I had planned on starting the saw last night but ended up building a workbench instead. Still have a bunch of details to add later.



If I don't get distracted, I will start the saw tonight.

Hi Roland. Seems we all bounce off each other for ideas. I completed yet another "Roland Rack" for a project.

I see you have started a bench.

I continually look at the photos by Brian Nolan for ideas for detailing,

some of which, I introduced on a current project.

I'm still gunna build your table saw. Which scale ?????

cheers mate

Thanks Jerry. I have help from my wife with colors if I stray to far. The tools are Vector Cut.

Mario. I laugh everytime I see Roland Rack.

I promise to pile as much as I can on the bench. Just remember my neatness afflecition.

Jerry, I bet Mario builds one in O and one in G scale. Might even get the one in G to work.

Back again, this time with the saw partly completed. Since I was to cheap to buy the upper blade attachment, I have to come up with something. I'm using the Western Scale Models G scale saw for an example. Let me know if I if it looks OK. Lots more to do.

Hi Roland

I just went thru my personal library of sawmill photos.

Regarding your blade tooth placement. I'm not saying they are incorrect, but maybe someone else could confirm.

Here are a couple of Aussie Sawmill Blades

If it is a left to right feed the bottom blade is backwards.
I'll have to look at mine when I get home for further critique.
Looks like the vertical pieces may be too close to the blades as well (kinda hard to see in these views)
