How can I cut wood 3.5 inches thick with Dewalt Scroll saw?


nope... throat on scroll saw is of fixed height... beside, all scrollsaw blades are of fixed length, i would suggest use of bandsaw with very narrow blade with minimal kerf. do not use pressure on the blade! you will then have same cut through the thickness of the wood! setup bandsaw correctly, do not overtension it - see my other instructables pertaining to the bandsaw and regulation/setup of it

if you find my solution helpful - do not me shy... give some points... :-)

Jammed my 6230 bandsaw during a cut and now it won't start. Are their fuses I can replace?


Go to Milwaukee Tool website and try to check if you can download a manual or electrical diagram there. You can call or email them. Check the motor capacitor.
Are you using an old or new band saw blade? If it's old/dull, try different blade. If it's new, the weld might be really bad. Old Blade and Bad weld can cause the blade to jump off. I purchased band saw blades on www.sawblade.com . Great quality blades; they have porta band blades. Call them.

When I am making a cut, the blade will drift to the right making it difficult to make a straight cut. What would be the cure?


It's probably time for a new blade. If you are using a toothless diamond coated blade it can be difficult to see that the diamonds have been rubbed off. It drifts because it cuts more easily on the side of the blade where you have more diamond left. Be sure to use enough water to keep the blade from shedding it's diamonds too soon.

Blade is tipping on the wheel and ruining the blades just wondering how to adjust the wheel. or is it the top wheel or the bottom ,one must be out of line


It sounds like the upper wheel is tilted out and what happens is the blade will drift outward. What you need to do is power off the unit, open up the upper and lower wheel doors, find the adjustment knob on the back of the upper wheel, and adjust this while spinning the wheel by hand.

The blade needs to be on the machine when you do this and do not try to make this adjustment with the power on. Make small adjustments till the blade tracks in the center of the upper and lower wheel.

NOTE: Prior to re-elignment, make sure the tension on the blade is set to the correct tension. This will differ depending on the blade thickness. You want the blade to be tight, but don't over tighten the blade because this could cause wear or even cause the blade to snap when using the bandsaw.

I hope this helps.

Its been my experience that when a Band Saw makes a clicking noise its a blade issue i.e cracked,bent tooth etc. I would change the blade and see if that helps.

In the Market for a better Band Saw


Everybody wants to resaw, but the only saw I've seen that will do it is a resaw, they are big, powerful machines. I have an old delta 14, with an aftermarket 1 hp motor, trying to resaw is a nightmare. I don't try anymore. Jet makes a big resaw, so does grizzly, both Taiwan machines, what isn't>? But they work. If you are lucky enough to find an old bandsaw with 36 inch wheels and a ten HP motor, that would be nice, you could resaw whole cars in that thing.!I The $300 special might be worth getting and customizing to work, You would need a big blade, about 1 inch min, and a bigger motor, say 2HP min, Then hope that the tracking system will take the heavy cuts. When I have to slice something , I do it first on the table saw, cut both sides, then run it through the band saw at its max cut, 6 1/2 inches, then plow it through the planer. Always a way around this stuff. Hope this helps.

How do I adjust a craftsman bandsaw to keep it from pinching when cutting circles. I have inheirted the bandsaw with no manual


Hi Alvin,

Lower the vertical guide down until it is just above the cutting surface.

However, a standard band saw blade is primarily for straight cuts. They are too wide to make sharp turns.

If you are attempting intricate work requiring extreme angled cuts, a scroll saw is better suited for your needs.

An alternative to check on would be if any thinner scroll emulator type blades are available for your model. They don't as well on heavy jobs, but you'll get the maneuvering you need on the thinner stuff.

Best regards
Mike

Blade width usage


Blade Width is important when purchasing a band saw. Most saws accept narrow 1/8" blades for cutting detailed designs and tight curves. Better saws also accept wider blades. Wide blades don’t flex as much as narrow ones, but they make accurate straight cuts in thick stock quicker. There are also some wide blades available that can cut metal.
