Renovating your home can be a bit of a drag especially if you don’t have the necessary tools to do some of the heavy-duty jobs. You’ve already drawn makeover inspirations from What Emily Does, applied your personal touch to the design, and began your do-it-yourself project, only to find out you’re missing crucial elements. You may have a toolbox complete with all the essentials, but if you don’t have the right equipment that’s willing and able to do the dirty work, you may end up with more repairs and refurbishing than expected. Here’s where power tools such as bandsaws come into play.
Speed and precision are the main selling points of bandsaws. According to UK’s largest multi-channel trade tools retailer, Screwfix, this power tool is an important piece of equipment to have, particularly, for accurately cutting an array of materials. There are three variations of bandsaws: bench-top, stand-mounted, and floor standing. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, but for home renovation’s (and simplicity’s) sake, bench-top bandsaws are the way to go.
Say you’re planning to redecorate your sunroom. Having a bench-top bandsaw allows you to easily carve wood thanks to its light-scrolling cutter. In addition, this power tool can cut through stationary objects with the precision of a talented surgeon. When it comes to price and portability, bench-tops are relatively cheaper and simpler to maneuver. On the other hand, it’s also smaller, compared to a stand-mounted and a floor standing bandsaw, thus making it easier for moving around the project area and storing inside your toolshed or garage.
In terms of precaution, bandsaws are generally safer than circular saws, as you can effortlessly stop the process of cutting in the middle without ever damaging the material. Also, there are not as many teeth exposed during high-speed cutting procedures. If you prefer a more in-depth discussion on ‘How to be Safe Around a Bandsaw,’ Street Articles enumerates the safety rules of it. These are just a couple of bandsaw features that make it an ideal piece of equipment to have in your home workshop. So if you’ve already done enough research on the pros and cons of having one, then you’re all set to take your home renovation aspirations to the next level.
