"I love that saw so much. It just makes everything in the shop so much easier"

- Don Sumnicht

"Makes my life so much easier. You make a miter cut and put the joints together and it's a 90! You have one happy customer, I can tell you that."

- Paul Leschn

Why should you spend more money for our Italian designed and built Kama Bandsaw than an asian one you can get for a few hundred dollars less? Three reasons:

  1. You get accuracy that no other bandsaw in the world comes close to. In fact, a KAMA Bandsaw gives you accuracy rivaling a coldsaw, for about half the money and a lot bigger capacity.
  2. Ease of use. The head of our bandsaw pivots to miter, not the vise. You save valuable shop space by setting up your machine against a wall instead of in the middle of the shop floor. No other machine gives you this much cutting capacity in this small a package.
  3. The machines are built to take constant, heavy, day in and day out use for years.

Listed below are photos and examples of what we mean by each of these three reasons. An investment in a KAMA Bandsaw is not an expense, it is a proven money maker that will deliver years of profitable use. In fact, if you think about it, as a percentage of the value of the products you will make, over the life of our saw, the cost of a KAMA Bandsaw is so small, you can't even measure it. Does it really make sense to "save" a few hundred dollars on an asian machine, and go through the hassles of inaccurate cutting, time consuming set up for mitering and running around looking for parts in a year or two?
