In this course on Band Saws, session one of our Power Tools series, we begin with one of the youngest families of woodworking tools, and the one most closely associated with boatbuilding. We will include reciprocating saws to discuss how these developed from the very first attempts to mechanize the motion of a handsaw and a person’s arm. We’ll look at jigsaws, portable bandsaws, reciprocating saws (Sawzall), scroll saws, and stationary bandsaws for cutting wood and metal.
In this course we will cover repairs, maintenance, tuning, and of course safe operation with the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment. Then, we will give you time to practice time! Happening at our workshop located at 149 Hurricane Road, Tuesday, April 9th, 6-8pm. $20.00
