In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The Axminster Hobby Series HBS310N is a medium sized floor standing bandsaw for general hobby use. A strong steel fabricated body features a tapered rear column offering greater rigidity. Cutting depth is easily controlled by a handwheel operated rack and pinion with balanced, cast alloy wheels to support the blade. The substantial, ground, cast iron table tilts smoothly up to 45° and is unusually large for a machine of this size. A standard 19mm channel is machined into the table and a close fitting all alloy mitre fence is included. The rip fence slides smoothly on a front aluminium extrusion and has a roller support bearing at the rear running in an alloy channel. The fence can also be turned through 90° when smaller items need to be cut and is locked with a quick action cam lever, securely clamping at both the front and rear. Ball bearing roller blade guides support the blade above and below the table which helps ensure straight cuts with a good finish together with a micro adjustment facility to enable accurate guide adjustment. The powerful 550W induction motor drives the blade through a pulley system giving a choice of two belt speeds. This allows the operator to select the correct speed for the task, saving undue stress on the blade and motor. This excellent bandsaw will satisfy the requirements of many enthusiastic hobby users in the home workshop. It’s supplied with mitre fence, rip fence, leg frame floor stand and a UK made Axcaliber blade.

I have had the saw now a few weeks and so far so good,its great having a saw that cuts straight,easy to put together,the blade that comes with it is terrible so remove it and change it before cutting anything,my only gripe is the belt on the bottom wheel keeps running on to the ridges at an angle,and get an annoying squeak,and may turn into a belt replacement before its due.
above all very happy.

band saw

I have had this saw now for a couple of weeks mainly for cutting rounds for the lathe,and does a cracking job and no real problems with any other cutting,
cuts straight as a band saw can cut.
my only gripe or minor problem is the belt on the bottom main wheel keeps running at an angle from the main motor pully,i will figure out why and how to resole it.
over all glad i bought it and got rid of the table saw, PROPER JOB

Pleased with the machine

I bought this a few weeks ago and have to say that with the machine I am very pleased. The meccano base was easy to assemble (if you are observant) and took only a short time. Mounting the machine to the base is a two person job but still easy and final assembly was quick. I have yet to use it in anger and perform a final setup with a different blade but overall I am pleased with my purchase for the money. Think carefully however about the wheel kit. Personally I would recommend one of the universal mobile bases instead. I cannot praise enough the staff in the North Shields store who were extremely approachable and helpful even getting the machine into my car. A credit to Axminster.

Good buy for the money

More than happy with this, was easy to assemble, it runs quietly, has roller race support for the blade top and bottom, the gate is easy to use, the table is finish ground, has lots of nice little features probably stolen from other manufacturers, however a good purchase I use it with 18 and 24 x 1/4" blades for cutting think aluminium, brass and copper which it does admirably also some thin wooden sections. For me it has been an excellent buy. My only criticism is that they will insist of fitting these cheap plastic discs where the saw passes through the table, it is cheap and nasty and the slot is too wide so drags thin material down into it but I will do the same as I did with the scroll saw and make a new aluminium one with a slot just wide enough for the blade, other than that happy.

Wasted 2 days on it, now sending it back

After wasting another whole on Saturday on the bandsaw I think it is time to give up and send it back...
This is without doubt the worst product I have ever purchased !!!
Its one problem after another:
First the guide fence arrived dented and scratched.
Then the foot broke off.
Then I found the Axis elastic ring for holding on the upper saw wheel in the bottom of the saw and spent ages trying to refit it.
2 guide bearing bolts won’t tighten as the treads are made of some soft metal and keep spinning -I have not used excess pressure on the bolts.
The new guide fence won’t go to zero and is different from the original one that came with the saw so I can’t use the fence extension now!
The upper blade guard rubs on the upper saw wheel
The sliding plate was rubbing on the drive bearing
I made one cut with the saw which when the foot broke ruined the piece of wood I was working on…
I have also bought a spare blade from Screw fix, which is now a waste of money
All in all I have wasted about 2 days of my time on your product
I am so surprised at the bad ‘quality-ness’ of it. £429 is a lot of money and I would expect a decent product for the amount of money I have spent. It could be that it was a ‘Friday afternoon or Monday morning job’ but I am not willing to risk spending another two days of my time on trying out a replacement – especially when the replacement guide fence was also faulty as described above.
All in all this has been a very very disappointing experience.
