Description

In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This benchtop bandsaw is made to exacting standards to encompass all the features found on top quality floor standing machines. Designed in house, we set out to create a bandsaw with many unique features. The one piece frame is made from heavy gauge welded steel and is extremely rigid to withstand high blade tensions. A cast iron deep section table is fitted, featuring a ground table surface and a rack and pinion tilt mechanism with indexing stops for common angles. The heavy gauge alloy rip fence is mounted on a cast alloy bracket which also incorporates a fine width adjustment. The fence is clamped with a cam action lever, easily released to allow swift adjustment. Blade guides are all ball bearing with micro adjustment for accurate control. The top guide is mounted on a steel hexagon bar for stiffness and adjusted for height by a small rack and pinion system. A pair of cast iron band wheels, nicely machined and balanced are driven by a multi V belt with a choice of two speeds. The BS11 features a 750W fixed speed induction motor, great for cutting all types of wood.

Excellent piece of kit

I bought this to replace my 9 year old Electra Beckum BAS 250G after eventually conceding I needed a saw with better sawing depth capability. I looked at several wheeled floor standing saws, but I was drawn to this one because I really wanted a machine which retained the chest-high table height of a typical benchtop saw. This Axminster saw seems to be in a class of one in this respect. Yes, it may seem expensive - but the areas where the money has been invested are clear to see and experience. The whole package exudes a feel of solidity - it weighs twice as much as the Electra Beckum despite only offering the same 250 mm throat. The cast iron wheels , substantial cast iron table and thicker steel frame are the culprits, but each factor is a positive contribution to the performance of the saw. I am really pleased with it - it does everything I was hoping for. The blade guide bearings are a revelation after the Electra - easy to adjust and a very robust feel to them. The cutting height adjustment rack has no backlash and maintains blade guide alignment over the full range of adjustment. Overall I am very pleased with it - there are just a couple of very minor niggles which I feel Axminster could easily resolve:
1) The cutting height adjustment knob is only 25mm diameter - much too small for my increasingly arthritic fingers to grasp and twist comfortably. I've fitted a 60 mm diameter knob courtesy of eBay.
2) As mentioned in a commentary elsewhere on this site about the sister variable speed saw, the retaining nut for the fence micro adjuster falls out of its track if the fence is pushed all the way back to maximise the saw throat. This is a silly niggle that could easily be rectified by making the fence locating track a centimetre or so longer.
3) The shim steel blade side guard which extends out of the upper wheelcase when the cutting height is lowered, rubs against the blade. You would have to be a contortionist with a determination to damage yourself to actually contact the blade without this guard in place, so I took it off.
