In searching deep in the jungle for a bandsaw that could meet every request we could make of a bandsaw, we stumbled across a tribe of woodworkers that worshipped a monster. An 8ft tall monster that could rip logs with ease, turn even the hardest of hardwoods to sawdust. Like King Kong, we captured the beast, crated it and it is now ready for a new life in the workshop of those worthy of such power.
In all honesty, this bandsaw is being added to the range after the owner of Timbecon who is a giant of a man discovered it when doing a factory tour of the manufacturer and there have been few machines so large, powerful, and awe-inspiring, that we had to bring the beast to Australian shores for those who want the biggest and the best.
This is an 18in Heavy Duty 2300W 3HP bandsaw that has a 407mm depth of cut capacity for resawing. It is the kind of machine that people do the Tim the Tool man grunt at.
This 220-volt single phase 3 hp bandsaw has a large 460mm throat depth and operates on two speeds. A patented blade guide system helps keep the blade perfectly aligned for precise cuts. A foot brake and quick-release blade system round out the running gear.
The Beast's vertical wood cutting band saw is built to last with its fully welded steel frame. The 510mm x 610mm all cast iron table has the ability to tilt to 45 degrees.
The BEAST also includes an integrated push stick that allows for safe resawing of large stock. This can be easily removed when not needed.
Blade tension is critical when you are working with a machine this big. The unit comes with an integrated pressure gauge that gives accurate and immediate bade tension information at all times.
Heavy-Duty High-Rise Fence Upgrade Kit
If you are going to go big then we have the ultimate upgrade for the BEAST for you to add to your purchase. We have customised our Heavy-Duty High-Rise Fence Upgrade Kit to fit the beast.
Sherwood makes some of the finest premium bandsaws in the world, so whenever they release a brand new bandsaw accessory our guys in the workshop tend to get a little excited, for good reason. But when they told us they were making a new-and-improved fence upgrade kit, we still didn't expect anything quite this flashy.
This bandsaw fence upgrade takes any standard bandsaw fence and turns into the megalodon, the mecca of all fences. It is a truly superb, tough-as-nails construction and design, making the price seem very affordable when you know what you're getting in return.
Why upgrade a bandsaw fence?
By increasing your bandsaw fence, you're adding extra support to the timber or other material that you're cutting. This not only improves the accuracy of your cut, but the stability, ease and safety as well.
The great aspect of the Sherwood upgrade kit, apart from its versatility, is the durability of its design. This is heavy-duty equipment built to match hardy, long-wearing conditions and use with precision engineering. This particular upgrade kit forms part of the Sherwood Heavy-Duty Bandsaw range.
