        When I first tried to post pictures I found my resolution was set too high 1024*768, I needed to set it at 800*600 and save the .jpg at that size. The result is that you get a smaller file size which is more compatible with this Web Talk.

        Did that help at all?
        It's not an optical illusion...it just looks like one

            Looking for information

            I read this thread with a lot of interest as I just got one of these saws a couple of weeks ago. Mine is actually in really good shape, so I don't plan a big refurb like Dave did. However, I was trying to find out some more information on these saws. Does anyone know what size blade these take? Is there any form of an owner's manual available someplace? I was told that Mr. Olson died a few years ago and the company shut down. I haven't been able to verify that one way or the other.
            Thanks for any help!

              Since this is a 10-year old thread, I hope she is still beautiful now as she was 10 years ago. You did an excellent job. Keep up the good work.

                Olson Bandsaw Refurbished - UPDATE

                MagGeorge,

                Thanks for the kind words. I also hope it still looks as good as it did. Truth is my wife and I are working on our second childhood (gas engine driven two-wheelers). When my wife got her own we needed floor space in the garage. Fortunately I have a couple other smaller metal cutting band saws. Also, I did very well on the sale of the Olson.

                Have a great day!


                Dave
