Best Band Saws Buying Guide
The band saw is a cutting tool that can be pedal or electric, has a serrated metal band, narrow, long and flexible. This is a band that slides on two wheels which are in the same vertical plane with a space between them. That is what makes it possible for this machine to carve, create curvilinear material, trim and make any cross-section you need.
Generally, they are used in carpentry work and any work that requires an irregular cut. This is possible because it is composed of a gooseneck-shaped frame. On which a saw blade that is known as the tape is interned. The parts that make up a band saw are:
Tape: It is a fundamental piece that is what makes the cut. It is a blade with teeth at its sides, ensuring that the movement of the saw is carried out in the correct way.
Motor: As with any machine, this is responsible for the movement of the main parts of the saw.
Flyers: They can be vertical or horizontal are balanced in the same plane on which the saw will perform the movement. It is driven by the engine. The secondary steering wheel is dragged by the band saw blade.
Hydraulic Pumps: It is the part of the saw in charge of supplying forces to the machine for the correct functioning of the presses and the cutting head.
Cooling pumps: In case of heating or the machine requires lubricant, the cooling pump is located. It is an area responsible for supplying the coolant.
Presses: In order to be able to carry out the cutting of the material it is necessary that the necessary pressure is applied, so there are presses.
Depth: This is essential because it will define the type of material with which you will work, a basic band saw cuts up to 15 cm thick, while a professional or industrial double the cutting width to 30 cm or so. It should be noted that the width is considered at the distance between the tape and the nearest vertical element.
Speed: Are the meters or feet that the belt travels in a minute, a good band saw must have varied speed options. To adapt the necessary cut to the material we want to carve and thus obtain more precise cuts.
Flywheels: These make it possible to rotate the tape, the cutting width cannot exceed the diameter of the flyers.
Table and blade guide: The material of the tables are usually made of aluminum, steel, iron or sheet, this should have grooves to improve the removal of sawdust and chips. They should be able to gradually tilt to 45 degrees to achieve bevels or miter.
Brake: For safety measures, switches and starting must be secured and automatic, so that the saw stops automatically when opening access to the steering wheels.
Sawtooth: These are expressed in inches, and the thicker the piece, the increased number of teeth it will have.
Cutting capacity: Refers to the amount of material that the saw can cut in a single pass, usually 6 to 36 inches, this is determined by the size of the saw you have.
