A versatile, medium sized metal cutting bandsaw with several notable features. This machine will be ideal for the smaller fabrication jobs, especially those which require materials accurately cut at various angles. Made predominately of cast iron, this machine features a swivelling head, which is a much more accurate and convenient method of cutting bevels or angles than the more usual pivoting vice jaws. Cutting pressure is set on the hydraulic support ram, whilst 3 belt speeds allow the correct speed for the job to be selected.
The material vice has a large capacity, and features a quick release mechanism to allow fast setting.
The floor stand has a pair of wheels at the rear, which allows easy mobility when you slide out the handle, but also offers a stable platform in use.
Well finished and reliable, this has proved to be a very good small bandsaw.

OK once you adjust and fettle it a bit!I bought this saw for work as we need to cut bar stock and angle from time to time. Initially it was ok but didn't cut square, then it started throwing blades for fun as the top wheel was way out of alignment/parallel with the bottom wheel. I did the standard Google and found various instructions for adjusting it, http://madmodder.net/index.php?topic=8392.0 is just one of the places you can find the instructions. I've managed to get mine so it cuts reasonably straight now and so far the balde has stayed on for a while (famous last words!) I'll mod it to add coolant to help prolong the life of the blades in the near future. I have made a plate that I can put on the lower bearing plate that enables me to cut like a vertical bandsaw which is useful for notching the corners of plates etc. Overall it's a useful piece of kit and once you've gone through the adjustments as per the downloaded instructions it's a decent piece of kit as long as you're not expecting production tool quality of cuts.

A great addition to the shopI've owned one of these previously, and it was sold. I've came back considering to buy the same saw again due to how good it was. There's a few cringe worthy pieces such as the poor quality emergency stop button, and the motor tension adjuster leaves lots to be desired. The chuck also gets in the way if you're planning on doing sharp angles, but if you're quite happy just cutting stock to save you having to hacksaw it you won't be disappointed with this purchase.

Worth the moneyBought this saw for my thriving home metal shop very good for the price but it lacks the ability to be made into a wet saw so after some modification it is now a wet saw great valve for money the only downside is the poor vice quality and the poor bolts and items supplied with it
