  • Self-Adjusting Resawing Jig

    I built this custom resawing fence out of a bunch of skateboard wheels that I bought on Amazon. I wanted a self adjusting system to hold the stock tight to the fence when I hand feed 10-12' long boards through my 36" bandsaw. I use rough 2x6's and 2x8's to build my paddleboards so I needed something that would self adjust as I cut my planks. The two tensioning arms are each tensioned by a trampoline spring and the heights can be adjusted with different spacers. There is a 5/8" bolt through the table that threads into a steel plate under the table. The springs have 3 gross tensionn adjustments that you can see in the picture. The tension is fine tuned with a eye-bolt anchored by a threaded knob just out of the picture. It is working really well and I thought it might help some other hollow wood board builders.


    Here are the links to the parts I used:

    That's awesome Silver! I also am a big fan of the "Wright guides" I have them on 2 of my bandsaws and I think they are the best. There is a little mom and pop shop in Oregon that still sells the parts and even full sets of new guides.

      That's awesome! What did you use for the metal parts or is it a custom fab job?

        The green metal parts were made out of 1/4" x 1.25" thick flat bar and 1/4" thick 1.5" x 2" angle iron.

          I just made something like this although not nearly as fancy as this one. Just 4 threaded caster wheels, 4 springs slightly modified to the correct length, and 4 bolts. It cuts thick wood into thin wood, well slightly under 1/8" thin.
