    Horizontal metal bandsaw

    This is my horizontal bandsaw for cutting metal
    I used 250mm (10inch) polyamide (nylon) wheels because it was easier and cheaper to obtain and fabricate, (they needed to be turned on the lathe anyway)
    I was going to make a whole hydraulic installation like in a commercially made bandsaw but then I tried this jack from my engine hoist and that's how it actually remained to this day
    cutting capacity 190mm round or 300x125mm box

    I'm working one one as well, so It's good to see how others build/fabricate... Thanks for sharing your ideas/work.

    The use of the engine hoist cylinder is a great alternative to what you originally planned.
