Designed and manufactured here at Axminster HQ, the Bandsaw Buddy is the must-have accessory for every bandsaw owner out there. Do you need an easy, quick and accurate way of aligning your blade, fence or table? Perhaps you’re looking for a quick way of marking bowl blanks, or maybe you want precise, wafer thin veneers for that furniture project. Always keep your buddy on hand, the integrated magnets allow simple storage on your bandsaw, keeping it close to hand and ready for action.
Blade Alignment Tool
Rare earth magnets securely hold the rule to the blade. This enables you to align your rip fence and table perfectly parallel with the blade. Always use it on a new blade. Why? An old blade may have been twisted or kinked during use, knocking out the accuracy.
A convenient and accurate metric thickness gauge, great for veneering.
Circle Marking Gauge
Draw circles for bowl blanks from 75mm to 400mm radius in increments of 25mm.
Accurately machined from anodised aluminium, it's handy for accurate marking.
Bandsaw Buddy is a unique bandsaw blade aligning tool. Bandsaw Buddy allows you to check the alignment of the bandsaw blade to the face of the fence. Most other checks only require the use of a combination or engineer’s square. Truing the fence to the blade is tricky. Bandsaw Buddy has two rare earth magnets which hold it firmly on the blade. At 250mm long it is easy to spot any discrepancy and then make necessary adjustments. The magnets will keep it safely stored on the bandsaw’s frame when not in use. A scale on the tip helps set the bandsaw fence for cutting veneers or thin boards. Holes along the Buddy’s length at 12.5mm intervals allow you to draw arcs or circles in 25mm steps from 75mm to 400mm, a useful feature for marking curves or when cutting bowl blanks. Accurately machined from anodised aluminium, it also makes a handy straight edge.
