I just finished converting a band saw for cutting metal i used a 37 to 1 gear reduction. i have it mounted on a hinge plate togeather with its own motor,so i can switchbelts to the original motor for wood cutting.right now i have a blade speed of 64fpm which seems to slow. Ipicked up the reduction unit at a scrap yard for $30 it seemed to be better than arranging all the pulleys.So far it seems to be working fine,but i will have to use it some more for further evalation,anyone else tried this approach?
