    Like the MythBusters say, I am an expert, but don’t try this yourself at home.your instructable is a complete roadmap of how to do things and in the correct order.

    Like the MythBusters say, I am an expert, but don’t try this yourself at home.your instructable is a complete roadmap of how to do things and in the correct order. Despite that I think that the person who follows these instructions successfully, already has the tools and experience to do this on his own. Band saws being the simple things that they are, can be disassembled and restored with your guidance alone, but the parts list is major support element. Since the original home shop bandsaw design has not changed since the Tool was invented, almost any technical information from traditional band saws will work. Newer makers like Rikon and Laguna have introduced improvements and refinements that do not relate to what rehabilitation requires.while the roadmap covers the steps, the inexperienced needs detailed instructions on how to replace the tires and to pull of bearings and replace them. If constrained in how many pages or words can be in the instructable, leave out the details of cleaning, derusting, degreasing and painting. No offense to you or your readers, but even Homer Simpson & Krusty the Klown can figure that out.All in all, good work.
