iTECH have long been associated with trade machines that offer genuine class leading quality, offering reliable service for many years. This new heavy duty range bandsaws draw on the tradition and are exceptional value for money. [Previously a version of this saw was the Startrite 403.]
The BS400 has the heaviest cast iron disc wheels in class, a large cast iron table, a heavy double trunnion with rack adjustment, making it easy to set a precise angle: smooth and accurate movement and also provides a rock solid table support over the full range of table positions.
The great feature of this bandsaw is the heavy duty cast iron disc band wheels [not spoked] which have great mass and cutting power. The wheels are balanced and fitted with high quality tyres, giving more practical cutting power, needed when making deep cuts. The top wheel is mounted to a heavy duty industrial tensioning system. [tensioning is critical for an accurate, straight cut. The system fitted to this machine is probably the heaviest on the market at this level.
The blade guide post is also mounted with a heavy rack to enable easy adjustment of the upper guide and guard. The side guides use industrial ball race guides which offer a good surface area to resist blade twist, and easy adjustment for simple setting.
The rip fence is fixed to cast iron mounts which are mounted on steel bar that runs the width of the table to allow easy use of the fences on both sides of the blade.
