Making Bigger Things Into Littler Things

Stumbled onto a good deal for a used band saw, which I had been considering picking up at some point.

Van life is best life.

I did a quick test cut on it to see if it would accurately shave 1/16th of an inch off the side of a board.

Looks like that's exactly what it did.

Good job, band saw.

The motor can be wired for either 120v or 240v. It comes from the factory at 120v and draws 14a which is quite a bit. Once I rewire the car hole I'm planning to put some 240v circuits in, so I'm going to do the rewiring for it at which point it'll be drawing only 7a which is much less light-flickering. But for now it'll do as-is.
