I spent some time earlier in the week getting the bandsaw at Hackspace Manchester working, so now its cutting again! The main problem with the bandsaw is cutting straight, as it was an ebay purchase it diddnt come with a fence, so there was nothing to run the cut material against.
This model of bandsaw hasnt been made in around 30 years, so trying to buy a new one will be impossible, and ebay is too much hard work.
Though we do have a 3d printer... and a workshop. Idea!
