Product Details

This professional bandsaw, features a welded steel frame for rigidity and will easily and accurately saw hard and softwood up to 90mm in depth. The two cast aluminium band wheels are precision machined and then balanced for concentricity. Two brushes clean the band wheels as they rotate, preventing dust becoming trapped between the blade and the wheel, which would result in an off-set cut. Three low-friction ball bearing blade guides sit above and below the table to prevent deflection and twisting. The upper blade guard assembly has a rack and pinion mechanism which allows for smooth and controlled workpiece height adjustment.

The cast table is precision machined and can be tilted through 45° for bevel, mitre and compound mitre sawing when using the mitre gauge. The rip fence locks at both the front and rear of the table, using one lever and when set the fence remains locked in position, even when under heavy load. Both upper and lower doors are fitted with a micro-switches to prevent the bandsaw from running if either door is opened. A large removable drawer at the bottom of the frame captures any left over dust that has not been removed via the dust ports. If the blade ever runs out of true a series of adjustment screws allow for fast and simple re tracking.

The bandsaw is powered by a 300 watt induction motor, which has high torque to minimise stalling under load and is extremely quiet in operation. This is a high build quality bandsaw that is accurate and easy to use and comes with mitre gauge, LED work light, no volt release switch and general purpose blade. 3 year warranty: if the bandsaw fails due to a material or manufacturing defect it or the component will be replaced free of charge. ©

Bandsaw arrived with minimal work required to get it up and running. The description on Rutlands website turned out to be very accurate. Considering the price, this is a well specified machine, well made and therefore very good value for money.

JD

For light work it's actually pretty good.
I don't cut curves with mine, it's exclusively for resawing thicker timbers, and I've cut 85mm tall oak, sapele, maple etc etc into veneers - not quick, but accurate and it does the job.
I added a different fence, and, of course changed the supplied blade.
For what it is, and for how much I paid, it's pretty good.

Bill Jarvis

Very pleased with this, my first bandsaw, good build quality and easy to get up & running.
I opted for this one over other cheaper versions due to the triple bearing guide system.
As others have mentioned the instruction book could be improved, but I have seen much worse.
Definitely recommended.

Charles Peters

I purchased this band saw for preparation of wood blanks for woodturning. I turn quite a number of bowls mainly from hardwoods and I needed a band saw that had the power to rough cut circular blanks from 3" thick wood. I chose this band saw because of the bearing guide system. It has a triple roller bearing below the table and a double roller bearing with a block above the table. This prevents the blade from wandering when I am pushing heavy blanks through and leaves a decent cut. The build quality and finish is very good for a machine of this price and the wheels run true as far as my eye can see. Overall I am please with my purchase and I would recommend. The instructions are not the greatest but then most of the set up is common sense.

Sean Kearney

Used a couple of times now excellent saw for the price. Only borrowed a 3 wheel band saw before this is a massive improvement. Heavy enough to be stable, just light enough to be able to move outside and clamp to a workmate. Got laughed at when I fell for the blurb about a handy tool tray, it is actually a dust tray, if you don't connect an extractor the dust goes out the slots under the lower wheel to the tray. Very usefull once I dug my tools out of the dust as it does help keep the work area clean..

Ron T

Like the other reviewers say this is an excellent bandsaw that is very simple to use, easy to adjust and well made and finished. I would buy again.

J Peters

This is a class above any other bandsaw in the same price range. It took me less than 10 minutes to assemble. You bolt on the rubber feet, attach the table in the rack and pinion tilt arm and add the fence. Mine appeared to already be tracked so the blade ran smoothly straight from the box. I have added a little more tension as I mainly work with hardwoods. Only down side is that the flexishaft on the light does not always hold in position, so I have strapped it in place. Would I recommend - without doubt.

Anthony Smalling

I am extremely impressed with the build quality, functionality and overall performance of this little beauty. The minute you open the box and remove the protective shell the quality oozes out. The wheels run true, the blade cuts true and it looks great. Very,very happy.
