6. With the use of a fence, it is easy to make straight cuts or repetitive cuts of the same length with a bandsaw. 7. You can switch to a metal cutting blade with a bandsaw and slow the bandspeed down to about 2-300 FPM(feet per minute). This can be done by changing the pullies and adding another reduction. 8. There is less waste of wood with a bandsaw because you have a very narrow nerf cut. The wider saw blade of a circular saw would eat up much more wood than the narrow nerf of a bandsaw.
Basement workshop - Having a woodworking shop in the basement is nice and allows for a more permanent setup of the shop tools. A basement shop does present some interesting challenges. Most basements have a low ceiling height. The typical basement ceiling height is seven feet. This makes lighting a challenge since hanging lights from the joists leads to potential head banging and being struck when moving material around the woodshop.
The type of tool and the tools working area will help determine how much light is needed. Table saws need to have at least their table top well illuminated. The out feed table needs some light but not as much. For a table saw a four foot fluorescent tube light over the table saw table will provide plenty of light.
