The worst, (or funniest), part of fitting a new bandsaw blade was untwisting it. I used to drop it on the floor and stand well back.  :D

Hmm.....when it's raised from the slider, which I presume it is when resting on the piece of work to be cut, does it not 'rock', rather than a smooth back and forth motion?


the frame that hold the blade can only slide along the pivoting arm, as it's constrained by two more pieces of the tube you can't see in the photo. The whole assembly - frame, pivot arm, motor, mount and linkage - pivots. This means the cut starts short and at a steep angle, and gets longer and shallower as it progresses. That's typical of powered hacksaws but is a design compromise. They're intended to be simple, robust(proper commercial ones!), cheap and compact; a mechanism that keeps the cut parallel would be a lot more complicated. It's a roughing out tool that can be left unattended to munch through large stock. More sophisticated cutting is done on bandsaws.
Agree with that Nick. Worked at my best job for 25 years. Started off with a Hacksaw type, (it was there when i started). Suggested buying a bandsaw and they bought a Startright automatic one. Great piece of kit. Even used to leave it running when i left off on short billets and it switched off when it tripped the microswitch on the barfeed.  The clamping vice had rollers to feed the bars out to the workstop.

Or.....who the fck has owned a magazine rack within the last fifty years?  ::)

This useful little helper can also hold your LP's and 78's :)
You'd know  :-*


The old record player would hold five or six 45RPM singles at one time. :y
Yes but, if you overloaded the spindle, two or three might drop at once, sending the stylus skidding along the record.  ;D
Oh the joys of the multi change Dansette. ;D

Loads on the bbc, another article this morning

Iran nuclear deal: Shadow of sabotage hangs over critical talks https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-56716472

Yes, but unless I have missed it in the news fog of HRH as Varche rightly suggests, not a word in any live BBC (or ITV) live news broadcast although it could become a major international issue. ;)
That's because it's nothing new, they've been holing each other's ships for months, Israel has been bombing Iranian convoys heading into Syria or, if they got through, bombing them once there.
Blood on the rooftops, Genesis, 1976..."Let's skip the news boy, I'll make some tea
The Arabs and the Jews boy, too much for me"
Wind & Wuthering, a great album.  :y
I thought they actually improved when Peter Gabriel went his own way and Phil Collins stepped up.  Peter Gabriel was brilliant too, of course.
I think the other way Steve. To me the loss of Gabriel and Steve Hackett started a slow process of decline. Their first 2 albums after that were good but then it started to get too commercial for me.
