What You'll Do with Your New Shopsmith Bandsaw

Although bandsaws were originally developed to make curved cuts, it didn't take long before users realized that it offered a number of great, straight-line cutting advantages, as well. For example, not many table saws (commercial or otherwise) will cut stock up to 6" thick, or cut metal. Here are a few of the jobs your Shopsmith bandsaw is well-suited to tackle:

Cut Tight Or Sweeping Curves - No home shop saw will cut faster than a bandsaw, and with Shopsmith's generous-sized support table and full range of 1/8" to 5/8" wide blades, you'll have just what you need to cut simple or intricate curves in wood plastic, and non-ferrous metals.

Make Compound Cuts to Create 3-D Objects - Curved table legs are often created by first cutting the required curves on the two opposing faces of a board - taping the scrap back into position - then rotating the board 90° and repeating the process.

Quickly Cut Woods Up To 6" Thick - Whether straight or curved, the bandsaw is your best choice for cutting thick woods other saws just can't handle.

Resaw Thin Boards From Thick Ones - Sometimes, you need wood that's thinner than the "standards" for special projects. Armed with a bandsaw and a 1/2" or 5/8" resawing blade, you can stand boards up to 6" wide on edge and slice thick boards into thinner ones, just like the lumberyards.

Pad-Saw Multiple Items Simultaneously - Need four identical bracket feet for a small clock or box? Use double-stick tape to create a stack of boards of identical thicknesses (up to 6" total) and saw them all at once, then separate.

Cut Metals, Plastics & Other Materials - When making straight or curved cuts in non-ferrous metals (up to 1/4" thick), plastics, rubber and other materials, no other home shop saw will out-perform the bandsaw.
