    Big bandsaw Tuesday

    Moving some equipment around in my shop today and finally getting around to test firing some stuff I have had sitting for a year or so. I do have 3 more 36" saws, I should get a group shot.

    That's a fairly rare Greenlee 410 from around 1925 sitting next to a Tannewitz GHE from 1973. Not much has changed in bandsaw design, other than making new ones lighter and cheaper.. IMG_20200331_114229_813.jpg

    Ball bearing, 7.5hp direct drive.
    I believe it was originally owned by the Fisher Body Company in Pontiac, MI.

    What size blades are in these saws. What are the saws uses? O think you could saw planks out of tree trunks.

    Another interesting tid bit on the greenlee, it was in the Fisher Body co. plant in Pontiac, MI. probably bought new for that building when it opened. Be neat to find pictures.

    They take a 19' 6" blade, anywhere from 3/8 to 1 1/4" wide.
    For production batching of parts. Trace pattern, cut close to line and stack on cart for next operation.

    The tannewitz was originally bought by Magic Chef.
