    Congratulations on your noteworthy achievement. I did the same thing when I was younger. I built a bandsaw (18"). Later in life, I was involved in a project that involved a huge machine with a bandsaw that had a 29ft. blade. I learned a lot from that job. My grandfather made a wood cutting band saw back in the 40's using two bicycle wheels (with tubes and tires). He also made a pretty neat floor model drill press from pipe and pipe fittings. I sure wish I had some pictures to show you guys. The nice thing about making your own equipment is that you know where to get spare parts, you know it doesn't have a warranty, you can repair it yourself, and you give it a little more respect, because you made it yourself. It is kind of a "warm fuzzy feeling"! By the way, one of these days, I will post pics of a 16 speed bandsaw transmission I made for my 14" Rockwell. It is "geared down in the basement". It will cut metal or wood or plastic! You will be visibly shaken!

    A big bandsaw is on my to-do list.
