Horizontal position for precise cutting and automatic shutoff
Vertical position for freehand cutting
3 blade speeds
4" x 6" capacity
This 4" x 6" capacity horizontal / vertical band saw has automatic shutoff at the end of the cut when in the horizontal position. The saw is floor standing on the included stand.
The vertical position allows for freehand cutting of large, thin work pieces.
In the horizontal position the vise can be set from 90 to 45 degrees for angle cuts. The saw has adjustable down pressure and automatic shutoff for unattended operation. There is a work stop for repetitive cuts at the same dimension.
The saw comes equipped with a 14 TPI blade.
Chris' Tips Our 4x6 band saw has three speeds. Use low speed for high strength steel, stainless steel, and other harder materials. Use the medium steel for mild steel including structrual shapes. Use high speed for aluminum and other non-ferrous metals. High speed works well for wood and plastic, too.structural Learn about Selecting and Using Band Saw Blades.I found a great rule of thumb in Cutting Tool Engineering for selecting the correct band saw blade. It's the rule of 3, 6, 12, 24. You want at least three teeth on the work all the time, you don't want more than 24 teeth on the work at any one time, and what you would like is between 6 and 12 teeth on the work all the time.
