  • Trusty 4x6 bandsaw - mod to improve downfeed

    I was looking around the 4x6 Yahoo group & noticed a file (image only) that added a "hydraulic cylinder" as a companion to the feed pressure spring. I used the quotes since I don't know what was actually employed... actual hydraulic cylinder/circuit, gas cylinder (strut to support car trunk lid) or... Looking thru the 4x6 site I didn't find any more info.

    Can someone point me to a complete project or a website with more details? Thanks

    Hi Dunc,
    On my website I have details of a bandsaw hydraulic cylinder, see http://mikesworkshop.weebly.com/band...-cylinder.html
    Photos and drawings of this are also on the 4 x 6 website

      iv had the saw for 20 years or so, and iv managed without hydraulics very well. ( id rather make an tilting table for horizontal sawing.)
