Wood is a great material to work with. It has a beautiful, often chic look and is very easy to edit. There are different types of wood, ranging from softwood to hardwood. Different woods require different saw types, so it is important to carefully choose the right band saw.
Custombandsaws.com has the right type of band saw for every type of wood.
Wood is a widely used material and there are numerous bandsaws suitable for wood, but when do you choose the right bandsaw for your wood project?
When sawing wood, you naturally want the wood to have a neat finish. The cut should be very precise without too many splinters. It is also important to consider the type of wood. A rule of thumb that can be remembered is; a bandsaw with lots of blades (a fine bandsaw) allows you to cut more accurately, but on the other hand you will cut more slowly. When you use a fine bandsaw for hardwood, you may end up with burn marks or smoke. But when you use a coarse bandsaw for softwood, you may get a less smooth result with more splinters.
At Custom Band Saws, we make bandsaws to size. We make sure that your bandsaw has the right blades and thickness, so you can make the best cuts for the most beautiful wood projects!
At Custom Band Saws we have bandsaws suitable for both hard- and softwood. The Ripper37 is a bandsaw with a coarse tooth profile (tooth hardness of 60 HRC). Specially designed for the woodworking industry, the Ripper37 is very suitable for cutting boards from trees, for scaling and for resawing. In addition, the bandsaw is equipped with a hardpoint which gives it a higher tool life (the length of time until it needs to be replaced).
The carbon bandsaw (SAW37C) is a bandsaw with carbon content. This ensures that the bandsaw is wear-resistant, making it long-lasting. The carbon steel and it’s flexible back allow the saw to absorb blows while cutting.
The saw is available in varying blade types; from coarse to fine. In addition, the bandsaw is also available in different thicknesses.
A coarse bandsaw is more suitable for hard woods. For example, for cutting oak, beech, ash and chestnut wood. The Hardpoint bandsaw is very suitable for hardwood.
A fine bandsaw is more suitable for soft types of wood. For example, when cutting construction timber and beam timber. This will ensure a smoother result with less damage and splinters. The Chrome Steel bandsaw is very suitable for soft types of wood.
