Those who rely on an automatic cutoff feature on your bandsaw are free to set up a large cutting job, and walk away. The auto cut-off feature stops the bandsaw blades once the job is done. Does your saw have a thermal cut-off function as well? If not, the saw will draw current, getting hotter and hotter until a serious fire hazard is smoldering away in your work area. Don't leave a bandsaw with no thermal cut-off alone to draw current. You may just come back to a smoking pile where the saw used to be.
