Sometimes we get asked about using a KAMA vs a cold saw. Put simply, if you are making the same cut all the time and are choosing your exact blade for the material, a cold saw will likely work fine for you. However, if you are making a wide variety of cuts and do not have time to change the blades as often, you will find that KAMA is the better option.

Metal Supermarkets has been a bandsaw customer for many years and nearly all 86 of their locations have at least one model AD 105S, while Metal Supermarkets in Knoxville, has an EV 996.  These saws get used constantly, day in and day out, making hundreds and hundreds of cuts every year. This is a testament to KAMA products and an affirmation of longevity and quality in our products. KAMA bandsaws pay for themselves quickly if you typically have to spend a lot of time grinding to clean edges on your pieces. Metal Supermarkets is the world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals with thousands of metal types, shapes, and grades so using an accurate machine is vital to production.

The AD 105S is one of our portable benchtop saws capable of cutting up to 4” round or square at 90 degrees. This saw is designed for square cuts and accurate mitering. The EV 996 is a pulldown bandsaw that miters to 60 degrees right with positive stops. This saw provides accuracy that no other bandsaw in the world offers, rivaling a cold saw, for around half the price. It has a much larger capacity and is extremely easy to use with a pivoting head for mitering. You will also save space, being able to put your machine against the wall and not in the middle of the floor.

Sometimes, the right tools can cost a bit more money. But, when you consider the quality and the quantity of work you need to accomplish, buying your machines once is the money-saving option. Don’t settle for less when choosing the tools for your job.

OVERBUILT – this is the appropriate word you have to pick to describe all of our horizontal pull-down and powered Kama bandsaw. We don’t cut corners on material thicknesses. We use what is needed, so there is no bend or flex in the machine. Our machines don’t cut corners by using bushings. Instead, we use bearings for perfection. Rather than using plastic gears to cut corners, we use hardened, ground steel gears. We don’t cut corners by not keeping parts in stock.


When we design our saws, we don’t aim for a specific cutting capacity within a certain price range. But our target is to develop a saw with a particular cutting capacity with the best-built quality that lasts year after year, hassle-free for industrial use.

There are smart people out there who understand that if they need to buy something, buy the best. So, they only buy it once and be relaxed for the coming years. Are you one of them? If so, you are our customer.

KAMA constantly have been getting feedback from their customer for the last 2 decades. We are not those companies out there who need to change their design and functionality based on customer complaints within a few years. Suppose you have a machine of other bands that is 10 years old and 3 models ago, chances are high that you will not get spare parts and the machine will be completely unusable. On the flip side, we design bandsaw that completely fit with customer’s requirement and performs the same years after years. We don’t build a saw within a price point. Instead, we make saws that can cut straight for years.

All of our saws are designed futuristically so that they will work the same for a long period while the other brands on the market need to make changes to their design and functionality to satisfy their client base.

For example, the most popular model AD105S of KAMA bandsaw need not to change a single part since 1999. Also, the EV88, EV90, and EV91 are unchanged since 2004 and 2005. The only exception is EV996. Only 3 parts have changed since 1996. 2 out 3 parts were changed to increase the mitering angle from 45 degrees to 60 degrees. The remaining 158 parts of that machine have not changed since 1996 and all of them are in stock.

We are KAMA Bandsaw –  we have spent 24 years building our reputation through thick and thin, and we support you after the sale, year after year.
