Bandsaw Lewiston ME

Woodworking is a lot of fun. Although casters make this cumbersome piece of machinery much easier to move, you should only install them if you’re comfortable handling heavy loads. You will be surprised how much you can do when working with wood. You need a really good bandsaw to get you started. A bandsaw is the power tool used for precision woodcutting. Now you can even get a mobile bandsaw. You will find competitive pricing at the hardware supply stores in Lewiston, ME listed below.

Bandsaw

Mobile Bandsaw

Horsing my bandsaw out of the way was a real pain until I installed a pair of large casters (see Source, below). Now my saw has a built-in two-wheel cart. During use, the saw sits firmly on the floor, because the wheels don’t touch the ground. They’re also out of the way. Tipping the saw and balancing it while moving is tricky until you get the hang of it, because the saw is top-heavy and awkward to hold. Although casters make this cumbersome piece of machinery much easier to move, you should only install them if you’re comfortable handling heavy loads. 

Stabilize the saw with your foot when you tilt it back and set it down. Be careful! The wheels make the saw hard to control until you find its balance point.
