In Detail

Powermatic 5 Year Warranty

The Powermatic PM1500 bandsaw is good looking, heavy-duty in every way and packed with features.

The fit and finish of all the parts is immaculate. The paintwork is excellent inside and out; the chromed hand wheels and knobs say quality. This machine is supplied with the patented Accu-Fence, a remarkably stout and versatile system, sturdy trunnions supporting a large table and heavy cast iron wheels. The rock-solid upper blade guide moves easily on rack-and-pinion gears and supports a heavy-duty blade guard.

The PM1500 has a large re-saw capacity at 350mm under the guides. Throat capacity is 370mm. A 2.2kW, 415V 3ph motor drives balanced, heavy cast iron wheels via a wide, multi-groove belt. The cast iron table is 545mm long x 406mm wide. It has an accurately milled slot for the mitre gauge (which is included). The table tilts 10° to the left and 45° right.

The Powermatic Accu-Fence is a Biesemeyer-style design, easy to adjust and it clamps firmly into position. The impressive extruded aluminium fence plate is easily changed from its 155mm high position to 12mm in the low position by loosening 2 knobs on the fence back. The fence can also be easily fitted with a 155mm long, 36mm diameter steel pin for a single point of contact setup, perfect for cutting to a line or for curved work.

The PM1500 also features a magnetic NVR switch and a unique electrical safety feature. This is built into the blade-tensioning lever; a cut-out switch prevents the saw from powering up when the blade is not tensioned, which eliminates the risk of the blade jumping off the wheels when it’s loose.

Upper and lower blade guides are quite large and require no tools when adjusting. Each element of the guides (double roller-bearing side guides and a rear-thrust bearing) can be adjusted independently after loosening by simply turning the knurled knobs that hold them in place.

The PM1500 has 2 dust ports that do an outstanding job. Bandsaws are, after all, notoriously difficult from which to collect dust. The upper port is positioned behind the blade just below the lower guide bearings; it extracts the dust close to the source. A second port is positioned at the base of the lower saw cabinet just below the upper port, keeping things even more tidy. Two brushes are also deployed in the lower cabinet. The first sweeps the blade clean while the other sweeps the tyre clean.

The PM1500 bandsaw sets new standards for design, performance and accuracy, combined with immaculate build quality. It is simply very impressive.
