    Powerful work horse

    The Sherwood 18in TB is a work horse. The 2250W motor provides all the power you need to complete a huge range of bandsawing tasks.

    Get deep ripping

    With its powerful motor, massive build, 406mm depth of cut and deep rip assist lever, the Sherwood 18in TB is all about deep ripping. This versatile bandsaw has all the mass and power you will probably ever need.

    5-Year warranty

    All Sherwood products feature a standard 5-Year limited warranty. No other bandsaw in its class is more supported than the Sherwood 18in TB.

    Ceramic blade guides

    Ceramic, heat-absorbing guide blocks are the new standard in bandsaw blade guides. They support the blade across its entire width allowing for more accurate cuts. Ceramic blade guides are durable, easy to set up and do not seize like many traditional blade guide setups. They are also the ideal guide setup for deep rip sawing.

    Performance and power

    For any machine to perform, the size of the motor must match the size of the machine. The amount of power generated by the Sherwood 2250W motor is perfectly balanced to the build of the Sherwood 18in TB. This results in balanced and effective performance, free of vibration. For you, this means your bandsaw can complete a huge range of challenging sawing tasks efficiently and accurately.

    Deep ripping

    Your Sherwood 18in TB offers a full 406mm depth of cut. Matched with the powerful 2250W motor, you can now complete deep rips and block work effortlessly.

    Cast iron wheels

    Cast wheels are heavier. And if the wheels are heavier, you will have more inertia. This is great when handling peak loads on the blade. In other words, the heavier wheels will help get you through the toughest of cuts.

    Sturdy rip fence

    The Sherwood 18in TB features a sturdy rip fence as standard. This fence features two T track slots and a quick-lock handle. The fence is also easily removed and stored to make full use of the whole worktable. Also available is the Sherwood HD High Rise Fence Upgrade Kit. To learn more about this great product see SKU SBSHDRF-1.

    Cast worktable with twin mitre slots

    Your cast iron worktable reduces vibration and allows you to use magnetic accessories. The twin mitre slots are a full size at 19 x 9.5mm. Perfect for using the included cast mitre slide, a cross-cut sled or installing feather boards and other accessories.

    Deep rip assist lever

    What to deep rip in safety? The 18in TB features a deep rip assist lever. As you reach the end of your deep cut, simply pull the lever and push the remainder of the material through the blade hands free.

    Twin dust ports

    The Sherwood 18in TB features two 102mm dust ports. One is located at the base of the machine, the other just below the worktable and lower blade guides. This keeps both the guts of your bandsaw and the floor of your workshop dust free.

    Safety foot brake

    The Sherwood 18in TB features a super convenient safety foot brake. Simply compress and the foot brake not only brings the machine to a dead stop - it also kills the motor instantly. Great if you get into trouble or if you need to answer the phone.

    Durable build

    All the components, knobs and fittings are built tough. This ensures your bandsaw won’t fall apart with time. Backed with your 5-year warranty, you are set for a long relationship with the Sherwood 18in TB.
