  • Home made blade sharpener for the homemade bandsaw. There 'was' a lot of machining...

    Dad and his brothers made the sawmill in the 80's.. Dad made the blade sharpener a few years ago. Finally got back to it..

      Simple and effective, the definition of a good design!!!

        That is neat. Wish I could see more details of the design.

        And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
        You will find that it has discrete steps.

            Very cool! Downright mezmerizing in fact......

            Any chance of a further back overall picture or two?

                Its just as well it is automatic, I was thinking how many teeth there will be on a blade. Does it also work with variable pitch blades?

                    Nice. The saw itself has a rather large looking electric motor? What size? And that's a conduit vertical for the power lines? (couldn't be an exhaust pipe! 🤔) When I lived in the country a guy down the road had one powered by an old volkswagon engine.

                      Cool!
                      Are you going to make a tooth setter too?
                      I just got into running a woodland mills sawmill last week on my property up North. They sell an automated sharpener that runs off a 12v battery so you can run it in the bush but its spendy as hell... https://woodlandmills.com/woodland-m...ade-sharpener/
                      I was thinking about getting after it with a dremel but I can already feel my back aching...

                        I think it is a 20hp 3ph.. (initially ran the K&T before we got rid of the hydraulics..) I surprisingly don't have many pictures of it. I should take some more... It initally (in the 80's) started with a 5hp briggs.. Then a pinto 4 cyl. Once it wasn't going to be portable anymore - we put an electric motor on it.

                          Dad just bought a setter - seems to work pretty well... woodland mills is the brand.. It actually is only made for 1.75" blades - but we got it to work with our 2"+ blades.

                              Not that I have any plans to make such a thing... but it would be interesting to see how the grinder is cam'd, as well as the tooth advance.
