Bandsaw is down (and other words to satisfy talk)

The bandsaw is down and locked out right now. the drive belt finally gave up its life.
Tim and Freddy are working on it, but we have no real timeline for a fix yet.
The good news is the blade should hold out a bit longer.

the tool status board has been updated to reflect it is inoperable.

WE will be rebuilding the saw while it is down. It will take some time to get some parts. So folks, don’t expect it running Monday.

Great reply. It lets folks know that the delay will be for improvement, greater reliability, and correcting other issues. (thats what I read when I see the word rebuild)

FYI, we have not forgotten about the Bandsaw nor is it on the back burner. We(@FreddyCalvert really) have ordered the parts to rebuild the saw.

I’m looking forward to rebuilding, hopefully in a somewhat group effort as others have expressed interest in helping rebuild it.
