One Souped-Up Bandsaw

To make our bandsaw more efficient, we mounted a Sears outlet switch and connected a three-outlet adapter to one end. By just flipping the one switch, we can turn the bandsaw, light, and vacuum all at one time on or off.

When building WOODŽ magazine projects, we make each tool work extra hard. To make our bandsaw more efficient, we mounted a Sears outlet switch (part no. 60382, Division 9, source no. 113) and connected a three-outlet adapter to one end as shown in the photo left. By just flipping the one switch, we can turn the bandsaw, light, and vacuum all at one time on or off.


For dust control, we've fitted the base cavity of our Delta 14" bandsaw stand with a Sears Craftsman Portable Wet/Dry Vacuum (cat. no. 113.177571) as shown left. Then, we connected it to our bandsaw dust port with 2-1/2" flexible hose (we cut the 10'-long hose to 3') and adapters (cat. no. 16909). Although not necessary, we enclosed the vacuum to make it less noticeable and reduce the noise. If your bandsaw base doesn't have room for a vacuum, set the vacuum alongside and still make use of the switch and three-saw adapter.
