Collection: Bandsaws

With such a wide variety of bandsaws on the market, how do you choose the best machine for your needs? A bandsaw is a versatile machine but each user has their own set of requirements that will make one machine more suitable than another. For example a furniture maker requiring a machine to cut accurate veneers, tenons or to resaw will be better served by a machine that can take a wide blade, has a deep solid fence and a powerful motor. However for the woodturner wishing mainly to cut bowl blanks, of greater importance will be the ability to fit and track narrow blades for radius work. Also, a good sized table with enough support for the bowl blank to the right of the blade and good blade guides to counter side pressure when cutting is more important. Make sure the strengths of the bandsaw model match your main application requirements.
