You can address different projects by operating the blades at two different speeds of 1520 and 2620 feet per minute. 9.75 inch throat and resaw capacity of 6 inches means it will deal with boards that are up to 6 inches thick comfortably and this is more than what other 10 inch band saws can usually tackle. Please bear in mind that this band saw should not be used for cutting ferrous metals, as specified on the user manual, doing so may damage the unit / blades. One of the customers commented that because of not setting it up correctly they had problems with the blades and they were not cutting things properly but after they learned how to set up a bandsaw correctly the unit has been working beautifully. It has very small design flaws, such as the location of the lighting (but has a flexible extension so you can move it a bit), plastic resistance knob not having markings as points of reference and you may need to be a little careful with it, but otherwise it is very good value for money in terms of power, functionality and durability but if you have a lot more money then you are better off with a high end and heavy duty band saw, this is more like a great quality beginner type machine that looks nice and works well.
