Big Tool For A Little Job ~ The Band Saw

If you remember the last post, a ring box was cut apart. 
It was sitting on the table top of this band saw. This saw 
is 7 feet tall, and if you look closely, you’ll see that little 
ring box. That’s why I say a big tool for a little job.

The blade is one continuous small steel band. The blade 
for this saw is 111 inches long. That’s over 9 feet long. 
It rides on two wheels. One above the table and one below. 
They remotely resemble bicycle wheels and tires.

Once again, I appreciate you sharing this with your blog readers - thank you! <3 Wow, it's even bigger than I thought, lol.... May I ask how much it coated? :) It looks expensive.

Lola, you may ask, but I don't have to answer. It ain't cheap. The business is able to buy tools like this once in awhile. I have to sell a whole lot of these little boxes.

I enjoy your questions Lola. It helps me to decide what to post next.
