Vintage drill powered bandsaw








My friend Sotiris gave me this old bandsaw that gets it's power from a regular drill.

I am trying to restore it. It needs a little greasing, a new blade and a safety cap for the top part.

Apart from that it has a tilting table and a tension screw for the blade.

You add a nut bolt in the special place then you secure the drill in place and lock the screw on the chuck.

I hope I'll give it a try as soon as I make it usable and safe.
