Band Saw Users Guide

So from the 1989 Popular Mechanics yearbook comes this nice band saw users guide. The band saw is in most opinions the most useful machine in the shop. It can do most cuts that other machines can and much more. Crosscuts are limited by the throat depth, but there is not much else that it can't do.

There are many user guides out there, this one stands out for it's nice table extension plan  and a great circle cutting guide plan. I have seen many different circle cutting jigs, this one is easy to build, the two eccentrics make it accurate and easy to adjust.
