The endless saw blade running above the two band rolls separates through chip removal solid wood and sheet material. The small blade width makes possible curved cuts with various fret radii. Parallel, straight-line oblong or cross-cuts can be undertaken at the stop rule. This results in a rough cutting edge which requires further processing.
