    They're really nice. Did you get that chopping bandsaw in the UK? I've been wanting one like that but can only find them in the US

    Did you only use the galv weld on the beads? Was it not necessary to prime the entire pieces with a primer / the same stuff?

    Morning all

    Band saw is a femi from these guys:

    Cracking saw, very precise cuts.

    I just used galv weld spray on the welds, so far the furniture is holding up fine looking like the day I made it. I ran out of galv weld on the little table and risked it. There is significant rust coming through on a couple of the welds already. If I was doing it again a would probably have something like this galvanised.


    As for total cost, I would say off the top of my head about £400 all in with cushions and decking.

    Yes I have a Femme 120 XL I think it is. Great saw, cuts well. The original blade I had lasted ages, put the new blade on and it’s lasted no time at all :doh: I’ll buy another and see how it goes.
