Thank goodness this wasn’t a live one!

Cutting the bomb

This was a test cut using a metal cutting horizontal bandsaw and a carbide tipped bandsaw blade for a customer sawing concrete filled test bomb casing. Of course, we’re never told why. In this case, cutting concrete, inclusive of aggregate etc., wouldn’t be a normal application for a carbide tipped blade, however, as we were sawing a steel case at the same time, an abrasive blade was unlikely to survive.

We believe this was after being dug up some considerable time after the “drop” from a testing site.

Band saw machines are very versatile, and we can tackle most jobs successfully across our wide range of bandsaw machines and the right choice of band saw blades.
