Mark Dale - WoodyDusty
With Woody Dusty being used more and more, having the flexibility to move some of our larger equipment will help the workshop adapt to our needs. The two bandsaws are somewhat fixed in their positions and require a lot of effort to move.
Currently the Planer/Thickness is on a movable base and it allows users to reposition the machine to suit their needs. I’d like to achieve the same level of flexibility with the bandsaws.
I’m proposing we buy two of these kits (wood not included) for each bandsaw. Their design includes a pair of large levers that engage the castors, unlike other designs that require a spanner to engage them, these should be more user friendly for members.
Currently these are the cheapest online at Amazon due to the Black Friday sale but even with normal retail prices they’re still the 3rd cheapest.
Both the Green and Red bandsaws in Woody Dusty
£75 - £79 (2x £37.50 - £39.50) Amazon keep changing the price
Non sale price £94.70

Bandsaw training would cover the movable base. Members already inducted would be made aware of the changes via email, Telegram and forum.
