Hello everyone! I've not posted on here for a while so I hope you're all well. 

I'm looking to learn how to change blades to something finer. As it happens, what I'm doing isn't particularly picky about whether it's done on on a band or saw; I think learning the band saw would be more useful for projects in general, but for now I don't really care!

So, when would the next LVL 2 induction be available? It doesn't have to be soon either, so don't rearrange anything, I'd just like to know so I can organize my projects around it a bit. 

Peace and love, everyone!

I do Bandsaw level 2 inductions, is there anyone else who also wants to
do lvl2 as it makes sense to do in small groups?

It includes :
* Maintenance and cleaning of the saw
* Checking and aligning blades
* Changing blades
* Cutting metals
* Fine cutting
* Angled and multi-angled cuts
* Working with rough and oddly shaped materials

Requirement :
* Have already done level1 and have experience using the saw
* rLab Wiki account (which can be created on the day)

I'd be interested in some of those aspects.
Maintenance and cleaning of the saw
* Checking and aligning blades
* Changing blades
* Cutting metals
* Fine cutting
* Angled and multi-angled cuts
Particularly
* SAFELY Working with rough and oddly shaped materials - pieces of dried tree trunk

Kind regards
Mr.G

I would like to do an l2 induction if possible. I have done the l1 introduction but only have a little experience using the bandsaw. I was actually going to ask which blade would be best for making cuts in some quite thick (160mm) oak so it would be good if we could cover that.

I could do any evening next week from about 18:30 onwards or most times next weekend.
