Band Saw Power Feed

I usually cut stock that's a bit bigger than my little vari-speed Craftsman can handle. Had an old MAXNC motor set, fig'd hey why not make a power feed.

Here's a vid of it cutting a piece of bar stock:

You can see a table saw extension modified with a ball bearing drawer slide to support longer pieces.
The band saw is temporarily fasted to the bench using tee nuts under the bench and 1/4-20 bolts thru the mounting feet holes.
All the parts were milled on my Maxnc... the entire assembly is mounted with flat head screws in the table slot.



The control box allows for feed control with the pot, forward/reverse and fast override.
