    I sure wish I had known about that about 20 years ago when I was maintaining over an eighth of a mile of gravel driveway. It would have worked way better than the box blade and angle scraper, and...

    Possibly Asian made Delta 20" band saw?

    Anyone have any info on this band saw? It appears to be approximately 18 to 20", badged Delta, but possibly Asian made, which would explain why I didn't find any examples on Vintage Machinery.

    A little late, but I only use two blades on my SC4E, 12" Tenryu Gold Medal 60 tooth ATB, and 12" Oshlun 48 tooth ATB for rougher work. Two of each. I tried some older blades from my former 12" TS...

    I keep a cheap digital scale and a selection of disposable cups around for mixing epoxy. The scale has to be replaced every few years because no matter how careful I am, it still gets nasty.

    I run a 1" Woodmaster CT on my Minimax, and any ripping under about 2" or so gets done on the bandsaw. Essentially anything too narrow or long to cut using my F&F jig on the slider.

    As I recall it only took three of us to stand my S540 up. Disassemble the crate (LOTS of nails), stand it up. Instead of a mobile base I built a sub base for mine I could get a pallet jack under.
