Axminster Engineer Series UV-180DS Bandsaw
Axminster Engineer Series
£1,699.93
This metal cutting bandsaw is designed for use in small fabrication and general engineering workshops. It has a swivelling head design which makes it easier to create accurate mitre cuts. Heavily built in cast iron to provide high strength and stability, it includes a floor stand with a built-in coolant system. The 750W 230V motor drives the blade through a direct drive variable speed system and is controlled by a convenient switch box mounted on the blade bow. An adjustable hydraulic damper controls the blade downfeed, with the machine being stopped automatically once the cut is completed. A selector switch allows hand control via a switch mounted on the bow, useful for starting or making delicate cuts. The variable speed drive gives a great flexibility of use over many materials and takes the effort out of changing speeds, making the blade last longer. The head and bow assembly swivels through 0° to 45° L and 0°-60°R with a scale and locking clamp. Cleverly, the vice slides across to give full material support for cutting precise angles. Coolant flow is controlled with a small valve mounted on the bow. This is a thoroughly well engineered machine that will suit many workshops, schools and colleges.
Axminster Engineer Series CT-502H Extractor
Axminster Engineer Series
£849.96
The CT-502H is a purpose-built extractor for metal dusts. It has a unique air flow system that separates out the dust from the airflow to allow the various weights of metal particles to fall into either the large primary collection bin or a smaller secondary bin. A powerful 1.125kW 230V 1ph motor creates up to 1,360 m³/hr airflow through a choice of either a 150mm inlet or a pair of 100mm inlets. The impeller fan is an aluminium casting with efficient curved blades. The aluminium impeller construction prevents impact sparking from metal particles.The machine is heavily built and is mounted on castors for easy mobility. A large grab handle is fitted to make this an easy task. The three stage filters are mounted inside a drop down door, also giving access to the secondary collection bin. The main collection bin is mounted on rollers and is easily accessed through a large door. This machine would be a perfect partner for a metal grinding or linishing machine, keeping your workshop and the operator clean. Heat resistant ducting hose is recommended, please see accessories. N.B. requires a 16A supply

Axminster Engineer Series M-360 Bench Pillar Drill
Axminster Engineer Series
£599.95
The M-360 is a very precise, small pillar drill best suited for small production batch work. It uses the ER16 collet system, which in turn uses collets with a closure of 1mm, so for example a 6mm collet will close down to 5mm. Collets have long been recognised as the most accurate tool holding system, so perfect concentricity is assured. The drill shank capacity is 0.5-6mm. The machine, although compact in size, is heavily built in cast iron. The column features a rack and pinion system to control the height of the headstock. The headstock itself has an exceptionally deep quill housing, ensuring accuracy even with the quill fully extended. There is a threaded depth stop, which can be locked to ensure a constant drilling depth. A 3-speed belt drive system is fitted, driven by a smooth running induction motor. The base has a work table surface machined into it with 14mm T-slots for work clamping. The drill is fitted with an interlocked chuck guard, LED work light and locking "E" stop switch. Please note, collets are not supplied; please choose from our selection.
