rail yard studios | new tech captures old tech

We had just completed some adjustments to our 60-year old Kalamazoo horizontal band saw. The blade had been slipping off of the wheel, and we had to adjust the tracking to get it back in working order.

We were looking at it closely and trying to be sure everything was going as it should as the machine ran. So we decided to shoot some slo-mo video of it in action.

It looks like all hell is breaking loose at the point where the blade is cutting with little pieces of sawdust flying into the camera and bouncing around.

Pretty cool how new tech can make old tech make look so freaking amazing!
