    There is a tendency for some drips to travel back on the blade and hit the rear frame. This
    will get worse the more of an angle the saw starts on. So having designed up the idea for a
    rear catchment s...

    Not claiming much originalty in this as you can find a number of examples on the net. However I
    thought I would share my attempt at a coolant system on these small hobby metal
    bandsaws.Starting out wi...

    The stand starting to look like its old self. Need to get on to the coolant side of things and
    will document that for those
    interested.https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/IcVrBTq3fDlasGd9-cQu4YqNQK1Rp6N...

    Okay we are back. The drip tray is pretty much done and the paint is drying so while that
    happens I have gotten the lathe back on the stand and its all levelled up. This time no rubber
    pads under the ...

    I knocked up some brackets from leftover 2mm sheet from the tray and some 25x3mm flat. These
    will get welded onto the stand and act as supports/slides for the flood
    tray.https://lh3.googleusercontent....

    Cheers Rod. I think given the amount of time I'll use coolant I think if it's not leaking in
    any noticeable way after half an hour then it's probably fine. Also once I put a couple of
    coats of paint o...

    Thanks gents. I've had a look at the base and even tried a little heat but I think there is
    just too much tension in there to release via heat shrinking. Looking about on youtube all the
    examples and ...
