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.

The LU96R is a thin kerf blade that is designed to give long life and exellent 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 needeed with this blade!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.
Our new steel stands have gotten a size upgrade - now measuring 26" wide for greater stability and more storage potential. We've also beefed up the bottom stretchers and added a lip for a bottom shelf. They're perfectly sized for all Rockler and Bench Dog router tables, and are also ideal for accessory workbenches, chop saw stands, and sharpening stations. All components are drilled so you can easily add a cabinet with dust collection. 1/8" thick steel. Includes stand components, leveling feet and hardware. Finished stand measures 18"D x 26"W x 32"H. Risers (sold separately below) increase height to 35".Technical Details:Steel router stand measures 18"D x 26"W x 32"H. Rugged 1/8" thick steel.Beefier bottom stretchers with a predrilled lip support plenty of weight for a shelf or a completely enclosed cabinet.New, glossier finish.Predrilled holes make it easy to add sides and a bottom.
With a unique triple chip tooth design, this 10" blade leaves extremely smooth, true surfaces for glue and finish work. Ideal for ripping hard and soft woods 1/8" to 1" thick.Technical Details:A super-thin .091" kerf requires less power and allows for a faster feed rate, while laser-cut anti-vibration slots drastically reduce vibration and sideways movement in the cut, extending blade life and giving a crisp, swirl-free flawless finish.Application-specific super micrograin carbide teeth are 50-60% larger than standard carbide teeth and allow for multiple re-sharpenings.Anti-vibration technology eliminates sideways movement against the material for a quieter, smoother cut with a superior finish and long cutting life.Laser-cut heat expansion slots allow the blade to expand during use to keep the cut true and straight.Permanent red Teflon coating prevents rust and guarantees less working friction and resin adhesion.Precision-tensioned blade bodies made of high strength steel (40-45 Rc) stay flat and true throughout years of service.Tri-metal brazing technique produces strong, impact resistant bond between carbide teeth and steel blade body.
