6. With the use of a fence, it is easy to make straight cuts or repetitive cuts of the same length with a bandsaw. 7. You can switch to a metal cutting blade with a bandsaw and slow the bandspeed down to about 2-300 FPM(feet per minute). This can be done by changing the pullies and adding another reduction. 8. There is less waste of wood with a bandsaw because you have a very narrow nerf cut. The wider saw blade of a circular saw would eat up much more wood than the narrow nerf of a bandsaw.
3. You can cut very thick lumber with a bandsaw. The one I made will cut a depth of 12 inches, which is not possible to do with a table saw. 4. You can make resaw cuts on lumber with a bandsaw to make bookend type doors or plaques, as one side will be a mirror image to the other. You can also resaw lumber and make thin boards for such projects as miniatures. With my saw I was able to make small outhouse toilet paper holders, kleenex holders and other miniature outhouses for a friend that had outhouse decor in her spare bathroom.
