What is a bandsaw?

A simple definition is that it’s a saw with a long blade that consists of a continuous band of metal with saw teeth, stretched between two or more wheels. 

While the blade is continuously moving, only a small part of it is exposed in the cutting area. The blade circulates around the flywheels within the bow of the saw. It then descends through the workpiece towards the table of the saw. The work piece is moved into a heavy-duty vice and secured. This is where the saw creates the cuts. The narrow size of the blade allows for detailed, intricate cuts.
