In The Shed: HAFCO Metalmaster VB-300 Metal Cutting Vertical Band Saw
Ideal for ferrous or non-ferrous materials, the HAFCO Metalmaster VB-300 Metal Cutting Vertical Band Saw (Order Code: B010A) is a high-quality, high-performance piece of machinery.
Propelled by a 0.37kW (0.5Hp) / 240V motor, cutting speeds are variable between 20 and 90 metres per minute, and adjusted via a hand wheel.
Likewise, blade tensioning is also adjustable by means of a hand wheel. The 2510mm-long blade stays straight and true thanks to Tungsten-tipped adjustable guides top and bottom.
An air blower clears away swarf from the blade, while a built-in brush cleans the wheel and keeps it tracking smoothly by removing swarf.
Conveniently fitted to the machine’s front is a blade butt welder unit with 3 – 13mm capacity, as well as an annealing device, blade shears and grinder.
The 225kg band saw boasts a robust steel frame with 310 x 175mm (width/throat x height) rectangular capacity. A 500 x 400mm cast iron table tilts ±15º in all four directions and can be illuminated by a flexible work light.
Manufactured in Taiwan to exacting standards, the HAFCO Metalmaster VB-300 Metal Cutting Vertical Band Saw is ideal for the serious metalworker.
