The 24" 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 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. 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 5HP motor with magnetic switch for industrial workRack and pinion table system offers smooth 45° right and 10° left table tilting Foot brake for rapid stopsUpper 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 workpiece Table has beveled edge to allow smooth stock movement and easier miter gauge entryRip fence and adjustable T-Slot miter gauge for diverse cutting jobs Cast iron drive wheels move the blade effortlessly through the stockTwo speed drive pulley expands sawing capability
Not all push blocks are created equal, and Micro-Jig's Grr-Rip Block is one that stands a head above the rest. It features "Gravity Heel" drop-down hooks on either end, which provide rigid backup support for heavier cutting tasks, such as jointing wide boards. Set the push block down in the middle of a board, and the hooks automatically retract, move it back to the end, and they drop down again. If you wish, you can also lock them in the retracted position. The extremely grippy "podular" rubber base won't clog with dust, and feels very durable. The shape of the Grr-Rip Block also allows it to be used on edge-perfect for resawing, or for raising panels vertically. Made in USA.The Grr-Rip Block increases safety and stability when working with jointers, band saws, router tables, shapers and table saws.Gravity Heels grab the tail-end of the board or automatically retract mid-board.Hooks easily locks in the up-position when not needed.Use the 90° flip guide for veneers or resawing on band saws.90° flip guide also functions as a guard to protect your fingers from bits and blades.Gravity Heels still engage while the GRR-RIP BLOCK is in vertical position for superior control.Comfortable ergonomic handle.Durable polymer construction.Deflector/Connector (48541) available separately for use as a chip guard when routing with a guide bearing or pin.
Norton Bluefire Rapid Cut chop saw wheels feature an upgraded abrasive blend of zirconia alumina and premium aluminum oxide, resulting in a wheel with two times the life and cut rate of standard aluminum oxide. The wheels are centrally reinforced and sandwiched by exposed rough sides for free-cutting, non-binding applications where minimal burr and burn are the key requirements. Use with a chop sawCentrally reinforcedType 01 wheel shape (flat)Ideal for mild carbon/high tensile steel, as well as cast iron, stainless steel and alloysZirconia alumina/aluminum oxide abrasive
