Record Power BS250 Wood Band Saw

With a cast iron table at the heart of this compact machine it is designed to offer those with limited space or budgets a real bandsaw with sensible capacity and performance, as an alternative to lightweight hobby machines.
This is the smallest machine in our range, but should not be confused with the lightweight hobby machines available in the market at a similar price. It shares the same essential build qualities as its larger cousins – strong steel frames, dynamically balanced bandwheels, cast iron tables and an induction motor. It has been designed to offer the user with space restrictions a serious machine in compact form. The machine can be bench mounted or fitted to the optional stand and wheel kit, providing great flexibility in a tight space.
  • Strong Tension System - Provides more than adequate tension for the blade capacities of this machine. Tension is easily set from the top of the machine, to adjust the dynamically balanced band wheels. The BS250 also features a microswitch for added safety, cutting off power if the doors are opened.
  • Blade Guides - The blade guides are easily adjustable and move on a lockable rack and pinion rise-and-fall system.
  • Sealed for Life Bearings - These require no maintenance for the life of the machine. The drive belt is situated beneath the lower band wheel and can be adjusted to the desired tension from the rear.
  • Impressive Capacity - Large 120mm depth of cut and 240mm throat depth make this a compact machine capable of serious work.
  • Strong Fence - With cam action lock for ease of use and simple tension adjustment for clamping strength.
  • Cast Iron Table - A solid, finely ground cast iron table provides an ideal and low friction work support.
  • Solid Trunnion - The table tilts from 0 - 45° on a solid trunnion with easy to read scale.
  • Switch - If power supply is cut this machine will not restart on its own when the power is restored.
  • Bandsaw Masterclass DVD Included - Presented by Alan Holtham, this indispensable DVD gives a thorough and comprehensive introduction to bandsaw use, setup, maintenance and blade choice.
  • Blade Speed: 740 M/minute
