Horizontal/Vertical[edit]

I think perhaps a clear section needs writing on the types and various topologies of band saws as the current article has mixed comments on both. Confusing fixed vertical blade saws such as those photographed and typically used for woodworking and sheet applications with horizontal falling saws typically used for metal working and cutting section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.170.138.139 (talk) 16:25, 12 June 2010 (UTC)


Metal band saws[edit]

this article needs a section on metal bandsaws. Does anyone have any good pictures?--Duk 17:55, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

"Ribbon saw"?[edit]

Is a 'ribbon saw' the same thing as a 'pine saw'? I ask because Ribbon saw is a redlink at the Robert William Thomson article. --Mais oui! 10:18, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

I gather it is, although I've never heard the term used. I Googled "Ribbon saw" and the images that it threw up look like bandsaws to me. Perhaps it is an Anglicised version of the French term for the bandsaw or something? It seems to appear a lot on French and Italian sites. SilentC 21:37, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. I had it come up as a translation of the German for 'band saw'. I will just redirect Ribbon saw to Band saw, and if we are wrong I am sure someone will create the correct article at some point. --Mais oui! 22:11, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
When used to refer to a band saw, 'ribbon saw' is actually a shortened version of 'continuous ribbon saw' or 'endless ribbon saw'--just as 'band saw' was a shortening of 'continuous band saw' or 'endless band saw'. Ribbon saw originally referred to either a bow saw or the very similar 'frame saw', and some people recycle broken band saw blades by setting a section into a bow saw or 'frame saw'. There is currently no page for 'frame saw' and bow saw needs substantial improvement. I don't think I'm quite the expert to tackle those pages. Destijl78 (talk) 03:10, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Aditional information needed ![edit]

How to coil / fold a blade and How to weld the blade into a loop, typicaly blades are supplyed in bulk lengths that need to be cut to suit and then welded92.8.49.120 (talk) 21:19, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a place for "how-to" information. Please see WP:NOTHOWTO. Wizard191 (talk) 21:37, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Anyone that has folded a bandsaw blade would disagree, as would anyone anyone that can weld them, folding and welding are vital parts of bandsaw blade info as to the merhods used. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.8.49.120 (talk) 21:53, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Need to add: How the size of the saw is determined. Example: Many bandsaws are listed in size 10", 14", 16", etc. What is meant by this sizing? Is it the height of the shank where the blade rests or is it the size of the wood (in a wood band saw) which can be processed.
