This benchtop bandsaw is made to exacting standards to encompass all the features found on top quality floor standing machines. Designed in house, we set out to create a bandsaw with many unique features. The one piece frame is made from heavy gauge welded steel and is extremely rigid to withstand high blade tensions. A cast iron deep section table is fitted, featuring a ground table surface and a rack and pinion tilt mechanism with indexing stops for common angles. The heavy gauge alloy rip fence is mounted on a cast alloy bracket which also incorporates a fine width adjustment. The fence is clamped with a cam action lever, easily released to allow swift adjustment. Blade guides are all ball bearing with micro adjustment for accurate control. The top guide is mounted on a steel hexagon bar for stiffness and adjusted for height by a small rack and pinion system. A pair of cast iron band wheels, nicely machined and balanced are driven by a multi V belt with a choice of two speeds. The BS11 features a 750W fixed speed induction motor, great for cutting all types of wood. Supplied with a 1/2" x 6tpi bandsaw blade.
An optional floor stand is available, featuring adjustable height feet to give a comfortable working height.-bg
