A band saw is a type of power saw used for cutting. It features a long and sharp blade that has a continuous line of toothed metallic parts between two or more wheels. It is mainly applied in woodworks, lumbering, metal works, and plastics. The toothed band of metal is evenly distributed to enable a uniform cutting action or irregular jigsaw-like curved shapes. Many modern band saws use an electric motor and have two wheels that rotate on the same plane, while others can have more wheels for further load distribution. The sharp blade comes in various sizes and tooth per inch (TPI) which affects the band saw’s versatility and application areas. The common tooth forms in band saws include precision blade, buttress blade and claw tooth blade. Residential and light industry workshops use small to medium-sized band saws. In the food industry, meat cutting band saws are made from stainless steel. Timber cutting band saws are huge, and they include head saws, double-cut saws and head saws.
