Powermatic's PM2013 20'' Bandsaw features a powerful, totally enclosed, fan-cooled motor that keeps dust out for a long, productive life under the most demanding conditions. With its 24'' x 27'' cast iron table and precision balanced cast iron wheels, it runs smoothly and quietly, with hardly any vibration. The table tilts 45° to the right, 10° to the left, and comes standard with a T-slot miter gauge. A lower wheel brush prevents sawdust buildup from interfering with the tracking, while a convenient foot brake ensures rapid stops. With the large comfortable handwheels, adjustments are smooth and easy to accomplish. The bandsaw comes standard with 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, while the extra wide flange and heavy-duty rack and pinion trunnion assembly provide extra durability and eliminate any flex in the table.Features:Integrated foot brake rapidly stops the coasting bladeUpper and lower ball bearing guides mean less friction and 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 jobsCast iron drive wheels move the blade effortlessly through the stockLower wheel brush and 4'' dust collection port help keep blade and work area cleanTwo-speed drive pulley expands sawing capabilityExclusive 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 protectionMagnetic switch protects the motor from harm due to potential electrical supply issues
From shop standards like the crosscut sled and miter sled to specialized attachments such as the multi-purpose tilting drill press fixture and the ''super tenon jig,'' the 25 jigs and fixtures on this CD will have you tackling tasks in a fraction of the time it used to take. Add to that five bonus larger-scale projects, including an ingenious wall-mounted router table that folds flat against the wall to save space, and the ''ultimate miter saw stand,'' which includes a rolling cabinet with storage for tools and lumber, and your shop will be streamlined for optimum efficiency and enjoyment.

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.
This highly aggressive general purpose blade is ideal for a production environment. With its low number of teeth and steep hook angle, this blade can operate at high feed rates. These features also make it the blade of choice when crosscutting extremely thick stock. Use it with dimensioned stock where speed is more important than surface quality. The ideal working range is from 1/4" to 1-1/4" thick for ripping and 1-1/2" to 3-1/2" thick for crosscutting. Thicker or thinner material may be cut, but some loss of surface finish may occur. 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.
