Powermatic's PM2415 24'' 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 34'' 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 quickly 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 entryTwo 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

The Grr-Ripper Gravity Heel Kit provides a positive hook that grips the end of your board, ideal when you need additional support for feeding hard or heavy stock through your table saw, bandsaw or router table. The heel drops down automatically, aided only by gravity, and retracts when placed in the middle of the board. This means there's no need to remove it or adjust it when it's not needed. The Gravity Heel can also be adjusted laterally to provide backup support when you wish to prevent grain blowout of any kind. Simply saw through the heel to provide zero-clearance support. Five sacrificial heels are included, plus two heel spacers and mounting hardware. Fully adjustable for stock thicknesses from 0-1''Fits all existing Grr-Ripper push blocksEasy to use with two push blocks and the leapfrog method; heels grab the tail end of your board and automatically retract mid-boardIncreases control and stability when feeding long or short stock-provides extra support to help feed stock and prevent blow out
True to its name, purpleheart boasts vibrant purple heartwood, and a fine, satiny texture. Initially a dull brown, it takes on its brilliant tone shortly after the wood is cut. The sapwood is creamy, pinkish cinnamon. It has exceptionally high bending and crushing strength, is dimensionally stable, and is extremely resistant to decay. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Alternate name: Peltogyne.Tree: Usually tall, with a height of about 100 to 150 feet and a diameter of up to 48 inches, usually between 18 and 36 inches.Heartwood: Initially dull brown, rapidly changing to a bright, vibrant purple. Prolonged exposure darkens wood to a dark-purplish brown or dark brown, but the original color can be preserved with a UV inhibitor. Color variation among boards is reported to be moderate to high. Presence of minerals in some boards may cause uneven coloration and steaming is reported to affect the color. Light & Air-Induced Changes: Treatment against the effects of ultra-violet rays maintainss the original color of the wood. Treatment with Armorall, the car finish product, under lacquer is reported to hold the color well.Grain: Typically straight, occasionally wavy or irregular.Texture: Medium to fine.Luster: Medium to high.Movement: Very dimensionally stable.Natural Durability: Highly resistant to attack by decay fungi, very resistant to dry-wood termites, and somewhat resistant to attack by marine borers. Also reported to be resistant to chemicals such as acids.Cutting Resistance: Purpleheart is moderately difficult to saw. Tools usually require frequent sharpening. A reduced cutting angle of 15 degrees is recommended, especially when planing and moulding material with interlocked or wavy grain. Nailing: The wood requires to be pre-bored, but nail-holding capabilities are reported to be good.Steam Bending: The wood steam bends fairly well.Strength Properties: Bending strength in the air-dry condition is very high, and crushing strength is exceptionally high. It does not mar or dent easily, and is very heavy and dense.
