The 20" Bandsaw has a powerful, totally enclosed, fan-cooled motor to keep dust out for longer life and maximum performance. An extra large cast iron table offers more work area in front of the blade. The table tilts 45° to the right and 10° to the left and comes standard with T-slot miter gauge. The saw blade is surrounded by a fully adjustable guard, yet easily accessible for changing. Cast iron drive wheels are balanced and equipped with vulcanized rubber tires. A lower wheel brush eliminates sawdust buildup. The convenient foot brake ensures rapid stops while the steel and cast iron construction provides additional stability and durability. Large easy-to-use handwheels give smooth adjustments. The bandsaw comes standard with a 2-speed drive pulley, and 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. Extra wide flange along with a heavy-duty rack and pinion trunnion assembly provides extra durability while eliminating any flex in the table.Features:Powerful 3HP motor with magnetic switch for industrial workRack and pinion table system offers smooth 45° right and 10° left table tiltingFoot brake for rapid stops Upper and lower ball bearing guides mean less friction, 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 jobsTwo speed drive pulley expands sawing capability
This Swedish-made, high-precision miter boxe is made for the discerning old-school woodworker who appreciates the accuracy and craftsmanship of doing things by hand. The Nobex Champion is their largest model and is the best all around miter box for the cabinetmaker's and joiner's shop. Machined horizontal and vertical base surfaces give you maximum support while cutting and ensure accuracy to 0.08°. Also features step-less locking at any angle for custom cuts, as well as pre-set lock positions. Large steel feet make it easy to clamp to your workbench for a sturdy base. Comes with a standard 18TPI blade that gives you a smooth, aggressive cut.
The distinctive striped appearance of Zebrawood has made it a favorite for decorative inlays and veneers. The color ranges from golden-yellow to a peanut butter tone with chocolate veins running through it. The wood is hard, dense and extremely tough. These thin boards are machined S4S to 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses, eliminating wear and tear on your planer. You won't have to worry about tearout, which is difficult to prevent when planing thin stock. Thin boards are ideal for edging, veneering, inlay, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock, bent laminations and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Native to: West Africa, especially Gabon and Cameroon.Tree Data: 48" to 60" diameter trunk. The trees generally have very thick bark.Sapwood: Pale yellow.Heartwood: Light golden-yellow or pale yellow-brown, with narrow streaks of dark brown to almost black, giving a striped appearance.Grain: Generally interlocked or wavy, yielding a ribbon figure. Texture: Medium to coarse. Luster: High luster.Resin: Occasional resin pockets.Movement: Dimensionally stable. Retains its shape well after machining.Veneering Qualities: Zebrawood is used extensively in veneers for cross banding and inlays. Bundles of veneer should be stabilized with weights to prevent buckling.Working characteristics: Responds well to hand and machine tools. Quite easy to saw, but due to interlocking grain, planing is very difficult, often resulting in tearout.Polishing: Good polishing and finishing qualities. Strength: Compressive strength parallel to the grain is high. The wood is hard, very heavy, and very dense. It is tough, with good impact resistance.
Designed to give long life and excellent finish on the top and bottom of laminates, melamine & veneered plywood. The laser-cut anti-vibration design yields the plate acoustically dead. This reduces the sideways movement of the cutting edge to prevent chipping in manmade materials such as laminates. This dramatically extends cutting life and finish. No scoring blades needed with this blade!The Silver I.C.E. (Industrial Cooling Element) coating helps resist heat build-up up to two times longer than standard, polished steel blades. The extra protection from heat stress and pitch build-up helps reduce drag, extending the life of your blade and saw motor.Also available with the premium Perma-SHIELD coating.Technical DetailsTriple Chip Grind (TCG) tooth design offers longer life when cutting abrasive manmade materialsLaser-cut anti-vibration slots drastically reduce vibration and sideways movement in the cut - extending blade life, and giving a crisp, swirl-free flawless finishSilver I.C.E. (Industrial Cooling Element) Coating is a revolutionary coating that resists corrosion and resin or "pitch" build-up and resists heat up to 2 times longer than standard polished blades.Features Ti-Co Hi-Density Carbide Laminate Blend for maximum performanceAnti-vibration designOne Freud Industrial LU97M Double Sided Laminate/Melamine Saw Blade
