Central Machinery, Marvel and General International are all brands that manufacture metal-cutting band saws. Metal-cutting band saws typically offer a range of blade speeds, allowing users to adjust cutting speeds depending on the materials being cut.
Metal-cutting band saws are commonly adjustable between horizontal and vertical positions. Major tool sellers, such as Sears and Harbor Freight Tools, sell metal-cutting band saws, and they are also often available on auction websites, such as eBay. Saws are typically sold with a heavy-duty stand, but portable versions are also available. Portable models normally have a smaller size and cutting capacity, and they are typically used for smaller jobs.
