6. With the use of a fence, it is easy to make straight cuts or repetitive cuts of the same length with a bandsaw. 7. You can switch to a metal cutting blade with a bandsaw and slow the bandspeed down to about 2-300 FPM(feet per minute). This can be done by changing the pullies and adding another reduction. 8. There is less waste of wood with a bandsaw because you have a very narrow nerf cut. The wider saw blade of a circular saw would eat up much more wood than the narrow nerf of a bandsaw.
Most basements are not air conditioned spaces, so heat from the lights becomes an issue during the summer months. Hang fluorescent light fixtures in between the joists. Attach a light weight chain to the sides of the adjacent joists and suspend the fluorescent light from the chain. Hang the fluorescent light fixture so that it is flush with the bottom of the joists. This will help keep it out of the way and still provide ample light. It might be necessary to use an additional light or two because of the shading caused by recessing the light.
The picture above shows the bandsaw I built using the things mentioned. It took me a couple months, since I only worked on it in the evenings and on weekends, but I figure I spent around $100 to make me a functioning bandsaw that cuts up to 12 inch logs. A bandsaw like this would have cost me probably $1200 or more to buy commercially. I later invested in a new motor so I could run it on straight 110 single phase instead of 220 volts single phase. That cost me about $200. I also wrote and kept the plans to the saw so that I could either build another one or share the plans with others.
