Something Seems Different Somehow

Not sure – just seems something seems to have changed….metamorphosed.

No, I haven’t had a chance to clean out there – it is a bomb site.  Finding even a small window of opportunity is proving difficult at this time of year.

Ok, ok, yes, the bandsaw has had a colour change to shades of Carbatec, and has become a little bigger and heavier.  Hey, speaking of which, moving a 150kg crate takes some doing!  I had help, and a trolley (rated for 100kg).  It almost killed the trolley – guess its rating had a safety margin!  Almost was the death of the wheels though.

Have only had a chance to assemble it, and make a couple of quick cuts.  First observations: sure runs smooth, and quiet.  It has a great blade quick tensioner, etc – I could go on for a while, but it will be the subject for another day.

Yet again, another quality bandsaw sold with a very inadequate blade.  I’ve always said that the blade that comes with a machine should be replaced as fast as possible, and put aside, marked “for cutting aluminium etc”, and this one is no different.

So, putting this machine through its paces will be a very interesting series of tests.
