworker Editors     Tuesday, July 31, 2012
    Bandsaw Fence Our fence shines where commercial models fall short. By Richard Tendick Every bandsaw deserves a good fence. After all, a bandsaw is capable of doing much more than cutting curves. With a well-designed fence, you can accurately resaw boards...
