In this video, Mark Donovan of
HomeAdditionPlus.com explains the applications and benefits of portable
band saws. In addition he provides useful tips on how to properly use and
maintain a portable band saw.
Portable band saws are ideal
for cutting hard surfaces such as metal and steel. They can also reach
locations that corded band saws frequently can not.
The Masterforce 18V Lithium-Ion
portable band saw demonstrated in this video (Model No. 241-0440) is
extremely compact and lightweight, weighing in at only 7 lbs 11 oz.

As a result, it is ideal for cutting hard surfaces in difficult to reach places. It also has a 2-1/2" exposed blade and rotates at 550 feet
per minute (FPM) under no load conditions. In addition, it has a large side grip
handle to provide complete control when making cuts. Consequently, with its 18V
battery, it has all the features and power to handle most band saw cutting jobs.
I've used the Masterforce
Portable band saw in a variety of applications, and on different materials, and
found I was able to easily control it, and make extremely fast and smooth cuts.
As with all power tools, it is
important to read the user manual first and in particular understand the safety
precautions. When using a portable band saw it is important to appreciate the
fact that the blade is fully exposed on the back of the band saw, and if not
used properly it could easily injure someone.
As when using any type of power tool,
always wear eye protection, and when necessary also wear hearing protection and
a dust mask. In addition, always remove the battery prior to installing or
changing the band saw blade.
So if you have some metal pipe
cutting projects, and/or are in the market for a portable band saw, take a look at
the Masterforce 241-0440 Portable Band Saw. It offers all of the features and
power most DIY homeowners would ever need at an affordable price.
