Thoroughly covers all aspects of the bandsaw. Great book worth getting.
I stumbled across the previous version of this book on clearance after I ordered my bandsaw. Not having a bandsaw before, I felt this was something I needed. I read about 2/3 the book by the time my bandsaw arrived. So far, this book has been a wealth of information. I feel it is well written and provided clear information on the topics without being wordy. I have already learned a lot.
For anyone who needs to learn about their bandsaw or just wants to expand their knowledge this is a great book. I'm sure the revised version is even better. Definitely worth getting.

rookie start up
I bought an old 16" walker-Turner saw said to be a 1948 model.
It had been passed down in a family all these years. I was a friend of the last owner and when he died I offered to buy the saw. It had been kept in great shape. But, I have no experience with a band saw so I need information and this publication caught my eye. It answered most of my questions about blades, how to etc. I am very pleased. Now I'm ready to start making sawdust.

I just purchased my 1st bandsaw,...
I just purchased my 1st bandsaw, a 14 inch Ricon. I also ordered this book. It really got me started with the bandsaw. It's nicely technical in several areas such as choosing blades. It has lots of comparisons, charts showing different radaii, etc. It is well worth the money, maybe even for those who have had bandsaws for a while. I'm starting back through my copy now highlighting the things I had forgotten by the time I finished reading it the first time.
