Yep, in additional to material for the :glowforge: it will also be used to help prep wood for the lathe.

Again, go big or go home :wink:

I have read that the smaller wheels mean a tighter bending radius for the blade and more chance of breaking. Don’t know if it’s true – the only bandsaw blades I’ve ever broken have been on metal.

Thanks All!

I had a lot of fun with this topic today.

Oh man, that is a very nice lathe.

My Dad has been turning for years. He is teaching classes down in Florida near where he lives.

I can’t even tell you the last time I even turned my lathe on. :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:

Nice saw! I’m a bit of a sad panda as my 14" imploded on me. The pal that does the upper wheel tilt and such cracked. The machine was a 25+ year machine so it did it’s time.

I’m considering one of Matthias machines…
