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.

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.
The award winning PM2000 table saw sets a new standard for innovation with an array of patented features and massive body design. It boasts the heaviest cast iron base in its class that virtually eliminates table vibration. The cast iron tables are oversized, and the push button arbor lock is accessible from above the table top to eliminate the need for dual arbor wrenches. The quick-release riving knife design helps reduce the chance of kickback. The blade tilt scale has adjustable angle indicators for repetitive bevel cuts. Built-in retractable omni-directional caster system mobilizes your table saw. A wide stance, heavy-duty trunnion and concave teeth on the trunnion gears promote easier raising and tilting of saw blade. Poly-V drive belt system results in quieter, more efficient power transfer from the motor to the arbor with virtually no vibration and less heat build up. Built-in dust collection port with sloped cabinet floor and convenient access to the inside of the saw cabinet make for simple clean-up. The saw has a proprietary safety switch with magnetic interlock, and the stop button can be knee activated.Quick release riving knife greatly reduces binding/kickback risk Built-in retractable caster system (patent pending) for immediate shop mobility Push button arbor lock (patent pending) for rapid blade change Poly-V drive belt system delivers efficient, quiet operation Wide stance heavy-duty trunnion for stability and smooth blade positioning Adjustable angle indicators (patent pending) on the blade bevel scale for repeatable bevel cuts Industrial-duty Accu-Fence System ensures accurate cuts Enclosed cabinet with cast iron base for rigidity Heavy-duty deluxe micro-adjust miter gauge with aluminum extruded 13" extension fence, for good workpiece support and fine angle adjustments. Precision ground, high luster, cast iron table top with front and rear edge bevel to prevent catching of miter gauge on table edge Heavy-duty chrome plated handwheels contribute to smooth trunnion/arbor movement Independent leaf blade guard and anti-kickback pawls promote safe cutting Industrial magnetic controls, and jumbo stop switch is reachable with the knee Built-in 4" port for dust collectionStandard Equipment:TEFC Motor with magnetic controls Standard left and right cast iron extension wings Accu-Fence System with 50" to the right cutting capacity Melamine-surface extension table, legs and Rout-R-Lift Arbor wrench Motor cover Blade, power cord plug not included
