In Operation

The Charnwood W730 Bandsaw has a 14″ wide capacity with a 9″ cutting depth. The large cast iron tilting table is precision ground for a truly flat surface. The table angle can also be accurately set using a rack & pinion system. It has a stop to ensure the table returns to the 90 degree position. The steel frame also ensures the rigidity required for high blade tension and accurate ripping.

The bandsaw blade is also kept true and straight by a set of 3 large bearing guides mounted to the blade guard. Further another set of 3 further bearing guides are mounted below the table. Therefore Charnwood recommend that the best method for controlling the blade is to have the side bearings running against the side of the blade. Also the rear thrust bearing running against the back edge of the blade. This configuration is also very simple for the operator to set up and adjust when working with different sized bandsaw Blades.

The rise & fall of the blade guard can be adjusted and locked in position with one hand. Therefore ensuring the blade guide is set just above the timber. This is also essential for safety reasons and to give the best control over the blade resulting in a true and straight cut.

A simple adjustment of the drive belt lowers the blade speed for anyone wishing to cut metals, plastics and very hard woods.
