In Detail

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.

Four great uses, one small price!

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.

Aligning blade with fence

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.

Measuring thickness

Thickness Gauge

A convenient and accurate metric thickness gauge, great for veneering.

Drawing a circle

Circle Marking Gauge

Draw circles for bowl blanks from 75mm to 400mm radius in increments of 25mm.

Marking a straight line

Straight Edge

Accurately machined from anodised aluminium, it's handy for accurate marking.

Not a great deal of use.

It would have to be used with a wide blade to be of any use and as my bandsaw takes a maximum blade of 5/8" it is only an indication if it is wildly out of true.
It does not give an accurate measure.

Supplement to previous review

I have not changed the star system and stand by the not great review I left previously, however I have changed the blade to a 23mm blade and that one shows my fence guide as correct. I think the inaccuracy was due to me originally testing on a 14mm blade. OR it could possibly be some tire wear on my bandsaw on the smaller blade size.

SO in brief, I retract what I said about inaccuracy, I think they just need a wider blade to function fully. but I do stand by the countersink not being enough for sensible use of standard pencil and braddle. The 7mm is reduced to 5mm by a 2mm countersink which is not enough for my braddle to hols fast on sawn timber, not for my pencil to make a visible line. 3.5mm countersink leaving 3.5mm hole depth would work much better.
