I finally got around to doing this little project to mod the bandsaw I bought about 2 years ago.
The cover is held shut by 2 M6 set screws with hex heads and is a right pain in the ass when you need to change the blade or open the cover to clean the inside and you just cant lay your hand on the right spanner.
I used longer M6 set screws (100mm M6 roofing bolts) and turned some hard wood nobs for them so they can be tightened by hand.
As a bonus the new knobs are useful for winding the power cord around when the bandsaw is not in use.
Thanks for looking and I hope the idea inspires.
