Q: What is measured that gives a 14' bandsaw that designation?
John Brock: This is the throat distance, or the length of the longest piece that can be cut off.
Richard Jones: Blade to frame distance.
Michael Dresdner: The above is true, but be aware that the number may be rounded off. For example, the throat on my 20"-bandsaw is about a 1/4" shy of 20'.
