I have toyed with the idea of buying a band saw, but I don’t know what I could do with it that I don’t already do with my table saw and sliding compound miter saw. Should I buy one?
Mark Hensley: Try cutting an arc or circle on the table saw.
Carol Reed: Check out a book on band saws out from your local library and feast your eyes on the possibilities.
Richard Jones: If you need to cut irregular shapes, curves and circles, they’re a boon. Resawing or deep ripping of wide planks is a relatively safer operation with a band saw than on a table saw
