So I have a small personal project im trying to do, I have access to a portable corded band saw and torch for 2 cuts I need in some 3/4 plate. But at the same time I would like to get my own so im not dependent on someone else to do it, plus once I have these 2 thick pieces cut, I will need to make cuts in some 1/4 thick flat bar for the rest of the project. so my question is, will a bench top band saw be able to cut thru the 3/4 with the right blade? What should I be looking at when choosing one(bench or portable) I noticed that a lot of the portable can only do up to 6" cuts or at least that's what the opening is. I don't have room for a full size band saw now, but may be able to squeeze in a bench top or even a portable for sure..
