Yes, it can cut curves and irregular lines, but that is fair the beginning. Band saws can be used to cut thick resources, re-saw wood, create compound cuts such as those used for creating cabriolet legs. Reproduce or create duplicate parts with a high degree of accuracy, cut a diversity of joins including unites and mortise and tenons. Cut circles, square notches, create angled cuts, and of course they can cut any type of a linear streak – both with a fence and freehand.
The band saw gets its name because the blade that cuts the inventory is a slim steel strip where the ends have been welded together to form a continuous band. It is usually not the first machine purchased by the home woodworker, but it can be one of the most useful machines in the store. Band saws are to create boards square and they can be wonderful instruments to help cut rough lumber to length and width before beginning the milling process.
They are sold in a diversity of magnitudes. I have heard over the years that the magnitude of a band saw is determined by the wheel diameter or the distance from the blade to the throat. This measurement is the limiting factor on how wide wood can be cut to the left of the blade. Most home-store band saws are 10″ to 14″ in magnitude. However, this measurement or magnitude limitation is only one part of the equation. The other deliberation when determining the magnitude of a band saw is the depth of cut it can create.
