bandsaw sizes .....
Bandsaws are named by their wheel diameters, 10", 14", and 18" for instance.
The wheel diameter determines the LENGTH of the STOCK that will fit between the blade and the frame laying flat on the table.
The cutting HEIGHT is the distance above the table surface to the upper blade guide when raised to it's maximum. It is also the RESAW capacity when the stock it placed vertically or on edge.
A 10" bandsaw will cut 10" lengths off a long board. It may be able to cut 5" thick boards into thinner slices like 1/4", or 1/2" thick and as long as the board is, or resawing.
A good size bandsaw for a home shop is a 14" model. They will typically have at least a 1 HP motor, but more is better for resawing which demands more power, like 1 1/2 HP or even 2 HP.
Blades come in different WIDTHS from 1/8" to 1" for home shop saws. The general rule is the smaller the wheel, like 10" the blade will be THINNER, like .025". A larger wheel will take a thicker blade like .032" or .035". Blade width and blade thickness are totally different.
Blade LENGTH is determined by the wheel diameter and how far apart they are located. When you cut a blade and lay it out flat on the floor next to a tape measure, that will show you it's length.
Some blades are 60 1/2" long for a 10" bandsaw, others 93.5 " long for a 14" bandsaw, and for a 18" bandsaw, 143" long.
So, you have wheel size or throat, resaw cutting capacity or height. Then there's blade width and blade length. The first two terms describe the machine itself, the next two describe the blade.
There YA GO!
