    bandsaw gear dirty repair

    Apparently dad never checked the grease in his bandsaw, and the gears self-destructed right after I inherited it. The only gears available are for the newer style of Taiwanese bandsaws (mine is a 1979 Duracraft), so I figured that I'd try a repair. It was surprisingly easy. Beads of MIG, shaped on the lathe, then shaped with an angle grinder.
