New Bandsaw

Postby pgk » Fri Aug 11, 2017 3:13 pm

Quite a few years ago I wanted a Ellis 1600 but because of lack of room in my garage I decided on purchasing a used Scotchman coldsaw, I made a base with heavy duty castors so I could move it when needed. I got tired of dealing with the coolant splashing all over the place and the lack of cut capacity. Finally bit the bullet and ordered a Ellis 1600, anxious to try this new saw out.. :) Now I just need to find a spot for it..

Looks like a very nice piece of equipment. I think a lot of us have space problems.

This should keep the critters from getting into our garbage. New saw works like a charm.
