At its most simplistic definition, a band saw is a saw with a long blade that consists of a continuous band of metal with saw teeth, stretched between two or more wheels. The blade is more of a ribbon, as it is constantly rotating along the wheels, similar to a cassette tape. While the blade is continuously moving, only a small part of it is exposed in the cutting area. The blade comes up through the flat surface of the table, which is where the workpiece is moved into the saw to create cuts. The small size of the blade allows for detailed, intricate cuts.
A motor is used to power the saw, and most models contain some adjustments that let you expose more of the saw blade for bigger workpieces, adjust speeds, and allow for mitered and angled cutting depending on the saw’s table surface and features as well.
Having these capabilities allows CB Frost to offer diverse and unique solutions for their customer base.
