Variable Speed Mini Band Saw
Variable Speed Band Saw Cuts Intricate Shapes in Metal, Plastic, Wood, Stone, Tile, Glass and More!
Band saws designed for cutting wood run too fast to cut metal, and plastic comes away as a gooey mess. The electronic speed control on our professional quality band saw lets you dial-in the exact speed you need to cut these materials. Make designs you never dreamed possible. Cutting metal is so smooth and fast you'll complete your work in just 1/10th the time of other methods. (Cooling Set #82211 is recommended when repeatedly cutting metals.) You can even stack workpieces to make exact duplicates in one pass. And, with the optional diamond blade and cooling system sold separately, you can easily cut intricate designs in glass, tile and other hard materials.

The bandsaw is a good tool to use for many types of materials. We cut steel ( 1/4 thick )brass and thick wood with ease. The coolant system we purchased helped a lot to cut the hard materials.
<br>We use this bandsaw to cut 1/8 304 stainless plate stock. It preforms the job well, slow but well. Our business required a good reliable saw and this one works good.
<br>Our only issue , the coolant tends to drip down from the sides of the saw, and spray out, you need a cover as not to have a little mess on the floor.
<br>The cost could be a bit less expensive, but otherwise its a good power tool for hobby work.
Still to fast for metal
ehh its ok i guess....like some others have said the blade still runs too fast (450 ft min) and needs to run slower (250ft min) for metal. because it runs too fast my blades are getting too hot and failing prematurely. Considering the cooling kit when I purchase another batch of blades (.138 24tpi) I make flatware jewelry using mostly plate and some sterling.....the dull blades work quite well on the sterling because it is nice and soft. Most of the silver plate stuff is copper, brass core. I do not work with steel but the blades wear out as if I did lol
