The AC2606B is the largest, most powerful model within our Craft bandsaw range, designed for home woodturners and serious home woodworkers. This bandsaw has a welded steel chassis with great strength designed within it in the form of extra stiffening and bracing. It has a very generously sized, cast iron table with a 19mm mitre fence slot. The cast iron table mounting trunnions are extra widely spaced, giving a high degree of table support, but also ensuring that the table tilt really is smooth in operation. The rip fence cam locks solidly to the front rail and is adjustable to the blade for accuracy. Twin scales allow the fence to be used either side of the blade.
Unusually for a bandsaw of this size it has large ceramic side and thrust blade guides, these give great blade support for increased accuracy and are almost impossible to wear out. Once set, they stay set unless you change the width of the blade. A rack and pinion system provides easy adjustment of the upper blade guide height.
The dust extraction is interconnected via two ports, one close to the bottom guides, the other in the lower wheel cabinet. The simplicity of this means that just one 100mm connection port needs coupling to a suitable chip extractor. There are twin blade speeds, giving you the right speed for any task. A powerful alloy bodied induction motor drives the bandsaw through a multi V belt and is quiet and reliable.
Supplied with a splayed leg steel stand with rubber feet and a UK made general purpose blade. There is a whole range of different blades available to suit any task.
With its big capacities and power to match, this bandsaw is great for creating large bowl blanks or for general sizing of timber.
