In order to cut metals a band saw needs a gearbox or a step down
pulley system. This one has no pulley system so either it is a wood
cutting saw or there is a gearbox in the lower wheel bearing housing.

If the gearbox is present you should be able to bypass it by withdrawing
a shot pin and turning a collar (or some similar sort of mechanism)
and then the saw will run at a faster speed.
