    Marvel saws do as well. I think it's a fairly standard feature on most of the larger horizontal bandsaws.

      Bought a 10" 40 tooth carbide tipped blade for my miter saw and it went through the 1/2"x3" 6061 like butter - Thanks all.

        Easier than you thought it would be, huh? Now just don't use that blade for wood. It's amazing how much more wood will dull a blade than AL or brass. I can tell the difference immediately on the 14" bandsaw. A model shop I worked in had 14's marked for wood and metal, and it had nothing to do with differences in the speed or blades.
