The adjustment of the band saw is called “metate” = sharpening. If the band saw is not sharpened so that it can be cut well, not only will the accuracy of the sawn be reduced, but there is also the danger that the band saw will crack, which is one of the indispensable roles for sawing.
At Suikoushya, we share traditional Japanese woodworking techniques and skills. Since it is a small group system, we will provide guidance tailored to each individual’s skills, from beginners to woodworking professionals. Please join us!
I look forward to sharing fine woodworking with you.
