This is the Fox F28-182 Bandsaw Package deal comprising the F28-182 Bandsaw plus 2 additional blades.
The Fox F28-182 has been reintroduced into the Fox Bandsaw range from May 2017. It replaces the F28-182A. The principal difference between the 2 machines being:-
The F28-182 Can take wider blades up to 8mm
The F28-182 cutting capacity ht is 2mm greater on this machine
The machine is slightly bigger and weighs 0.5kg more at 16kg
The F28-182 is the entry model bench top bandsaw from Fox and is the ideal machine for the hobby user. It is compact and thus would also snuggly fit into a small or tight woodworking workshop. The F28-182A bandsaw comes with a unique height cutting capacity of 85mm and width capacity of 200mm and also features:-
• Pressed steel work bench which tilts to 45 degrees
• Induction motor for quiet operation
• Blade capacity from 3 to 8mm wide
It is important to think about what you need the bandsaw for. Most complaints we get are related to using a bandsaw for the wrong purpose or trying to cut beyond the saws capacity. Size, power of the motor are critical, you do get what you pay for when it comes to Bandsaws. Also sharp blades are essential!
Replacement band saw blades for both the F28-182 and F28-182A are 1400mm in length and we can supply these at competitive prices. The replacement blades we like to sell are British made to order, so flexibility in size and number of teeth is possible. Several of our customers use their F28/182/F28-182A bandsaw to cut non ferrous metal (fairly small sections) and we have supplied them with bandsaw blades with 14tpi. Remember the higher the number TPI ( teeth per inch) the finer the cut. 3/4 TPI used for general ripping, 6tpi general use and 8 and above for finer more accurate cutting. The thiner the blade (front to back) dimension, the greater the ability to cut shapes. the deeper the blade, the more accurate the straight cuts will be. The popular sizes are on the website, if you want something a little different call us and we will be able to help you.
