Bandsaws

Although a band saw is rarely the first stationary power tool a person will use it’s definitely one of the most versatile machines in the workshop. Just like a lathe or pedestal drill for instance, it’s a specialist professional tool, unlike a fretsaw, which is designed for thin, delicate decorative cutting or model making, bandsaws can be used on thicker material, making them ideal for wood working workshops.
Choosing which bandsaw best fits your requirements can be a little complicated as the materials you're cutting dictate which type of bandsaw you require. For example, you could be cutting metal or wood and both require specialist bandsaws. If you plan to cut thick ferrous and non-ferrous metals for instance, then one of our heavy duty metal cutting horizontal bandsaws, are what your require. For smaller metal bars or metal sheets, you’ll need one of our vertical and horizontal metal cutting bandsaws. But the main reason for choosing a bandsaw is for cutting wood. Bandsaws are one of the most useful pieces of equipment for any woodworking workshop so it’s imperative that you spend some time researching just which bandsaw fits your requirements. They are capable of a variety of different cuts including ripping, cross-cutting and performing wafer thin veneer cuts, proving just how versatile bandsaws are. To achieve the cutting variety all the user has to do is fit the relevant bandsaw blade. There are lots to choose from but basically the less teeth per inch (TPI) the courser the cut and conversely the more TPI the finer the cut. For instance, if you want to perform a cross cut then a low TPI blade is required and if you wish to cut metal a high TPI bandsaw blade is needed. All Draper band saws from the smallest hobby machines to the largest industrial saws are fitted with highly engineered motors with various power ratings. All these motors are fitted with an electro-mechanical braking system. The work tables are securely mounted and fitted with tilting mechanisms. Attached to the table is a precision manufactured guide fence. This ensures that work can be set out true, and square to the table and blade, helping achieve accurate, straight cutting, perfect for furniture manufacture or when the production of a precise tenon is required to snuggly fit into its mortice.
