Axminster Trade Series BS11 Bandsaw
Axminster Trade Series
£1,049.95
This benchtop bandsaw is made to exacting standards to encompass all the features found on top quality floor standing machines. Designed in house, we set out to create a bandsaw with many unique features. The one piece frame is made from heavy gauge welded steel and is extremely rigid to withstand high blade tensions. A cast iron deep section table is fitted, featuring a ground table surface and a rack and pinion tilt mechanism with indexing stops for common angles. The heavy gauge alloy rip fence is mounted on a cast alloy bracket which also incorporates a fine width adjustment. The fence is clamped with a cam action lever, easily released to allow swift adjustment. Blade guides are all ball bearing with micro adjustment for accurate control. The top guide is mounted on a steel hexagon bar for stiffness and adjusted for height by a small rack and pinion system. A pair of cast iron band wheels, nicely machined and balanced are driven by a multi V belt with a choice of two speeds. The BS11 features a 750W fixed speed induction motor, great for cutting all types of wood. Supplied with a 1/2" x 6tpi bandsaw blade.

The top guide is mounted on a steel hexagon bar for stiffness and adjusted for height by a small rack and pinion system. A pair of cast iron band wheels, nicely machined and balanced are driven by a multi V belt with a choice of two ratios. The 750W induction motor features an inverter drive to control the motor speed. This gives a speed across the range of 42-1001 m/min. By using the lower belt speed and reducing the motor speed, this machine can be used for cutting some types of metal, for example by using a fine pitch M42 blade this bandsaw will handle mild steel plate from 2 to 10mm thick. Thinner or harder materials cannot be cut in volume on this bandsaw. This model is a true all round machine, suitable for many projects using all kinds of materials.

Axminster Trade AT535SS Scroll Saw
Axminster Trade
£699.96
This 535mm(21") scroll saw is the mid sized model from a range of three with some really different features not found on any other machine. It is constructed mainly from plate steel including a 7mm heavy gauge steel table with an epoxy painted surface. Two unique features make this machine stand out from any other. Firstly, the blade actuating arms are very short, driven by a lever and rod mechanism. This gives very high control of the blade plus exceptionally low vibration. Secondly, the whole arm assembly tilts 45° from the vertical right and 35° left, leaving the table horizontal. This allows much better control of the work, due to greater visibility and being able to work at a natural position. You are not fighting gravity or bending your wrists into awkward positions. This machine is not short of other features, having a variable speed control system giving from 400-1,500 strokes per minute. Upgraded with the PEGAS "Blade Chuck" blade clamps which are much lighter, reducing vibration which reduces stress on the machine. Blade changing is easy and tool free, with two hand clamps and a quick release lever. An air blower and work hold down are provided. Plus there is efficient dust collection when connected to a suitable fine dust extractor. You are recommended to permanently mount the machine onto your workbench or to one of the dedicated stands available as an option. Using unpinned blades means there is a large selection of blades available or you can use 150mm lengths of 1/4" bandsaw blade, ideal for cutting thicker materials. Supplied with an assortment pack of Swiss made PEGAS blades. This is a serious machine for craft or joinery work, not the same as any other. This machine was previously known as the EX-21.

Axminster Evolution Series CBN Wheel 200 x 40mm - 180g
Axminster Evolution Series
£109.96
This CBN wheel is 200mm diameter with a 40mm wide face; the 180 grit coating produces sharp edges on HSS tools. Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN) is a ceramic abrasive second only to diamond in hardness. Electroplating this abrasive onto the rim of a solid steel wheel creates a grinding wheel with outstanding performance. The wheels are factory balanced ensuring they run ultra smoothly when fitted to a suitable bench grinder. CBN wheels are at their best when grinding HSS steels as well as powdered metal and hardened carbon steels. This makes them invaluable for maintaining the edges of woodturning tools and other hand tools. Whether it is bevel edge chisels, screwdrivers or drill bits, CBN is the best material for grinding hardened steels. Attempting to grind unhardened steel or soft metal such as aluminium or copper etc is detrimental to performance and results in a clogged wheel. These wheels do not require coolant, as they generate hardly any heat. It is practically impossible to burn or blue a tool unless the user is particularly heavy-handed. It needs very little pressure to sharpen a tool; generally, the weight of the tool alone is sufficient. The face of the wheel will never need dressing; it will always remain flat and run true. These outstanding wheels have an almost indefinite life if treated with respect. Since they cut very efficiently, you only remove a minimum of steel to get a fine and evenly sharp cutting edge, meaning your turning tools last longer. You only purchase a CBN wheel once, making it an excellent investment. Please note, for Axminster Trade 200mm Grinders, please use 103913 or 103915 wheels, plus 104371 adaptors.
