A band saw is my next planned purchase. My intended use will be primarily resawing. Coincidentily, my youngest son is into light metal fabrication and is already eyeballing the yet-to-be-purchased band saw. I don’t want to discourage the imagination of the youthful.
Aside from the blades and speeds, what other things should be considered when purchasing and/or using a band saw for these very different materials? Will one brand stand out over another considering this use? (Or phrased differently, do the product reviews for wood usage only pertain more or less?) Or is it truthfully a bad idea?
