Bandsaw Woes…

I had a minor problem running in for dinner with my Harbor Freight 4×6 bandsaw one evening.  I had left the stock chucked in the bandsaw and it was sticking out of the threshold of the garage.  When the garage door came down as I ran in for dinner, the garage door sent the band saw flying and broke the pivot bracket:-(

I’m really glad the band saw came assembled with the Pivot Bracket installed originally.  It was a 2-person job and not easy to get everything lined up and then positioned correctly.

I tried a JET bandsaw pivot bracket because I could get the part faster, but it ended up not being the same size and angle!  Once I got an email back from Harbor Freight, they had the part and it was really inexpensive and came in about 1 week.
