New Axminster Trade Series Bandsaws
These bench top bandsaws with many unique features have been designed by Axminster Tools & Machinery.
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, which is 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. Cast iron band wheels, nicely machined and balanced are driven by a multi V belt with a choice of two speeds (basic) or ratios (upgraded).
There is a basic model (BS11) and an upgraded model (BS11-INV). Both models feature a 750W induction motor; the motor on the upgraded model has an inverter drive to control the motor speed. The basic model is ideal for cutting all types of wood; the upgraded model is suitable for many projects using all kinds of materials including metals.
Prices start at E949.96 inc vat for the basic BS11 model.
