Package deal comprises the Jet VBS18MW Wood & Metal Cutting Bandsaw and Jet Heavy Duty Mobile Base.
Jet VBS18MW Wood & Metal Cutting Bandsaw
This bandsaw is designed as a woodcutting bandsaw but with the capability of occasional metal cutting and vice versa. The VBS18MW is capable of cutting all timbers or small section ferrous and non-ferrous metals (using the correct blade). A 2-speed gearbox lets you choose the ideal cutting speeds for wood or metal; the 3 belt speeds are 250, 450 or 820m/min(wood cutting) or 20, 40 or 70m/min (metal cutting). Adjustment for the most suitable speed for efficient cutting is straightforward. The bandsaw comes with 2 chip trays for the separate collection of metal cutting swarf. A large hand wheel and rack system allows simple adjustment of the cutting height and there is an easy-to-read, built-in cutting height scale. Ball bearing guides support the blade both above and below the table. A small window provides a view for easy blade tracking control; the blade runs on balanced cast iron wheels with crowned, long-life PU tyres. The generous cast iron table tilts from -10° to + 45°, with support from widely spaced trunnions. This bandsaw functions just as well as the other JET bandsaws for wood cutting, but can also cut metal, so would be the perfect machine for large craft or multi-discipline workshops. Standard equipment includes NVR switch, 20mm bandsaw blade, 2 chip trays, rip fence and mitre fence for wood cutting, and crosscut vice for metal cutting.
