Whether you are building a house or building a doll house or bird house a bandsaw may be able to be of assistance. Bandsaw can do some detail work and smaller cuts but for the most part bandsaws are used for large sweeping cuts that are unfinished and undetailed. Other power tools can help with detailing when the time comes. How Do I Setup A Bandsaw? Well depending on your bandsaw size it may attach securely to a workbench or table or the bandsaw may be on its own table. The larger and heavier the bandsaw the more likelihood that it will be on its own table. The bandsaw table should always be on a flat steady surface. You definitely do not want that table a wobbling while you are working. Your full attention should be on the bandsaw not whether it will fall over.

These qualities ensure that this butchery equipment is made to last a very long time. Safety is another factor that is at the forefront of the Butcherquip brand.

The best suggestion I could give is to always take extreme caution when using a bandsaw for any reason. Bandsaws come in both horizontal and vertical models with each type having its own set of precautions and safety issues. A few common precautions can be used by both. Never use a bandsaw while intoxicated or while you are not in the right frame of mind. A clear mind a clean bandsaw and a good instruction manual can go a long way in saving you and your family from an untimely death. No one will ever deny the fact that a bandsaw is an extremely important part of any home workshop. Bandsaws allow the novice and expert alike the opportunity to cut limber and wood in a fashion that the resulting pieces can combine to create furniture shelving tables or anything else that is useful around the home.
So my standard ripping blade is 3TPI Skip tooth. That means the teeth are the size they would be if it were 6TPI but every other one is missing. This means the gullets are easily able to carry away the sawdust and I get a smooth and clean cut. If we are crosscutting however or using much thinner material then 3TPI is simply too coarse to get a smooth cut. Here the sawdust is finer and we can get away with smaller gullets without them getting clogged up. 6 8 or 12 TPI may be more suitable. If cutting sheet metal like brass that TPI count may go up to 24. That would still give us 3 teeth in 1/8" material. I recommend that when buying a new blade buy two the same. There is nothing more frustrating than breaking a blade and having to stop whilst a replacement arrives in the post! So I suggest you start with a ½" 3TPI Skip blade for ripping and a ¼" 6TPI for crosscutting and curved work. That should get you through most of your tasks.
