My father-in-law gave me a 10" Black & Decker table-top bandsaw. All
the parts appear to be there, albeit a bit dirty or rusty. It's a
three-wheel bandsaw that uses a 56-1/8 blade.
I finally picked up a blade, but before I install it, I'd like to
clean it up. What's the best way to go about cleaning the
rollers/blocks and such?
Soak them in rust remover for a few minutes? Then wire brush what's
left? I want to be sure the rollers aren't going to be a problem. I'm
primarily talking about the upper head. I haven't taken it apart yet
to see underneath, but I hope it's in better shape being covered up.
I don't have room for a bigger bandsaw (as much as I would love one)
and was surprised when my father-in-law showed up one day with this.
I do woodturning, scrollsaw and carving and always had to go use his
old Delta 12" (scarey thing). Unfortunately he passed in March and his
wife isn't sharing. However, I'm grateful for this one and am hoping I
can get it into decent usable shape to keep around for a while.
I'm not uber experienced with bandsaws, but picked up the bandsaw
book. So any information and or tips greatly appreciated.
...the daughter-in-law. ;)
