In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The Axminster Hobby Series HBS200N bandsaw is our smallest model and is designed to be bench mounted. It features a welded steel chassis with a cast iron table for strength and stability as well as a solid rip fence which locks rigidly. It’s a straightforward machine, with a direct drive motor and balanced cast alloy wheels. Blade width capacities range from 6-13mm; it also has copper blade guides and ball bearing thrust guides. These combine to effectively control the blade allowing thin slices of veneer to be cut and the top guide even has a rack and pinion height control. The top wheel is mounted in a welded steel sub frame with blade tensioning and tracking controls conveniently close. A single dust outlet port provides efficient dust removal when connected to a suitable vacuum extractor. The machine is supplied with a 6mm, 6tpi blade made from UK manufactured stock. This is a really effective little bandsaw and would be superb for the hobby or craft workshop or as an additional machine for smaller work.

Does what I want...good service

I bought a HBS200N hobby band saw from Axminster. It was delivered within two days. It is well build, has a steel case and a stable cast iron table. Unfamiliar with a bandsaw, I found it simple to set up,but I did find one problem. I was fitting the fence and found that the fixing on one side was slightly bent . I phoned Axminster and a replacement was with me the following day....absolutely excellent and without quibbles.
The saw itself is great for my purposes. It cuts veneers well and the included blade cuts reasonable curves.
The mitre fence comes as an optional extra and is solid, well fitting and worth having.
The aluminium back fence is solid enough but with mine I check with a square every time that it is fitting at a right angle . Sometimes it is a mm out and needs adjusting. Also where fence sits on the table there is a gap of maybe 0.5mm between the fence and table, so if you are cutting plastics you may want to bear that in mind. However these are slight problems and although my experience of band saws is limited I would recommend this machine to anyone who wants a small DIY bandsaw at a good price.

Excellent small band saw

Today came my band saw and I was very pleasant surprised how quick it came ! BY opening the box I noticed all was very well placed inside , the cutting table was surprisingly heavy. I did buy the JET version before but after it developed a fault I decide for the Axminster band saw and good I did.
After the assembly, which took about half an hour , all was ready to go and it worked perfect. A great point was the manual, too, it made life pretty easy.
Overall, the build quality is good and solid which I was expecting, easy access to band saw rollers for maintenance , no problems with adjusting the blade guides ,too!
Great product and may it long last.

Well engineered bandsaw

Build quality is about the best I've come across in a small bandsaw. Take time assembling and setting up and the machine is a joy to use. Unusual in that this is the first bandsaw I've ever bought where the blade tracking is spot-on straight from the box. I look forward to many years of pleasant use. Another hit from Axminster.
