(title should read Pneumatic and not hydraulic!)
When sawing thin stock on a horizontal bandsaw, it is essential that the feed rate be slow. Otherwise, teeth start to shear off and the cut veers away from true. Plenty of nice homemade hydraulic feed rate controlling devices exist but, as usual, I wanted to find a different path.
This video shows a possible simple way to control the feed rate. This is just a proof of concept and needs more work before I make something to keep.
