This metal cutting bandsaw is designed for use in small fabrication and general engineering workshops. It has a swivelling head design which makes it easier to create accurate mitre cuts. Heavily built in cast iron to provide high strength and stability, it includes a floor stand with a built-in coolant system.
The 750W 230V motor drives the blade through a direct drive variable speed system and is controlled by a convenient switch box mounted on the blade bow. An adjustable hydraulic damper controls the blade downfeed, with the machine being stopped automatically once the cut is completed. A selector switch allows hand control via a switch mounted on the bow, useful for starting or making delicate cuts. The variable speed drive gives a great flexibility of use over many materials and takes the effort out of changing speeds, making the blade last longer.
The head and bow assembly swivels through 0° to 45° L and 0°-60°R with a scale and locking clamp. Cleverly, the vice slides across to give full material support for cutting precise angles. Coolant flow is controlled with a small valve mounted on the bow.
This is a thoroughly well engineered machine that will suit many workshops, schools and colleges.
