In Detail

Model Engineer Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The first machine in our Model Engineer Series metal cutting bandsaw range is very functional and manufactured to a high standard. Especially suitable for the home Model Engineer where space may be tight but an accurate machine is required. Constructed mainly from cast alloy and cast iron, it 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 model. The whole bow and motor assembly can be swiveled from 0° to 60° on the cast alloy base to create accurate bevels. The blade is firmly controlled by larger double ball bearing guides. 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. The vice is accurately made from cast iron for durability. This is a compact and very well made machine with enough capacity for most model engineering requirements and can be relied on to deliver an accurate performance every time.

Great piece of kit for the price.

I have been using this little saw for about 18 months now. I originally bought it for the convenience of being able to lug it around as my workshop is a bit crowded. It has not disappointed on that score as you can lock the arm down and use it as a handle to pick it up and move it. However it is no lightweight shrinking violet, I have used it to cut everything from 150mm 5mm wall square tube to 100mm round bar - yes 100mm solid round en8 bar! It is not hugely accurate but is close enough to cut stock for the lathe or for welding and the Excalibur blades leave a lovely clean finish. The only fly in the ointment is that, if you push it a bit hard, the blade jumps off the wheels. Probably a safety feature but the cover is a complete pain to remove to re-fit it. The angle function is also fairly good and easy to adjust. I am nearly finished building a new metal shop and will be buying a bigger machine but I am not getting rid of this little gem of a saw - every workshop should have one.

Handy but not without fault

I bought this saw some time ago (about 12 months I think). It has been a very useful addition to my workshop and is ver efficient for its size. The down sides - the vice is too far away from the blade so a large piece of metal needs to be clamped in the vice in order to cut off the required piece. It is not very accurate so expect some extra allowance for machining square. My saw has also started throwing the blade at the slightest snag. However it remains a useful addition to the workshop until I can afford a larger more professional machine.

Nice bit of kit

Had this saw for a few weeks now for making gates and railings. Ideal for flat bar and box section. Precise cutting.
Happy with it

Great timesaver

I heartily recommend this bandsaw, it saves copious amounts of time and elbow grease. But it has one problem, notice on the picture how the built in vise jaws are of unequal length. This means that you might have a problem to grip short things that you want to cut. Solution? Mod the shorter jaw with an extension piece. It took me a couple of hours but it was time well spent. Apart from that... I love this little workhorse.

great budget saw

I needed a way of repeatedly mitre cutting aluminium extrusions accurately, using something portable as my workspace is limited to one room at the moment. I hadn't envisaged that a bandsaw would be practical or within budget and was more or less resigned to buying a circular mitre saw and stand. I was steered towards the bandsaw by the High Wycombe staff and assured that the model engineer series was a good bet.
The saw needed very little setting up and the first trial cuts have shown it to be accurate and easy to use. (Most importantly easy to put away afterwards).
Two tiny negatives: the protractor stuck to the base is a good 5 degrees off but a stop can be set at 90 degrees, so repeat moving of angles is made a little faster. I have just marked the 45 degree mark with a permanent marker on the base.
Secondly, the cable for the trigger switch runs internally and extremely close to the blade. In the unlikely event of a blade snapping...the whole casing could in theory go live if the cable is cut so isolate the machine before touching anything!

Otherwise, I'm really impressed with a good, budget machine which is very good in quality and I am confident it will be a good investment.
