Adjust to the required speed for cutting through stainless-steel, strut and all thread with the variable-speed trigger and speed dial. Hang this band saw in between cuts with the integrated hang hook and illuminate the cutting area with the LED. This tool is LAYNARD READY™ compatible and Tool Connect™ Chip-Ready.
