1. There are many types of bands for many types of cuts. From 1/8 inch to 1 inch, teeth from 20 TPI (teeth per inch) to 1 TPI depending on the type of material you are using gives you many options for the type of work you will do. 2. You can use a very thin blade to make decorative scroll such as different types of figurines, toy animals or small figurines. Without a bandsaw, it isnt impossible but makes it very difficult to do with just a table saw.
So I thought, I wonder if I could make myself a bandsaw out of these things that I had. I wondered what I would use to power it. I had a 3 phase motor of about 3hp, so I thought I could use that motor and convert it to single-phase to power a saw. So I got all this stuff together and decided that other than the band, I believe I have everything I need to build one. For the band I looked at Sears, and saw that 93 1/2 inches was a standard band, so that way I could figure out the dimensions of the frame to mount the wheels.
