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.

Great saw

As others have said, this is a very well made saw with excellent features at a very reasonable price.

Mine had a couple of assembly problems that others may encounter. Firstly a number of fasteners were loose, including all three that hold the table bracket to the frame.

Secondly, when tensioned the blade did not run centrally on both wheels, being several mm further forward on the lower wheel. I removed the wheel to check and noticed that the boss is wider on one side. I put the wheel back reversed with the wider side next to the motor and that fixed the problem. It's always worthwhile to carefully go over and adjust any new machine.

Overall I am absolutely delighted with the saw.

Great little Saw

Very pleased with this saw, quick and easy to set up except for the table level adjuster bolt which is a faff to adjust because it does not screw into a threaded hole like the push stick hook has ?
I fitted mine with a Rivnut making it a doddle to adjust "if" necessary.
Only other gripe is it doesn't come with the mitre fence and have to buy that separately.

It cuts easily and true and is capable of some very fine cuts.

Fantastic little saw

I've had to wait a bit for this little fella because it was out of stock. I'm delighted I waited instead of plumping for a different model. It arrived two days after I ordered it - and I live in Ireland! That's fast! Typical of Axminster though; their customer service is second to none.
The saw took only about 20min to set up, and it cuts like a dream. Straight with the fence and no blade drift. Powerful motor considering the size. Love the cast iron table; one of the main reasons for buying it. I've got a large bandsaw for heavy duty work, but I know this fella will be used a lot for smaller, less taxing but intricate work.

Excellent machine

I can't really add more to the other reviews except to say that I agree with all that they say. I went in to the store to buy a Jet bandsaw, but was invited to look at the new Axminster model which hadn't been fully set up on show, but was obviously of better build quality than the Jet and it took almost no persuasion to change my choice. On the Jet, for instance, the mitre fence slot was too wide, making it a sloppy fit. On this machine it's precise, in addition to which the whole worktop is a more solid cast iron structure. It seems to cut through anything that a hobbyist is likely to require. Well done, Axminster.

Good choice for the hobby workshop

Very good size for the hobby user without being a huge lump, easy to lift on to the bench. Sturdy steel frame with a nice quality cast iron table which makes for a very solid set up.
Cuts straight and true, I cut a veneer along the grain of a piece of 40mm pine and it was within 0.003" end to end! The fence is upright and true but needs checking with a square longitudinally, probably good practice to do that anyway. I set the saw up with reference to Alex Snograss's informative and instructional video
The saw performs better than I expected, I'm only a hobby user but we tend to overdrive our machines through necessity sometimes, this little saw will do everything I need it to and for the price it's great value for money. Nice quiet saw with enough power for the average user. I'm happy with my choice. Having run an Axminster AWEPT planer thicknesser for many years I wasn't in any doubt that Axminster would supply a decent product. I can recommend this band saw.
