Among many of its fabulous features are ceramic - titanium plates of just 1-1/4\\" width, temperature up to 430 F, separate heating systems for each plate, removable comb teeth, ON / OFF switch with ION and power indicator lights, 8ft professional power cord, and AC 110V 60Hz for its usage in USA and Canada. Further, it comes attached with one year warranty.
The picture above shows the bandsaw I built using the things mentioned. It took me a couple months, since I only worked on it in the evenings and on weekends, but I figure I spent around $100 to make me a functioning bandsaw that cuts up to 12 inch logs. A bandsaw like this would have cost me probably $1200 or more to buy commercially. I later invested in a new motor so I could run it on straight 110 single phase instead of 220 volts single phase. That cost me about $200. I also wrote and kept the plans to the saw so that I could either build another one or share the plans with others.
So I thought, I wonder if I could make myself a bandsaw out of these things that I had. I wondered what I would use to power it. I had a 3 phase motor of about 3hp, so I thought I could use that motor and convert it to single-phase to power a saw. So I got all this stuff together and decided that other than the band, I believe I have everything I need to build one. For the band I looked at Sears, and saw that 93 1/2 inches was a standard band, so that way I could figure out the dimensions of the frame to mount the wheels.
