The horizontal band saw has quickly created its own niche in the larger spectrum of metalworking. This machine is different from the normal band saw because of the position of the blade. The horizontal position gives the blade the ability to be lowered onto the material that needs to be cut. Many people may choose a specialty chop saw to cut metal, but the horizontal band saw can cut metal without the "shower of sparks" produced by other types of saws, resulting in a safer and cleaner working environment. Horizontal Band Saws are just one of the many categories of Metalworking Machinery offered at Tools-Plus.com.
