Good machine - excellent value
Having struggled with a very old bench-top machine for over 30 years, I decided to splash out or buy a really good band saw. I am a hobby woodworker, working in garage workshop. I did look at the "Hobby" series of machines, both on-line with in Ax minster stores.
The stated capacity is 200mm, but, like all band saws it will struggle a bit at that. I would suggest trying no more than 150-160mm max in hardwood. It gives a good, clean cut, and the wood is easy to control. I would recommend cutting a 'push stick' from an off cut of wood. Why doesn't Ax minster supply one with the saw? Well, this is by way of a "sacrificial" accessory! It gets cut about - your hands don't! When it gets too tatty, cut another one!
The SBW3501B with its lofty specification with modest price, is a very popular machine for the trade or home workshop. The integration of rigidly construct steel body, large, finely ground chuck iron table. Deep piece rip fence plus micro controllable ball bearing―blade guides produces the high level of performance demanded by both trade as-well as amateur craftsmen. The rip⁃fence runs on a calibrated aluminium⁃extrusion also is locked firmly in place with a lever, giving a solid along with accurate location. The adjustable precision miter fence is T-slotted into the table for added safety together with accuracy. The ´table tilt´ quadrants are set very widely―apart to give the maximum support to the table in-conjunction with to make the tilt action smooth.
The powerful induction motor―transmits it's power via a multi-groove horizontal belt, ensuring flat running as-well as zero slip. Safety features include a motor brake, interlocked also micro-switched doors along with an emergency finish switch. Beautifully made together with sure to please. Supplied complete with floor stand, rip fence, miter fence in-conjunction with a 6tpi band saw blade.
