The AT2552B bandsaw, with its high specification and modest price, is a very popular sized machine for the trade or home workshop.
The combination of a rigidly built steel body, large and finely ground cast iron table, deep section rip fence and micro adjustable ball bearing blade guides produces the high level of performance demanded by both trade and amateur craftsmen. The rip fence runs on a calibrated aluminium extrusion and is locked firmly in place with a lever, giving a solid and accurate location. The adjustable precision mitre fence is T-slotted into the table for added safety and accuracy. The table tilt quadrants are set very widely apart to give the maximum support to the table and to make the tilt action very smooth. Cutting depth is controlled by a well engineered rack and pinion system, with a lock to set the guides into position.
At the rear of the machine are the blade tracking control, the blade tension indicator and a quick action blade tension lever, useful for both blade changing and for releasing the tension on the blade when the machine is not in use. The powerful induction motor transmits its power via a multi-groove flat belt, ensuring smooth running and zero slip. Safety features include interlocked and micro-switched doors and an emergency stop switch.
Beautifully made and sure to please. Supplied with floor stand, rip fence, mitre fence and a 6tpi bandsaw blade.
