The blade lubricant stick extends the life of saw blades, keeping them sharper longer. A special blend of oils and wax helps protect blades from heat damage and clogging because of the accumulation of wood, pitch and metal chips. Excellent performance on band saw, scroll saw and coping saw blades.Technical DetailsUse on metal, plastic and wood cutting bladesHelps prevent cloggingReduces heat - extends blade lifeLubricant stick measures 1" diameter x 8" longCarefully apply to moving blade
Designed with an enormous 18'' resaw capacity, multi-step blade tensioning system, precision blade guides, and a 5HP motor hungry for hardwoods, the new PM1800 is a bandsaw like no other. It comes standard with all the extra features you've come to expect from Powermatic. With its 24'' x 27'' cast iron table and precision balanced cast iron wheels, it runs smoothly and quietly, with hardly any vibration. The easy-to-adjust T-square style fence includes a 6-1/2'' resaw fence that gives you excellent right angle support when running wide boards vertically. Whether you're resawing thin veneers or just thicknessing boards to minimize waste that would otherwise be eaten by your planer, this saw is more than up to the task. Read on to learn more about this industrial-quality bandsaw from Powermatic.Features:Blade tension lever has full tension, partial tension, and release settings for easy blade changes and trackingMicro-adjustable, virtually tool-free bearing guide system gives precise blade control with reduced frictionGrooved thrust bearing stabilizes smaller bladesMagnetic starter with power indicator lamp and jumbo stopMagnetic switch protects the motor from harm due to potential electrical supply issuesSolid chrome knobs and handles ensure solid grip and firm lockingComputer balanced cast iron wheels reduce vibrationAdjustable miter gauge with stopsExclusive Powermatic T-Square style Accu-Fence maximizes accuracy and safetyAccu-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 protectionIntegrated foot brake stops the coasting blade
Freud engineers have discovered the ultimate combination of fused tooth grind geometry, blade body rigidity, precise tensioning, a special carbide blend and superior carbide brazing, non-stick Perma-SHIELD coating and high performance anti-vibration - all working together in concert to provide the ultimate cut. One blade does it all. Whether you're ripping or crosscutting, a Premier Fusion blade will tackle any project.The Perma-SHIELD coating covers the blade plate and cutting edge in a protective layer, reducing heat build-up. Perma-SHIELD blades resist binding in large volume cutting, reducing subsequent blade warp. The coating lubricates the blade, allowing it to spin freely, and eliminates pitch and debris build-up on the blade.Also available as a thin kerf blade.Technical DetailsLaser-cut anti-vibration slots drastically reduce vibration and sideways movement in the cut - extending blade life, and giving a crisp, swirl-free flawless finishThe combination of unique design and special polymer filler in the anti-vibration slots reduces vibration above and beyond any other blade, resulting in superior performanceUnique side grind polishes the material to produce a superior finishNo stabilizers neededPerma-SHIELD Non-Stick Coating is a state-of-the-art coating formulation that is superior to any today, and will withstand the toughest woodworking applications. Like Silver I.C.E., Perma-SHIELD eliminates pitch and debris build-up reducing down time for cleaningFeatures Ti-Co Hi-Density Carbide General Purpose Blend for maximum performanceAnti-vibration designOne Freud Premier Fusion Saw Blade
This advanced model of the GRR-Ripper boasts all of the same innovative features of the GR-100 but comes with three additional accessories (see below)-including the Gravity Heel Kit-to improve the control and expandability of the GRR-Ripper System. The Micro Jig GRR-Ripper Advanced 3D Pushblock (GR-200) is designed to feed your workpiece more safely and more accurately than with conventional push blocks, resulting in intact fingers, less burning and less waste. With its 3-Directional control, it gives you downward, forward, and lateral pressure on the stock for maximum control. Since it acts as a movable blade guard that travels with your hand, it provides an additional safety buffer between the blade and your hands. Whether you are making razor-thin veneer strips, building miniatures, or creating exquisite furniture you will save time, materials, and fingers with the GRR-Ripper. This package includes these additional accessories: The Gravity Heel Kitprovides a positive hook that grips the end of your board, ideal when you need additional support for feeding hard or heavy stock through your saw. The heel drops down automatically, aided only by gravity, and retracts when placed in the middle of the board. It can also be adjusted laterally to provide zero-clearance backup support to prevent grain blowout. Five sacrificial heels are included, plus two heel spacers and mounting hardware. The Adjustable Spaceradds increased gripping surface for tackling larger stock. It also adds one inch of cutting width to the GRR-Ripper and acts as a secondary balance support for small stock and straight-line ripping. Great add-on for working on the router table, and eliminating snipe. The Stabilizing Plateadds a new dimension of control to the GRR-Ripper. It is particularly useful when cutting small narrow pieces of stock. Perfect for trickier cuts like resawing, bevel edging, pattern routing, and much more. It also acts as a secondary fence that travels with the GRR-Ripper along the left side of the stock. It holds the off-cut piece in its original position through the entire cutting operation. Some users call it a "Feather Board Plate," but unlike a featherboard, it exerts no sideways pressure. Instead it simply holds the drop-off piece in position as it travels past the blade, preventing binding. Click the video to see a demo today.
