  • My New Re-Saw Kit

    Just got back from finishing a job overseas and Santa came early with a new re-saw kit for me. Took me two days to clean the cosmoline off, but finally ready to hook up power and fine tune. Picked saw up in Austin, Tx. on Tuesday and had a big chore unloading from trailer and getting in shop (all 764 lbs. of it) Wednesday morning. Almost ready to start making lumber for scrolling clocks. I have a lot of cherry, curley maple, black walnut, bass wood, cedar, and ipe to re-saw. The saw is 220v single phase, 4.8hp and will take a 1 1/2 inch blade. Re-saw capacity is 20 inch. Maybe this is overkill. I hope not, only time will tell.
    I will let you know how it does as soon as I get it wired up and test run.

    That is a Cadillac of a saw, congrats. and, regarding it being overkill, ..not a chance, bigger is better when it comes to bandsaws.Go make some thin lumber!!! Dale
    once youve got it set up, can you measure the table height for me? It appears a bit lower then my jet 14 inch saw, and at a more user friendly height.

      Hating you already.



      Seriously, that looks like a fabulous piece of kit and I hope it meets your expectations. Let us know how you get on.

        Table height

        Lucky788scroller,

        From the floor to the top of the table measures 34 3/4 inches on the MM20 and my 14 inch Delta bandsaw measures 45 inches from the floor to the top of the table.

            That will definately serve you very well for resawing. I don't think there's a better saw around than the MM's. I'm jealous.

              Yep, that's a heck of a saw and we can deffinitely see how proud you are with all the pictures you uploaded of it. You'll need a big saw for resawing Ipe, that's some mean lumber. I just have a 16" saw, but it's a laguna and will resaw at 13" which I think is the biggest resaw for a saw that size. I love the Laguna, and it has alot of power at 1 1/2 hp, but it isn't a standard size blade. It's 130", which I can never find and have to have special order.
              Now go tell your wife you need some outfeed rollers for that monster.

                  James, I sure wish I had one like that in my shop.
                  Good buy.

                      I am very jealous!! Now all you need is a big planer.
                      I have a Delta with the riser that allows me to saw about 12" and the 13 inch planer. It is real nice when I run out of 1/8 or 1/4 wood to just cut a slice and plane it. No mail order

                      That new saw should have lots of beef. Enjoy

                        Planer and Joiner

                        Hi Rolf,

                        I have a 15 inch Delta planer and the Delta 8 inch DJ-20 joiner. With this resaw bandsaw I am ready to get into making some serious clocks. I also have one of the older RBI Hawk 26 scroll saw. I really like the scroll saw and haven't had a minutes problem with it. I would like to upgrade that also but can't decide which scroll saw to go to.

                          It is so cute (Christmas deer)

                          "It is so cute" - it is the first what I hear when I show this project. I haven’t done 3D patterns for a long time (about a year), it’s quite difficult and takes a long time. But I don’t regret the time I spent on this new pattern - Christmas deer, I think it turned out great. It is...

                          I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                          My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                          None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                          The bags seem easier on the surface.
                          But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.
