will it cut wood also?

Will it cut wood as well as metal?
Asked by: Kirk
This band saw has a maximum blade speed of 180 feet per minute. That is probably not near fast enough for wood cutting which is usually well over 1000+ feet per minute.

Does it come with a removable table for vertical cutting? if not, is one available as an accessory?

states it comes with a stand, but that is not what I'm inquiring about.
Asked by: Ricky
Yes it comes with a removable table. You can easily switch from horizontal to vertical cutting in a few minutes.

5 Amp 4.5 in. Stationary Metal Cutting Band Saw with Stand is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good quality or construction. The first saw I got had the main input shaft bent on it and wh... Not good quality or construction. The first saw I got had the main input shaft bent on it and when you turned the saw on it shook itself violently, so Returned it and reordered a new one. The replacement one arrived and it runs pretty smooth, it shakes a small amount but I am ok with that. But it does not cut square, it is adjustable left and right to get it square but it is off up and down and has no way of adjusting itself, so it will always cut slightly off square. Also when I put it together I noticed that there is about 1/4" of play in the sliding material clamp, normally not a big issue but the problem is that when you clamp materiel in prior to cutting it it lifts it about a 1/8" up off of the saw. Originally I thought that this was the reason why it was cutting off. So i took it apart and re-milled the metal piece that was causing the issue so the lifting issue is fixed but it still cuts off of true square. Next time I have to order something I will go elsewhere and get a higher quality machine. Bottom line, price was not bad, quality is very poor and the machines function is passable. You get what you pay for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from General International Band Saw Assembly is relatively. The saw head is a beast so you really should have 2 people to mount it on the base. Makes nice cuts.
