Frequently Asked Questions

What are bandsaws used for?

A bandsaw (or band saw) is a powered saw with a long, sharp blade with a toothed edge between two or more wheels – used for woodworking, lumber cutting and metalworking. A band saw is essential to complete everything from straight cuts to crosscuts and freehand cuts. It helps you to cut the wood down to an accurate size and can also be used to create intricate shapes. Band saws have been used to rip (cut) lumber for centuries. They feature a large table size and excellent cutting capacity that enables you to cut bigger pieces of lumber with ease, which can then be used as fence pieces. When it comes to cutting metal, band saws are perfect. The sharp-toothed edge of the blade allows you to accurately cut the metal. And the best part is, you can change the bandsaw blade to create a different shape in the metal. For more information about bandsaws and their uses, get in touch with the Kendal Tools team today.

Are bandsaws expensive?

Bandsaws combine the stability and durability of a table saw with the versatile shaping of a jigsaw, and can be used to cut through metal and wood. But there’s no denying that they are a significant investment, so you need to make sure that you choose the right one for you. We suggest that you carefully compare the build quality and safety features of the band saw, along with any specific features and the cost, to identify the best one for your needs. Here at Kendal Tools, we pride ourselves on competitive, yet affordable, prices and are confident that you won’t find the same quality band saw for less elsewhere. What’s more, our team has detailed knowledge in this area and will gladly advise on the best bandsaw for both your application and budget. Feel free to call 01539 733 774 for more information.

What size bandsaw do I need?

Good question! The band saws for sale, here at Kendal Tools, are available in all sizes, ranging from 8 to 18-inches. In most cases, a 12 or 14-inch band saw is more than big enough for woodworkers who would use the machine as a hobby, as it will provide sufficient power in a smaller footprint. This size bandsaw is also ideal if you require curved cutting – but not in a heavy-duty capacity. If you’re going to be using your bandsaw continually for thicker pieces of wood or metal, then it’s worth opting for a larger 18-inch band saw. This band saw size is much more powerful and has a bigger motor – making it perfect for rugged cutting applications. Although an 18-inch band saw is typically used for commercial applications, that’s not to say it won’t benefit a woodworker that produces high-grade wood/metal pieces regularly.
