The Jimmy Diresta 48” Band Saw Restoration: Disassembly

Published 1 month ago

The Diresta Band Saw Project! A couple of months ago, I posted some photos of a huge J. A. Fay 48” band saw on Instagram and Facebook that a guy was trying to find a new home for about an hour from me. Lots of folks were interested in it but at the end of the day, my friend Jimmy Diresta ended up making a deal on this machine. A few weeks ago, with the help of another friend, Andy Knowlton, we retrieved this saw and got it moved to my shop. After talking things over with Jimmy, we decided that I would take this project on as a restoration video series on my VintageMachinery.org YouTube site. This past week and weekend, I started the process of disassembled the saw into its various pieces. Looking forward to this restoration - it is always a pleasure to get to work on machines that date from the 1800’s. This one is going to be fun!
