9. A bandsaw is safer than a circular saw as you can stop the saw in the material without damaging the material. There are not as many cutting teeth exposed at high speed with a bandsaw, thus making it less likely that you will be injured. 10. A bandsaw has a much easier cut or feed pressure than a table saw, and there is no danger of kickback with a bandsaw like there is with a circular saw. With a bandsaw, the material is pulled down toward the table holding it tight, where a circular saw will tend to let the wood rise up off of the table. You should use a push stick on both types of a saw. A circular saw holds the stock down, a bandsaw keeps your fingers away from the bands. Whether you have a homemade bandsaw or a commercial bandsaw is up to you. But these 10 suggestions in making a great cut should help. The biggest difference in a homemade bandsaw and a commercial one is mostly just the cost, but either way it is a great item to have if woodworking is your hobby.
Most basements are not air conditioned spaces, so heat from the lights becomes an issue during the summer months. Hang fluorescent light fixtures in between the joists. Attach a light weight chain to the sides of the adjacent joists and suspend the fluorescent light from the chain. Hang the fluorescent light fixture so that it is flush with the bottom of the joists. This will help keep it out of the way and still provide ample light. It might be necessary to use an additional light or two because of the shading caused by recessing the light.
I got to brainstorming with all the things I had sitting around. I had a couple of old Ford flywheels from Fords that I had junked out in the last couple years, and figured that I could use those for wheels for a bandsaw. I also had a couple front hubs and brackets from an old Chevy Cavalier that I could use for bearings and support for the wheels of a bandsaw. I had some old steel sitting around that I could for a frame and table. I also had a large piece of sheet aluminum that I could use for covers for the wheels and the table.
