    Which one will be better for parting/cutting metals?

    I need to build a machine to cut/part metals. Options are:

    1- Horizontal band saw machine
    2- Horizontal hacksaw machine

    I will cut all types of metals from aluminium to carbon metals. Up to 100mm height or diameter.

    Both will be motorized of course. I can't decide which one to build.

    What do you think?

    Without question, a bandsaw would be the choice. Power hacksaws have all but disappeared for a reason, they are SLOOOOOWWWWWWW.
