Fine Woodworking magazine’s power-tool guru Roland Johnson believes a bandsaw should be the first power tool you get for your shop.

But getting the best performance out of your bandsaw isn’t as simple as it seems.

In this class Johnson reveals bandsaw secrets that will be invaluable for both beginning woodworkers and veteran furniture makers.

He carefully explains:

▪ The anatomy of the tool

▪ The crucial function of each part

▪ What is beam strength and why is it so important?

He walks you through the tips and techniques to adjust each part of the tool to make it work reliably and safely.

He evaluates the options you’ll have to decide about when buying a saw.

He maps out the precise way to change a blade and adjust it for perfect cutting.

He explains the thinking behind his list of five must-have bandsaw blades.

He covers the possibilities for upgrading the features and improving the performance of a bandsaw.

After taking this online video class, you’ll understand your bandsaw – inside and out.
