Bandsaw Blades

Bandsaw blades are, as their name suggests, literally a band of metal with saw teeth along one edge. Made from high tensile steel they are both flexible enough to run in a continuous loop whilst also being rigid enough to cut through a variety of materials. Wheels, or rollers, aligned on the same plane will usually rotate the band saw in a vertical direction, with the material to be cut being passed through the sawing blade, normally on a flat and horizontal platform. The mechanism for the movement of bandsaw blades today is typically an electric motor.
