Band saws are a type of circular saw used to cut out shapes from a wide variety of materials. They can be used for cutting metal, wood, plastics, and other materials. A band saw blades are generally made out of either bi-metal or steel because they must withstand the heat generated by friction when the blade is in contact with the material being cut. Blades come in many different sizes and thicknesses depending on their intended use; for example, thick blades are often used when cutting hardwoods while thin blades might be necessary when cutting aluminum sheeting. The teeth along each side of the blade can either be set at an angle (called “beveled”) so that they produce angled cuts or parallel to one another so that they produce straight cuts.

About the product
The Klutch Benchtop Metal Cutting Band Saw is a small, portable band saw that can cut through large pieces of metal up to 5 inches in diameter. The blades spin at a variety of speeds between 125 and 260 feet per minute, allowing the user to choose the appropriate speed for cutting different types of materials. It also comes equipped with a beveling blade that can be adjusted from 0-60 degrees, allowing it to make angled cuts as well as straight ones. It has a standard 4-inch by 4-7/8-inch throat capacity, so it will have no problem cutting most objects you might have.
It is a relatively small unit, measuring 28-1/2 inches long by 25.20 inches wide and 27.56 inches high, so it’s very easy to maneuver around the shop or garage. In fact, this 14-pound saw can be carried from room to room without much effort at all.
It is a fairly well-built machine, although it probably won’t survive being dropped repeatedly from a ten-foot height. Despite its stiff frame and hefty motor, the Klutch Band Saw does show some signs of wobbling during operation, even when clamped to a workbench or sawhorses. While this might not have any impact on its cutting ability, it certainly speaks well for durability.
It’s powered by a 400-watt motor that spins the blade at speeds between 125 and 260 feet per minute.
Klutch Benchtop Metal Cutting Band Saw is a must-have for anyone who works with metal on an infrequent basis. Its small footprint makes it ideal for someone who has to work in confined spaces, while its variable speed design allows the user to change cutting speeds depending on the material being cut.
