The backbone of any joinery workshop is its sawbench. The saw bench should be powerful, accurate, reliable and simple to operate. The TA315, made by Sedgwick, is designed and built with all these requirements in mind. The rip fence is aluminium section, allowing for two working positions (ripping and angled ripping) and for movement fore and aft in relation to the sawblade to suit different operations. It is fixed to a heavy duty cast iron mounting bracket for rigidity, and has integral micro adjustment. The assembly runs on a nylon roller, gliding easily across the beds, and is supported by a 40mm diameter solid steel bar for rigidity.
The cast iron table incorporates ¾” T slots either side of the saw blade, and the machine comes complete with a 6” Protractor Scale. Also included is a fabricated steel Cross Cut Table designed for cutting mitres and compound angles, end trimming, squaring, dividing and trimming. The table is supported on the RHS by precision ground, case hardened bearing rollers running on a 40mm diameter solid steel bar, and on the LHS by a cast jib. The large cast iron table mounted on a heavy duty steel cabinet provides maximum timber support and a stable and accurate base for anchoring the spindle, rise and fall, and tilt mechanisms. The spindle is powered by a high efficiency IE2 industrial rated motor via a twin belt drive, and features large diameter saw flanges for blade stability. It runs in ‘sealed for life’ bearings mounted in a cast iron housing, and requires only minimal maintenance.
Rise and fall and tilt mechanisms are square thread screws operated by handwheels at the front and side of the machine. Both are easily accessible.The TA315 is available fitted either with a 620mm or 1,220mm sliding table, designed for cutting mitres and compound angles, end trimming, squaring, dividing and trimming. A large cast iron table mounted on a heavy-duty steel cabinet provides a stable and accurate base for attaching the saw blade mechanism. Fitted with a braked motor and emergency stop switch and available in both single and three phase models. A British made legend.
