9. A bandsaw is safer than a circular saw as you can stop the saw in the material without damaging the material. There are not as many cutting teeth exposed at high speed with a bandsaw, thus making it less likely that you will be injured. 10. A bandsaw has a much easier cut or feed pressure than a table saw, and there is no danger of kickback with a bandsaw like there is with a circular saw. With a bandsaw, the material is pulled down toward the table holding it tight, where a circular saw will tend to let the wood rise up off of the table. You should use a push stick on both types of a saw. A circular saw holds the stock down, a bandsaw keeps your fingers away from the bands. Whether you have a homemade bandsaw or a commercial bandsaw is up to you. But these 10 suggestions in making a great cut should help. The biggest difference in a homemade bandsaw and a commercial one is mostly just the cost, but either way it is a great item to have if woodworking is your hobby.
10 Advantages To Having A Bandsaw In Your Shop - There are many advantages to having a shop that has a bandsaw in it, whether its a homemade bandsaw, which is what I have, or a commercial bandsaw. After I made my bandsaw with mostly things I had sitting around my shop, I was able to do several things that I could not do before without a bandsaw. I will share the top ten reasons I believe having a bandsaw has given me more opportunity in my woodworking hobby than I had before.
1. There are many types of bands for many types of cuts. From 1/8 inch to 1 inch, teeth from 20 TPI (teeth per inch) to 1 TPI depending on the type of material you are using gives you many options for the type of work you will do. 2. You can use a very thin blade to make decorative scroll such as different types of figurines, toy animals or small figurines. Without a bandsaw, it isnt impossible but makes it very difficult to do with just a table saw.
