Default Band Saw

We recently acquired this large bandsaw. Quite good shape so shouldn't take much to get it going but we will have to buy a blade for it. Would this saw have been used more for wood working or for metal

The deep depth of cut sure looks like it's for wood.

Nice find !!!
This one is for wood.
Set it up for a blade speed of about 3000 feet/minute.
Blades are readily available Online welded to any length.

Its also easy to make your own blades from bulk blade material. Grind the ends on a bevel to let them overlap about 1/4" and silver solder. That type of saw would only be for wood.
