Homemade band saw Answered

I am looking to see if anyone knows how to build a homemade band saw. I do not have a saw to start with so I was looking for a way to build one with a electric motor somehow. Would it be possible for someone to create a set of planes somehow for a beginner to put one together?

I would appreciate any help anyone can help me with.

Thank you D

Use a Hacksaw !

Then try to make a spring from a car wheel and a foot pedal to make a reciprocating saw that is very much like the straight part of a band saw..

Now you have a no motor band action saw..

The Romans used a springy wood for the top part.
