    Default Any idea what this is?

    Hello Everyone,

    First Thank you for this amazing site, it's been very helpful for me lately.


    I bought a box of band saw blades at an industrial auction and this was with them. Any ideas what it's for? The length is about 12' same as the blade.

    I think you need a special platen of sorts in place of the top and bottom blade guides to use the band. I've never seen one used but DoAll has them in their catalogs.

    Wow, Thanks for the quick reply, I thought it might be. Never heard of it before though.

    Yep, it's a band file. I have a band-filer, but no band files to fit it. it will probably get new guides and be converted to bandsaw duty.
