This slim machine is suitable for every workshop, garage or hobby space and delivers top performances. In addition to wood, the band saw is also suitable for sawing plastics, plastics or styrofoam. Sawing bends and connection bends is a breeze for the BS305.
The power is supplied by a low-noise induction motor that drives the saw via a belt.
This floorstanding woodworking band saw BS305 with a cutting capacity of 150mm (6"), which is big enough for most workshops. The power is delivered by a quiet induction motor with a belt drive to the band saw wheel.
An important quality meter of a band saw is the guidance of the saw blade to be able to cut straight and accurately. A two speed pulley allows the correct blade speed to be selected, depending on the hardness of the material being cut. The Lumberjack B305 has three bearings on the blade guard. The two sealed bearings mounted side-on to the blade, control blade twist and keep it true. The rear bearing takes the thrust of the back of the blade allowing it to run freely. The same setup is then repeated beneath the table.

The cast iron table tilts from 90 degrees to 45 degrees, on a rack & pinion, and has a positive stop at both of those positions. Any angle in between can be read off the scale and locked in. For rip cuts the guide fence can be situated on either side of the blade, can be locked into position with a single press of the lever and has a clear marker to set against the metric scale. The fence itself can be fitted in two ways. When cutting thicker material the full face height of 60mm is used. When cutting thin and narrow strips the fence is fitted with the small face, against the blade to allow clearance around the guides.
The band saw is fitted with an LED work light on a flexible stem, so that the work area will always be well lit.
The two doors are fitted with safety locks which cut power to the motor when the doors are open for blade changing or cleaning.
Tensioning the blade correctly is made simple thanks to the features on this premium model. A blade tension lever quickly sets the tension. After a blade change fine tuning can be carried out with the aid of a tension indicator and scale. The required tension varies according to blade width. A window in the top door allows the operator to confirm blade tension is correct and make an adjustment when necessary.
A(n external) dust extractor is always recommended when using a band saw. The dust collection outlet has 3 rings which allow it to accept 3 sizes of hose, 50mm, 75mm & 100mm diameter making it compatible with any type of extraction system. If extraction is not being used however, the band saw is fitted with an integral dust collection draw. Dust falling into the base of the machine will be collected here, allowing it to be quickly and easily emptied.
If you order an extra set of band saw blades with your order, you will never be without and you can easily get started.
