  • Ridgid 14" Band Saw

    Does anyone know if I can use this band saw to cut small amounts of 1/4" structural tubing?

    Thanks

    At 2700 SFPM I wouldn't recommend it but thats not to say you couldn't. I'd also be concerned about what the metal shavings might do to the wheels.

      Dave is correct . The speed is too high to cut any metals. Plus if there's any sawdust in the machine and a hot metal chip hits it, you'll have a instant fire on your hands. Use the right tool for the job, always, or accidents WILL happen.
