This bandsaw has been designed as a woodcutting bandsaw with the capability of occasional metal cutting, or vice versa. The VBS18MW is capable of cutting all timbers, or small section ferrous and non-ferrous metals (using the correct blade). A two speed gearbox lets you choose the ideal cutting speeds for wood or metal, the three belts speeds giving 250, 450 or 820m/min(wood cutting) or 20, 40 or 70m/min (metal cutting). Adjustment for the most suitable speed for efficient cutting is straight forward. The bandsaw is supplied with two chip trays for the separate collection of metal cutting swarf. A large hand wheel and rack system allows simple adjustment of the cutting height and there is an easy to read built-in cutting height scale. The blade is well supported above and below the table by ball bearing guides. A viewing window is provided for easy blade tracking control, the blade runs on balanced cast iron wheels with crowned, long-life PU tyres. The generous cast iron table tilts from -10°to + 45°, and is very well supported on widely spaced trunnions. This bandsaw functions just as well as the other JET bandsaws for wood cutting, but can also cut metal, so could be the perfect machine for large craft or multi discipline workshops. Standard equipment includes: NVR switch, 20mm bandsaw blade, 2 chip trays, rip fence and mitre fence for wood cutting, and crosscut vice for metal cutting. N.B 16 amp supply will be required.
