A bandsaw (Band saw) is a power tool which uses a blade consisting of a continuous band of metal with teeth along one edge to cut various workpieces.

The band usually rides on two wheels rotating in the same plane, although some small bandsaws have three wheels.___

The saw may be powered by wind, water, steam, electrical motor or animal power.

Bandsawing produces uniform cutting action as a result of an evenly distributed tooth load.___

Bandsaws are used for woodworking, metalworking, or for cutting a variety of other materials, and are particularly useful for cutting irregular or curved shapes, but can also be used to produce straight cuts.___

The radius of a curve that can be cut on a particular saw is determined by the width of the band and its lateral flexibility.___
