6. With the use of a fence, it is easy to make straight cuts or repetitive cuts of the same length with a bandsaw. 7. You can switch to a metal cutting blade with a bandsaw and slow the bandspeed down to about 2-300 FPM(feet per minute). This can be done by changing the pullies and adding another reduction. 8. There is less waste of wood with a bandsaw because you have a very narrow nerf cut. The wider saw blade of a circular saw would eat up much more wood than the narrow nerf of a bandsaw.
Most basements are not air conditioned spaces, so heat from the lights becomes an issue during the summer months. Hang fluorescent light fixtures in between the joists. Attach a light weight chain to the sides of the adjacent joists and suspend the fluorescent light from the chain. Hang the fluorescent light fixture so that it is flush with the bottom of the joists. This will help keep it out of the way and still provide ample light. It might be necessary to use an additional light or two because of the shading caused by recessing the light.
So whether you decide to build a bandsaw or something else with the things you have collecting dust in your shop, dont throw them away when spring cleaning time comes, you may just need them later when you think of something that you want or need, but dont want to pay the price commercially. A couple of other things I made with things just laying around in my shop was a utility trailer and a small overhead hoist, which enabled me to lift heavy things such as my rototiller and sprayer up to the top level of my shop.
