Band saws are power tools that can cut through a variety of materials, including wood, metal, and plastic. They are often table-mounted to provide accurate cuts with minimal effort.
The blade is usually circular in shape, but other shapes are possible for specific purposes. The material being cut is clamped at the desired height above the table by means of an adjustable horizontal arm called a fence. This keeps them from lifting off during cutting operation and also provides support against gravity’s downward force on the material being cut.
In this article, we’ll be reviewing Ryobi BS904G.
About the product
The Ryobi BS904G is a 9″ band saw that’s been refurbished and certified to look and work like new. Handles the everyday projects with ease and has less vibration than other models. This model is for the weekend DIYer, but it can get dusty really quickly, so make sure you take care of that right away.
The saw weighs 37.3 pounds and measures 31 x 18 x 11 inches, which makes it pretty heavy for a portable band saw. It has a 62″ blade length which is pretty standard for band saws. The band saw blades can be circular or square in shape, but this one uses circular ones only. FYI, double-sided blades are not recommended by the manufacturer for this machine, because they could cause severe damage to the shaft seals.
The saw is equipped with a built-in dust collection port, which reduces the mess caused by wood shavings and helps keep your shop clean. If you don’t like the feature of the dust collection, then you can remove it using a screwdriver. As for power, the Ryobi BS904G uses 120 volts to work properly. It does not have any special speed settings for different materials so it’s only suitable for cutting through wood and soft metals.
The Ryobi BS904G is recommended for daily use. It’s not suitable for industrial applications or heavy-duty jobs, but if you’re looking for a good band saw that won’t get in the way of your DIY projects, then this band saw could be the right choice for you.
The Ryobi BS904G is a decent band saw for small, everyday projects. However, you’ll need to take good care of it and since it doesn’t have any special features for different materials, we’d recommend that beginners look elsewhere. This model has been refurbished and certified by the manufacturer so it’s safe to use. It cuts through wood quickly and accurately but can also handle light-duty aluminum cutting as well as plastics if required. Overall, the simple machine is perfect for anyone looking for their first table-mounted band saw.
