The type of tool and the tools working area will help determine how much light is needed. Table saws need to have at least their table top well illuminated. The out feed table needs some light but not as much. For a table saw a four foot fluorescent tube light over the table saw table will provide plenty of light.
So whether you decide to build a bandsaw or something else with the things you have collecting dust in your shop, dont throw them away when spring cleaning time comes, you may just need them later when you think of something that you want or need, but dont want to pay the price commercially. A couple of other things I made with things just laying around in my shop was a utility trailer and a small overhead hoist, which enabled me to lift heavy things such as my rototiller and sprayer up to the top level of my shop.
So I thought, I wonder if I could make myself a bandsaw out of these things that I had. I wondered what I would use to power it. I had a 3 phase motor of about 3hp, so I thought I could use that motor and convert it to single-phase to power a saw. So I got all this stuff together and decided that other than the band, I believe I have everything I need to build one. For the band I looked at Sears, and saw that 93 1/2 inches was a standard band, so that way I could figure out the dimensions of the frame to mount the wheels.
