£18.99

A bandsaw is a big investment but it is a truly versatile machine. Peter demonstrates how to set up, maintain and use it safely ensuring you make the most of your machine, getting the best results possible, because a poorly set up machine can cause inaccuracy and be dangerous in un-trained hands.

 Bandsaws are basic machines but require good setting up and the correct blades to produce accurate results. Selecting the correct blade for the job is key for best results, as is recognising when (and why) a blade is becoming blunt.  A “must see” for all bandsaw owners.

Also available as a DVD

      Great Video

      Very informative! I realised that I had not set my bandsaw up correctly (position of supporting bearings). Having watched the video and fitting a new blade correctly, I was rewarded with a nice clean cut!

      Fantastic video for less than the price of a spare bandsaw blade, worth every penny

      Even though I would have considered myself an exeperienced user, this video covered many new aspects I had not thought about. I particularly found the section on blade selection really useful and this will be a big help in selecting the optimum blade for my projects. Finding it harder and harder to resist signing up for one of Peter’s courses. Keep these excellent videos coming!

      Comprehensive guide, invaluable for beginners and experienced users

      Although not formally trained as a machinist, I've been around bandsaws for many years - ranging from a particularly 'basic' machine in the 1960s to the big industrial-rated one I now use for timber preparation - and my life would have been much easier and more enjoyable if this video had been available when I started. As it was, it still proved very well worth the investment. Having viewed it from start to finish, I devoted some time to both my bandsaws - I have a little benchtop one in my hand-tool shop for lighter work - and both of them are positively singing as a result. Peter covers everything necessary for initially setting up a bandsaw - including choosing, changing and storing blades, setting tracking, guides and fences, and many more tips along the way. Apart from actually having my machines really on song, I also now have the reassurance of actually knowing that they're right, rather than the nagging doubt of 'What is it that I should know and don't?'! A particularly welcome added bonus was a little set of 'extras' covering a range of topics from dust extraction to rust prevention.
      It should be considered essential viewing for anyone new to bandsaws - and no bad idea for more experienced users.
