Another homebuilt bandmill question
« on: July 02, 2005, 08:33:11 AM »
Any thoughts on the use of 18" pulleys for band wheels ( i have these ) instead of larger diameter wheels ?

thanks
Dan

I used 18" pulleys on my homebuilt.  7 years and no regrets.  Go for it.

Thanks for the replys. I just wanted to make sure it didn't limit my ability to cut .
