base provide rigidity for smooth, stable operation and accurate cutting. The saw’s overall dimensions are 30”L x 26”W
The 14” bandsaw is driven by a 1¾
hp, single-phase, 115/230V motor, which is prewired for 115V service. Power is transmitted to the drive pulley
system via a durable poly-V belt, delivering a blade speed of 3000 SFPM.
The bandsaw’s 21½” x 16” cast
iron table is set at 39” from the floor, and is precisely ground to assure
flatness. The table tilts 0-45o
to the right and 0-10o left, providing support for a wide range of bevel
cuts. A cast iron handwheel and large, easy-to-read
scale are used to set the desired table angle.
A standard miter slot is provided to accommodate a miter gauge (optional
accessory), as well as jigs and fixtures for specific projects.

measures 18-1/4”L x 6”H and slides on a steel
guide rail. The two-position fence can

other materials. The fence is fully
adjustable with a laser-etched scale and micro-adjust feature.
nine-spoke, upper and lower blade wheels are precisely machined and computer

tires. The wheels accommodate 125”-long
blades, ranging from 1/8” to 3/4” wide.
14” bandsaw enables precise blade tension adjustments by turning a handwheel and
setting a tensioning scale. A handy
blade tension release is included for making blade changes and relaxing the
blade when not in use. The blade can be
easily removed from the front of the table.
