The BS350C bandsaw features several unique innovations that promise enhanced accuracy and ease-of-use. It is more effective, accurate and easier to use than any other machine in its class. Featuring a 1-1/2HP motor coupled with the heavy-duty cast iron band wheels, it has easily handled everything thats thrown at it. The two speeds, which are slighty faster than comparable machines, make it ideal for cutting non-ferrous metals as well as wood. The 150mm tall fence that can be easily rotated flat for thinner stock, and double-sided fence mount make this a machine that is so easy to setup and use it leaves you free to concentrate on the project at hand.
