    pier, this is a great looking project. The blade frame and feed weight arrangement is very good, excellent addition with jack-screw on the vise too. Is there incorporation for blade lift on return strokes?
    My preference for heavy material leans to power hacks - less expensive for super quality blades, way less floor space for same capacity.
    May be biased...often used a 36" (with 2 or 3 tpi) monster owned by our collective Uncle Sam.

    Top work excellent finish, I like the design. My attempt at a power hacksaw failed, i tried building one with 12" I beam stand and an inch box section framed top and slide, i even went as far as buying a 60 rpm geared AC motor. Sadly my ambition out weighed my ability and it cut great dog legs.
    It looks like you have butchered a lathe head stock for the drive is this correct.

    Its a fantastic build, all praise to you - it looks like it will serve you well.
    Smoke makes electronics work, if it escapes the equipment breaks.
    Got to keep the smoke in.

    Yet the blade does not rise to the router, but I think I would end up doing.
    And no, I have not used lathe head.
    I'll soon put a video
