Shop-made Bandsaw Re-saw Fence

Listing #62   Listed on: 10/13/2011

Click to View Member Profile Member Contact Info Shop Built Equipment Gallery

I made this somewhat crude re-saw fence in about 15 minutes and it works great. Starting with a 3-5" wide, 20" long piece of 8/4 stock, joint a 90 degree face and edge. Attach a scrap piece of 3/4" pvc water pipe (somewhat shorter than the stock you'll be re-sawing) to the jointed face perpendicular to the length.

Do this by first preparing the pipe at the drill press by drilling a couple 5/16" holes along one side (large enough to accept the head of a pan-head wood screw), then changing to a 1/8" bit (large enough to accept the shank of the wood screw) and plunging through the center of the first hole to drill out the other side (the pipe rests in a block of wood with a 'v' groove in it designed for drilling holes in chair legs for spindles.

The pipe is clamped to this block to prevent rotating while drilling and stays in that orientation so all holes are drilled from the same side). Strike a perpendicular line across the face of your 8/4 stock with a square, then align the pipe with the 3/8" holes facing you to that line by sighting through those holes until you see your line through the 1/8" holes on the other side. Hold in place while you screw in a 1" panhead wood screw into the 3/8" hole, through the pipe and out the 1/8" hole into the board on the other side (keep the end of the pipe a bit away from the jointed edge of your 8/4 board so there's no overhang).

To re-saw, first set up your bandsaw with a wide blade with as few teeth as possible and tension it well (I use a 3/4" blade with 3 tpi and get it tight as is safe). Make sure the blade is 90 degrees to your bandsaw table and set the upper guide a little higher than the width of the stock you're re-sawing. Prep the stock by jointing all sides square, then using a pen, scribe equidistant lines along the edge that will be face up, spaced at a bit over the the finished thickness you're looking for (the re-sawed pieces will be jointed and/or planed and/or drum-sanded to the desired finished dimension).

Next attach the jig to the bandsaw table - if you have fence for your table the jig can be bolted to that or as in my case a couple quick clamps well tightened do the trick. Adjust the jig so the edge of the pipe closest to the blade is just in front of the teeth (1/16-1/8"), is parallel to the blade (adjust the blade or shim under the jig until it is) and is approx. the distance from the blade as the lines on your stock are spaced apart.

This last measurement doesn't have to be exact as this style of re-sawing doesn't rely on a fence to produce the the thickness of the finished stock but rather the pipe provides a 'pivot point' around which the stock travels while you cut along the lines you've scribed. It took me awhile to understand this concept-and several ruined boards-but it turns out that unless you have a dedicated re-saw machine with a 2" wide blade your bandsaw blade will wander through the stock.

Although with this method you're really 'free-handing' the cut, by using the pipe to pivot the stock around you can compensate for this wander and stay right on your line. Practice with scrap, use a slow feed rate (especially with hard woods) and learn your bandsaw's wandering tendencies. With practice, I'm now able to consistently re-saw stock to 1/8" with less than 1/32" deviation. Happy (re)sawing!

If you are going to adopt photographs at nighttime, make sure you use a program. You must learn what settings on the digital camera are best suited for night photographs. Also, be mindful that despite the display on, particular photographs might not exactly turn out when it is darker outside the house. Be sure to look into the picture and ensure that you have got a high quality one.

Do your very best to ensure that the potential agent understands the benefit of all the details that you may have specified. When they will not fully enjoy all the specifics that you may have communicated to them, you may very well get end results that you are not really happy with.

FORUM GUIDELINES: Please review the guidelines below before posting at WOODWEB's Interactive Message Boards (return to top)

  • WOODWEB is a professional industrial woodworking site. Hobbyist and homeowner woodworking questions are inappropriate.
  • Messages should be kept reasonably short and on topic, relating to the focus of the forum. Responses should relate to the original question.
  • A valid email return address must be included with each message.
  • Advertising is inappropriate. The only exceptions are the Classified Ads Exchange, Machinery Exchange, Lumber Exchange, and Job Opportunities and Services Exchange. When posting listings in these areas, review the posting instructions carefully.
  • Subject lines may be edited for length and clarity.
  • "Cross posting" is not permitted. Choose the best forum for your question, and post your question at one forum only.
  • Messages requesting private responses will be removed - Forums are designed to provide information and assistance for all of our visitors. Private response requests are appropriate at WOODWEB's Exchanges and Job Opportunities and Services.
  • Messages that accuse businesses or individuals of alleged negative actions or behavior are inappropriate since WOODWEB is unable to verify or substantiate the claims.
  • Posts with the intent of soliciting answers to surveys are not appropriate. Contact WOODWEB for more information on initiating a survey.
  • Excessive forum participation by an individual upsets the balance of a healthy forum atmosphere. Individuals who excessively post responses containing marginal content will be considered repeat forum abusers.
  • Responses that initiate or support inappropriate and off-topic discussion of general politics detract from the professional woodworking focus of WOODWEB, and will be removed.
  • Participants are encouraged to use their real name when posting. Intentionally using another persons name is prohibited, and posts of this nature will be removed at WOODWEB's discretion.
  • Comments, questions, or criticisms regarding Forum policies should be directed to WOODWEB's Systems Administrator
    (return to top).

    Carefully review your message before clicking on the "Send Message" button - you will not be able to revise the message once it has been sent.

    You will be notified of responses to the message(s) you posted via email. Be sure to enter your email address correctly.

    WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.

    Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).

    Libel:   Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.

    Improper Decorum:   Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).

    Advertising:   The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).

    Repeated Forum Abuse: Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.

    There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).

    The staff of WOODWEB assume no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted at WOODWEB's Message Boards. Participants should undertake the use of machinery, materials and methods discussed at WOODWEB's Message Boards after considerate evaluation, and at their own risk. WOODWEB reserves the right to delete any messages it deems inappropriate. (return to top)
