Description

In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The SBW3501B with its high specification and modest price, is a very popular machine for the trade or home workshop. The combination of rigidly built steel body, large, finely ground cast iron table, deep section rip fence and micro adjustable ball bearing blade guides produces the high level of performance demanded by both trade and amateur craftsmen. The rip fence runs on a calibrated aluminium extrusion and is locked firmly in place with a lever, giving a solid and accurate location. The adjustable precision mitre fence is T-slotted into the table for added safety and accuracy. The table tilt quadrants are set very widely apart to give the maximum support to the table and to make the tilt action very smooth. Cutting depth is controlled by a well engineered rack and pinion system, with a lock to set the guides into position. At the rear of the machine are the blade tracking control, the blade tension indicator and a quick action blade tension lever, useful for both blade changing and for releasing the tension on the blade when the machine is not in use. The powerful induction motor transmits its power via a multi-groove flat belt, ensuring smooth running and zero slip. Safety features include a motor brake, interlocked and micro-switched doors and an emergency stop switch. Beautifully made and sure to please. Supplied complete with floor stand, rip fence, mitre fence and an Axcaliber Premium blade.

Good machine - excellent value

Having struggled with a very old bench-top machine for over 30 years, I decided to splash out and buy a really good bandsaw. I am a hobby woodworker, working in garage workshop. I did look at the "Hobby" series of machines, both on-line and in Axminster stores. What led me to decide on this machine were several features. First the excellent cast-iron table, second the fence, and third the easy blade tensioning. Having looked at the manual on-line (PDF document), I assumed this would be included with the machine - not so! The supplied manual is fairly basic, and does not cover enough details to make it useful! However, the PDF colour manual is essential to correct assembly and operation of the saw! A quick contact to Axminster, and a printed out version of the manual was on its way to me. Well done Axminster!
Now, assembly is fairly straightforward, but it is essential to have 2 people to assemble it - it is very heavy! Once assembled and adjusted, how does it work? It ripped easily through softwood, and re-sawing of some mahogany went well - if a little slowly. The stated capacity is 200mm, but, like all bandsaws it will struggle a bit at that. I would suggest trying no more than 150-160mm max in hardwood. It gives a good, clean cut, and the wood is easy to control. I would recommend cutting a 'push stick' from an offcut of wood. Why doesn't Axminster supply one with the saw? Well, this is by way of a "sacrificial" accessory! It gets cut about - your hands don't! When it gets too tatty, cut another one!
What would I improve with this saw? The fence is very good, but the scale on the edge guide refers only the the basic fence. Add the aluminium accessory fence and the markings are wrong! You have to add in the width of the fence to the markings on the scale. On the subject of the fence, if you have it vertical, and cut small pieces , the fence cannot get too close to the blade, as the blade guide gets in the way! A smaller fence as an optional accessory, perhaps? The mitre fence is very basic. It has basic markings at 5 degree intervals, but I would use a mitre gauge to check it. If this is important to you, buy a better one. A work-light shining on the cutting blade helps a lot - especially if the saw is in a dark corner of the workshop. The only other comment is, please Axminster, supply the colour PDF instruction sheet with the machine!
