This is an extremely useful metal cutting bandsaw, especially suited to general fabrication workshops. The chassis and bow are made from robust cast iron mouldings and incorporate a swivel base to allow mitre cuts up to 60°R and 45°L. The cast iron vice has a clever slide action to allow the mitre cuts to be made easily with the work being closely held near the blade. The vice also has a quick release cam action clamp.
This machine has an inverter drive to the motor, allowing variable speed via a simple control knob. This feature enables the correct cutting speed for each material to be easily selected, greatly extending blade life. An adjustable hydraulic downfeed controls the cutting pressure. You can also select manual or automatic operation, the manual setting allowing the cutting of delicate materials. There is a hydraulic blade tension gauge and a safety cut-off switch in the event of a blade breakage.
The welded steel base houses the coolant pump and provides support for the heaviest cutting tasks. A material support roller is also fitted. All the controls are grouped together on a panel, including a digital blade speed meter. This is a very well made bandsaw and one which will be able to carry out almost any cutting task within its overall capacities.
