  • Cast Iron Wheels

  • 16″ Width Cutting Capacity
  • Blade Tension Indicator
  • 3hp Induction Motor with Brake
  • Wheel Kit Included

16″ diameter cast iron balanced wheels and a powerful 3hp mechanically braked, induction motor give this bandsaw serious cutting capacities ideal for a production workshop or ambitious woodturner. The angle of the heavy cast iron table is adjusted by a handle at the rear and the work is guided by using either the quick lock rip fence, with a scale in both metric and imperial, or a well made sliding mitre fence for crosscutting. Setting the bandsaw blade tension correctly is made simple with the addition of a quick release lever and a tension indicator. A wheel kit gives the user complete freedom to move the bandsaw around the workshop.

The Charnwood W740 woodworking bandsaw comes supplied with rip fence with micro adjuster, a cast metal sliding mitre guide and fence adjustable 60 degrees each way with preset stops, 25mm woodcutting blade, 2 x 100mm diameter extraction outlets, wheel kit and 2.5m power cable with UK 3 pin plug.

Runs on a standard 13 amp electric supply.
