We sell a range timber cutting band saws from the small DIY / craft band saw up to professional 14" and 16 " heavy duty band saws. The size given on a a band saw is not the height of the cut but the size of the wheel that the blade travels on. The cut depth will be slightly smaller than this as the rear of the bandsaw blade needs to be protected in the rear support column. On larger powerful band saw the size and rigidity of this rear support column is crucial to a stability and trueness of the machine. For re-sawing large timber blocks into veneers or planks choose the 3 hp 16" model. For cutting and shaping the likes of hurleys either of the 14" or 16" will be suitable.
For crafts or smaller or intricate work either of the two smaller band saws that we have for sale will do.
