We just finished refurbishing the Roll-In Metal Cutting Band Saw. This saw was donated to The MakerBarn. It was in pretty rough shape because it had been sitting in a storage warehouse for many years.
The machine was stripped down to nuts and bolts. Bearings were replaced. Paint was stripped and repainted. A few parts had to be fabricated, and the rubber tires were replaced. The vise needed quite a bit of machine work, but it too came out fine. The motor was rebuilt, and new electrics installed. The machine even has MakerBarn’s MACS system installed for safety. It’s all ready for some metal cutting action!
