introducing the new axminster trade series bandsaws
 
A bandsaw is probably the most versatile machine in any workshop and often the first machine used when preparing timber. These two bandsaws from the new Axminster Trade Series range are no exception.
 
The SBW4300B has a powerful motor, large capacities and is made to exacting standards. It offers excellent safety features including a braked motor and interlocked doors. Cast iron table and heavy duty blade bearing guides are standard; it also features a rigid rip fence and mitre fence. An often overlooked feature is the ease of changing the blade; it has a quick release blade tensioning lever which substantially speeds up the process of blade changing. Two belt speeds offer a choice of speeds for the job, big or small. A wide range of blades is available, all made here in Axminster. First class build quality, ease of use and versatility mark this bandsaw out as a top machine for trade use. It is supplied with a rip fence, mitre fence and blade. Price £1,099.50 inc vat (code 501200)
 
The SBW3501B has a high specification but a modest price and should prove popular with the trade or home workshop. The combination of a rigidly built steel body, finely ground cast iron table, deep section rip fence and fully adjustable ball bearing blade guides produces the level of performance demanded by both trade and amateur craftsmen. The rip fence runs on a calibrated aluminium extrusion and is locked firmly in place with a lever, giving a firm and accurate location. The adjustable precision mitre fence is T-slotted into the table for added safety and accuracy. The table tilt quadrants are set very widely apart to give the maximum support to the table and make the tilt action very smooth. Located at the rear of the machine are the blade tracking control, the blade tension indicator and a quick action blade tension lever, useful for both blade changing and for releasing the tension on the blade when the machine is not in use. The powerful induction motor transmits its power via a multi-groove flat belt, ensuring smooth running and zero slippage. Safety features include a motor brake, interlocked and micro-switched doors and an emergency stop switch. This bandsaw is beautifully made and supplied with a floor stand, rip fence, mitre fence and blade.
