  • I got good news and I got bad news

    bad news. My ham fisted brother in law moved my vertcal band saw and broke the trunions that allow the table to tilt. I think the used a lift truck under the table. Now I have to make some new ones. With that thought in mind I went to the junk yard to look for some 4 1/2 diameter pipe.

    Good news. Found the pipe. Cost/ 40 cents for a cut of 1 foot. There was also a barrel of rollers like from a conveyor. I got an armload for 50 cents each. There was also a skip ther from a ball bearing factory. 1 to 3 foot lengths of whatever they make bearing races out of. 1 to 2 inches in diameter 25cents a pound. Also huge stacks of electric motors for when I decide to make an RPC.

        It's a long shot, but if you happen to have a 14" Delta vertical bandsaw I've got an extra set of trunnions.
