The second machine in our Model Engineer Series metal cutting bandsaw range is of much heavier built, with greater capacities, a cast iron base and vice assembly. Especially suitable for the serious home model engineer or small engineering workshop that needs a robust and accurate machine. This machine has a larger, very rigid bow that enables a high degree of tension to be applied to the blade. The blade guides and blade tensioning system are also beefed up compared to the lighter models. The whole bow and motor assembly can be swivelled from 0° to 60° on the cast iron base to create accurate bevels. The bow pivot casting is also much larger and stronger than on the two lighter models. The blade is firmly controlled by larger double ball bearing guides and the vice is accurately made from cast iron for durability. The direct drive motor is fitted with variable speed, so speed can be adjusted to suit the task in hand. There is also the choice of a fully automatic function or it can be hand operated by a trigger switch on the bow. A locking Emergency Stop switch is fitted. A spring system supports the weight of the bow during both operations. A latching pin holds the bow in the closed position for ease of carrying. There is also an optional plate steel floor stand, fitted with wheels for mobility. This is a compact and very well made machine with enough capacity for model engineering or small engineering workshop requirements and it can be relied on to deliver an accurate performance every time.
