|The band saw is an all around tool. The band saw can be used to cut
many different types of cuts that include: curved, irregular,
beveled, and straight cuts.
This web page describes the proper way to cut a curved or irregular cut.
Controls: The controls on the Vertical Band Saw in the materials processing laboratory consist of the following:
|Stock is being pushed into the blade. Note the position of the hands and the blade guards height above the stock.||Again note the position of the hands, they are a safe distance away from the blade. Only turn the stock while moving forward.|
Potential hazards: Because the blade on
the band saw is one continuous blade and for the speed that it goes the
follow hazards exist.
