I have a regular bandsaw that is old, old enough that I can change pulleys to reduce speed and modify it easily to be able to cut metal, what I need to know is the best speed in f/min that I need to have it running in order to cut metal easily. (5160, w1, o1 mostly, all annealed obviously) thanks for the help. also, do you use oil on the blade while cutting, or just cut slowly or both?
