Your Craftsman Band Saw / Sander is no _ only capable of the usual band saw operations , out it can he converted into a sander as well . You can finish wood , certain compositions and plastics and non - ferrous metals . It is also used for stra ght - line cutting operations such as crosscutting , ripping , mitering , beveling , compound cutting , and resawing . SAWING WARNING : ADJUST THE UPPER GUIDES TO CLEAR 2 . The smallest diameter that can be cut out is determined THE WORKPIECE . by the width of the blade . For example , a 1 / 4 " wide blade will cut a minimum diameter of approximately 1 - 1 / 2 " .
