Band Saw

The band saw can be used to cut plastics, metals, and wood. The speed must be adjusted to go slower when cutting metals. The height of the saw can be adjusted up to 12" to accommodate larger materials. The band saw should not be used to cut cylinders, for safety implications. This machine is located in the BME Shop in the Whitaker Biomedical Engineering Building.
