I've had this old Craftsman horizontal bandsaw for over 5 years. Picked up a new blade, tires, belt, etc for it back then. I had to machine some new bushings for the pivot and such. Then it just sat.
Finally got around to finishing it up today. Not as pretty as Doc's machine restorations, but it works, and I have one less unfinished project making me feel guilty in the garage
Handy little thing, but I think you need more weight on the uphill side. Even that small saw with a fine-tooth blade should have pretty much sailed right through that chunk of thin perf.
Ever since I got my DoAll vertical, I've barely touched my big Wellsaw horizontal. I know I shouldn't get rid of it- it can cut off longer material than the DoAll can- but it does take up a lot of room in my now-very-very-cramped shop.
