This thread was heavy on the tools at the beginning and I have a tool update to share here- I've been slowly working on a bandsaw for close to 10 years and I finally have moved it into my shop and been using it. It is from the late 20's/30's and I did as much of a rebuild as I could- New bearings, manually flattened table, resetting all the surfaces and making new parts to improve performance. It was a labor of love and I absolutely do love it

Here are some photos pre-installing in the shop:

This thing will last longer than me! And i'm expecting a lifetime of happy use. Feels good.
