Kalamazoo Machine Tool’s Model H275 manual band saw is said to accurately cut tubes, pipes, light structural shapes and small solids ranging to 10" at 90 degrees. The variable-speed blade ranges from 65 to 320 fpm, and can accurately miter as much as 60 degrees to the right. The saw’s heavy-duty construction, carbide saw guides and rigid guide supports ensure accurate, straight cuts, the company says.
The Model H275 band saw features a 2-hp TEFC motor coupled directly to the worm gear drive for smooth power transmission to the saw blade. Operations include manual saw frame raise, manual vise and hydraulic/solenoid-powered downfeed. Status indicators include "power on," "correct blade tension," "broken blade" and "band wheel cover open." The band saw also features 24-V controls, a bimetal blade with shutoff for broken blade or low tension conditions, a blade drive load monitor and a full coolant system.
