We hope the knowledge we've gathered here will help any level of user be successful in a workshop. Even if you are not an Instructables member, free PDF downloads of all our machine manuals are available here.
The horizontal bandsaw is a stationary power saw with a long thin blade in the form of a continuous loop. Unlike the vertical bandsaw, you operate the horizontal bandsaw by moving the blade through material that is held stationary. Therefore the horizontal bandsaw is useful for making precise straight cuts, not curved cuts or complex shapes.
This class is part of a greater course series covering Metal Shop safety and basic use. In this course series you will learn how to operate and adjust machines to safely begin basic metal projects.Check out the rest of the Metal Shop classes:
