You may think I'm crazy, I took my bandsaw off

Keith Newton
My old 36" bandsaw still has the metal rub guides, and the thrust guide has a big disk with the axis of rotation aligned fore and aft to line of feed, which has a sheering effect on the back of the blade. One night I was sawing out a big blank and notice my shop apron standing straight out under the top. I leaned out to the right to see how close it was coming to the blade. I'm sure there was an audible gasp when I saw the volume of sparks mixed with the fine dust streaming into vacuum hose.
