Powermatic's PM2013 20'' Bandsaw features a powerful, totally enclosed, fan-cooled motor that keeps dust out for a long, productive life under the most demanding conditions. With its 24'' x 27'' cast iron table and precision balanced cast iron wheels, it runs smoothly and quietly, with hardly any vibration. The table tilts 45° to the right, 10° to the left, and comes standard with a T-slot miter gauge. A lower wheel brush prevents sawdust buildup from interfering with the tracking, while a convenient foot brake ensures rapid stops. With the large comfortable handwheels, adjustments are smooth and easy to accomplish. The bandsaw comes standard with a 4'' dust collection port for connection to a work shop dust collection system. The upper wheel housing and guidepost have been designed with the rigidity necessary for industrial use, while the extra wide flange and heavy-duty rack and pinion trunnion assembly provide extra durability and eliminate any flex in the table.Features:Integrated foot brake rapidly stops the coasting bladeUpper and lower ball bearing guides mean less friction and longer life for blade and guidesRack and pinion adjustable blade guide post for precise locating of guides to workpieceTable has beveled edge to allow smooth stock movement and easier miter gauge entryRip fence and adjustable T-Slot miter gauge for diverse cutting jobsCast iron drive wheels move the blade effortlessly through the stockAccu-Fence has complete adjustability for aligning to blade and squaring to tableSturdy cast iron table and trunnion assembly offers maximum rigidity for large work piecesPositive locking cam with pressure adjustmentOversized side plate can be used in the horizontal or vertical positionElectrical interlock prevents the bandsaw from starting when the blade is de-tensioned (patent pending)Four-sided blade guard for optimum protectionMagnetic switch protects the motor from harm due to potential electrical supply issues
Made of high quality 10 ounce Shaker felt to capture dust to one micron! This material has both high breath ability and excellent dust release - the ratio of collection is 50 CFM per square foot of cloth. Shaker felt is "singed" on the collection side to create the dust cake that actually captures additional dust.
This electronically driven automatic blast gate system is an optional upgrade to the iVac Pro Wireless Dust Collection Control System, bringing one-touch simplicity to managing your dust collection airflow. Simply turn on your power tool, and the iVac Pro Tool (42891, sold separately) sends a wireless signal to automatically open the corresponding Pro Blast Gate, and another signal to the iVac Pro Switch (42897, sold separately), which turns on your dust collector. Turn off your power tool, and after a short interval to clear dust, the blast gate closes and the dust collector powers down. This automation prevents the irritating dust clouds that result from forgetting to open a blast gate, and the reduced suction that results from forgetting to close it afterward. The system also ensures that at least one gate stays open when the vacuum is on to prevent overloading the motor on your dust collector. Prevents the irritating dust clouds you get from forgetting to open the blast gateReduces the potential for accidents from reaching for blast gates while machines are runningOptimizes the suction in your system by keeping a minimum number of gates open at one timeBlast gates can also be controlled via the handheld wireless remote or manually with the toggle switchKit includes two blast gates for 4'' hose, two 115v AC adapters, a wireless remote control and a manual toggle switchUp to eight blast gates can operate on one systemAdditional blast gates available separately (52504)RF range: 40'
