    I went to pick up the bandsaw a few weeks ago and put it in the basement. Now while its apart I will clean the bearings and regrease them and derust the table.

    It looks like it was quite the job just getting the saw in the building wow.

    It wasn’t bad, I had to build a gantry crane, cut out the bottom of the closet, and cut a wall free and the take the stairs out. next time will be easier as the wall and stairs are bolted in place now.

    Looks like a serious project just to get it in place. That is quite a setup you made to get it there.

    I used 6 jack post to make an adjustable gantry. I needed 6 feet out side and 11’3″ in the basement.

    That is one huge bandsaw! Great job of getting in. Anxious to see it restored and in action. Thanks for sharing.

    Holy crap…that’s a lot of saw! What does it weigh? I see your 1/2 ton was able to move it.

    Nice beast! How wide of a blade can it handle? Did you get it for resawing?

    That is one heck of a band saw. It was quite the project to get it into the basement too. That will be awesome once you get it all cleaned up.

    Maybe a hole with a backhoe and poke a hole in the wall?
    One project always leads to another.
    Next time…?
    What size blade?

    That is one nice looking bandsaw, what a beast. I guess you’re not moving anytime soon? lol

    I don’t know about the car guys here but my first thought was “That would make a great English Wheel” 🙂

    @Doobie

    Makes forming larger pieces of sheet metal much easier.

    The wheel width is 1.5 inches and don’t know the length, will figure it out when I put it back together. I didn’t get it for resawing but it has an 18 inch resaw height, most big bandsaws are used with a narrow blade for curve work. It has a massive lower wheel assembly. I am not sure of the weight, I think about 1400- 1600lbs. I took the top wheel and assembly and the table on a seperate trip. It was made in Budapest Hungary

    Neat. Never knew they were called that.

    Obviously resawing is not its primary design purpose. What a beast it is!
