It seems I'm often stuck looking for unique tools, for situations I come across in my business. Long story short, I've been trying to find a way to have a quiet and very portable, small metal band saw, that can also hold up to some pretty long running periods. Basically the size of the average portable band saw is fine. But I'm wondering if it would be possible to modify one and have it powered by a quiet AC induction motor. I've seen people modify portable band-saws into stand- up models, but I've never seen anybody change the motor. I've searched all over and apparently nobody makes such a thing. JET has some that are very close, but they still use the typical noisy portable motor. Just wondering if anybody has ideas for doing this.
