Johnson Model B bandsaw - monkers - 12-02-2012

Here are some pics of a Johnson Model B bandsaw I recently picked up and have started fixing up. Gonna take a while, shop time is sparse. The saw was rough, and missing a couple parts. Had to bang all the dents out of the sheet metal covers, bought a hyd cyl from ebay. Made mounts for the cylinder, bought a on/off switch, made a box for it because I couldnt find any I liked for it.

Ah, money and time, if both were plentiful it would make life so much easier.

Nice work, especially on the switch box.

That will make a nice saw when it's done. Nice job on the switch adaptation!

Thanks Monkers, did you say what the capacity of the saw is? As in ?" x ?" . I 'd like to compare it too my homemade saw.

Looking good Craig, Thumbsup
I like the way the guides adjust allowing you to bring them close to the work.
