The Axminster Trade AT254SB Saw Bench is a proven, robust machine, constructed largely from cast iron and heavy gauge steel. The 254mm blade gives a cutting depth of up to 75mm, and is amply powered by a 2.2kW 1ph induction motor. The cast iron table gives great strength and rigidity as well as providing a smooth working surface. The rip fence is full length and is cam locked solidly onto rails at the front and back of the table. It also has a sliding sub fence to make rip work safer and is also provided with a micro positioning adjustment to ensure accurate measurement. A mitre fence slides in a choice of T-slot grooves in the table either side of the blade. Both the blade height and tilt controls have decently large handles, are conveniently located and lock in position. A side access door is fitted to give easy access for maintenance.
The standard saw has a steel right hand side support table included; this gives 610mm cut to the fence, allowing full sized boards to be cut lengthways. A pressed steel feed-off table is also supplied, as is an Axcaliber 50T TCT general purpose blade. Dust extraction is provided with a 63mm hose on the crown guard leading to a combined 100mm dust outlet for efficient dust control when connected to a suitable high volume extraction system.
Further options are available: (1) a kit of two cast iron extension tables that can be fitted either one each side or both to the right of the blade, complete with longer fence rails; (2) a fully functioning sliding table kit to allow large board materials to be cut. When both options are fitted this saw bench becomes a very versatile machine for many jobs in the workshop.
N.B. 16 Amp supply required, plug fitted.
