In this post I add a Lumbersmith Sawmill Push Bar to my portable bandsaw. I did this because it makes it easier to get a constant pressure on the bandsaw and because I think it is a little safer because I am farther from the blade.
I purchased this push bar from the lumbersmith site and was pretty pleased with the idea and the quality of construction.
I was not totally happy because their was a manufacturer defect. The push bar was supposed to be swaged so it could push into the arms of the bar. The one I got was not swaged so the three pieces of the bar would not fit together.
The company was nice about it and offered me two choices – send it back and they would fix it, or I could fix it myself and they would send me some blades. I took the blades.
