THE BS400 BANDSAW OFFERS PROFESSIONAL QUALITY, INDUSTRIAL FEATURES AND LARGE CAPACITIES TO THE MID RANGE BANDSAW MARKET. IDEAL FOR THE WORKSHOP WITH LIMITED SPACE, THIS MACHINE BRINGS AFFORDABLE SOLID PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY WITHIN REACH OF THE DISCERNING WOODWORKER
Like all bandsaws in the range, a solid cast iron table provides unrivaled stability and solidity. An industrial style cast trunnion supports the table and allows it to be tilted one-handed on a rack and pinion. Dynamically balanced cast iron bandwheels ensure superior strength and reduced vibration – a feature not usually found on other machines at this level. The 2hp motor and 270mm depth of cut mean this machine can cope easily with large timbers yet is also equally capable of fine, precise cuts and veneers.
The build quality and structural strength of the BS400 is second to none for this size of machine, featuring all the constructional attributes that made the BS500 such a success. The heavyweight blade tensioning system alone is far above the standards of other machines in this price range. Another feature borrowed from the BS500 is the sturdy rip fence, held by a cast mount which slides easily on a solid steel bar.
The exceptional value for money this machine offers is difficult to appreciate without seeing the machine first hand.
