Super Easy Band Saw Log Sled
When using log stabilizer / log sled / log jig, I build my first cut, then overturn the log, so the horizontal side rests on the table. After that, then reconnect the jig to allow me to obtain another linear line cut off the fence, ninety level off the first.
After that, the sled is no longer wanted.
To construct this jig, or sled, you need:
1) A bar clamp lengthy enough to clamp both finale of the logs you are going to factory into boards.
Keep in mind, equipped with a three base clamp, this jig can be closed down to hold a log only a few inches lengthy. As such, you can utilize a four base bar clamp, if you don't mind the surfeit.
2) Two slice of 3/4" plywood a pair inches longer than the clamp you select.
The slice of 3/4" plywood the clamp ascend on is two inches broad. The second piece, which rides against the fence, is two and three quarters (2-3/4") wide and the same length as the other, give or take an inch or so.
3) Two 1-1/2" (1-1/2") screws to mount the clamp to the two inch (2") pieces of plywood.
4) Depending on how you want to join the two pieces of plywood together, you'll need about four 1-1/4" screws or nails. I also glued mine, but, with screws, that shouldn't be necessary.
Concerning the two piece of plywood utilize to create this log‐cutting jig. The clamp will doze on the first pieces and the second is only to keep the clamp aside from the fence, so it doesn't catch. The bar portion of the clamp will lay on the edge of the plywood and will be secured to it at both ends.
Once you’ve congregated your log cutting jig, you merely need to:
1) Mount your fence to the table.
2) Set your log on the table and roll it to a location for your first cut.
3) Clamp the’ log―tightly.
4) Turn‐on the band saw and dirt collection, then begin cutting, while holding the clamp against the fence or down to the table.
5) After the initial cut, slacken the clamp, turn the log so the horizontal side is down, re-secure the log, then re‐position the fence and create your next cut.
6) With two―square sides, ninety degrees to each other, you can end cutting the log into boards just using the fence or other re‐saw guide.
