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 on both the crown guard and under the blade for efficient dust control when connected to a suitable extraction system, an extraction air flow of at least 1,000m³/hr is recommended.
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.
