General Health & Safety Guidance
Ensure that you carefully read and fully understand the
instructions in this manual before assembly, installation and
use of this product. Keep these instructions in a safe place for
future reference.
•If the machine is suitable to be used on a workbench, ensure that the
workbench is well constructed and capable of withstanding the weight
of the machine. The machine should always be securely fastened to the
workbench with appropriate fixings.
WARNING: for your own safety, do not attempt to operate this machine
until it is completely assembled and installed according to
these instructions.
•Where possible, floor standing machines should always be secured to the
floor with fixings appropriate to the structure of the floor.
WARNING: When using any machine, basic safety precautions should
always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and
personal injury.
Safe Operation
1. Use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
•The operation of any machine can result in foreign objects being thrown
into your eyes, which can result in severe eye damage. Protective
eyewear or other suitable eye protection or face shield should be used at
all times. Everyday spectacles only have impact resistant lenses. They are
not protective eyewear and do not give additional lateral protection.
•Use respiratory protective equipment (dust mask etc.) if the machining
operation creates dust. Exposure to high levels of dust created by
machining hardwoods, softwoods and man made composite boards can
result in serious health problems. Some imported hardwoods give off
highly irritating dust, which can cause a burning sensation. The use of
respiratory protective equipment should not be seen as an alternative to
controlling the risk of exposure at source by using adequate dust
extraction equipment.
•The use of ear plugs or ear defenders is recommended when the machine
is in use, particularly if the noise level exceeds 85 dB.
•Wear suitable protective gloves when handling cutting tools or blades.
Gloves should NOT be worn when using the machine as they can be
caught in moving parts of the machine.
•Non-slip safety footwear is recommended when using the machine and
handling large work pieces.
2. Dress appropriately
•Do not wear loose clothing, neckties or jewellery; they can be caught in
moving parts of the machine.
• Roll up long sleeves above the elbow.
• Wear protective hair covering to contain long hair.
3. Safety warnings
• Find and read any warning labels on the machine.
•It is important that any labels bearing health and safety warnings are
not removed, defaced or covered. Replacement labels can be obtained by
contacting our Customer Service Department.
4. Familiarise yourself with the machine
•If you are not thoroughly familiar with the operation of this machine,
obtain advice from your supervisor, instructor, or other qualified person or
contact your retailer for information on training courses. Do not use this
machine until adequate training has been undertaken.
5. Take care when moving or positioning the machine
•Some machines can be very heavy. Ensure the floor of the area in which
the machine is to be used is capable of supporting the machine.
•The machine and its various components can be heavy.
Always adopt a safe lifting technique and seek assistance when lifting
heavy components. In some cases it may be necessary to use mechanical
handling equipment to position the machine within the work area.
•Some machines have optional wheel kits available to allow them to be
manoeuvred around the workshop as required. Care should be taken to
install these according to the instructions provided.
•Due to the nature of the design of some machines the centre of gravity
will be high making them unstable when moved. Extreme care should be
taken when moving any machine.
6. The machine should be level and stable at all times
•When using a leg stand or cabinet base that is designed to be fitted to
the machine, always ensure that it is securely fastened to the machine
using the fixings provided.
4
•The floor surface should be sound and level. All of the feet of the
machine should make contact with the floor surface. If they do not, either
re-locate the machine to a more suitable position or use packing shims
between the feet and the floor surface to ensure the machine is stable.
7. Remove adjusting keys and wrenches
•Ensure that all adjusting wrenches and keys are removed before
switching the machine ‘ON’. There is a risk of severe personal injury or
damage to the machine from airborne objects.
8. Before switching the machine ‘ON’
• Clear the machine table of all objects (tools, scrap pieces etc.)
•Make sure there is no debris between the work piece and the
table / work support.
•Ensure that the work piece is not pressed against, or touching the saw
blade or cutting tool.
•Check all clamps, work holding devices and fences to ensure that they
are secure and cannot move during machining operations.
•Plan the way that you will hold and feed the work piece for the entire
machining operation.
9. Whilst machining
•Before starting work, watch the machine while it runs. If it makes
an unfamiliar noise or vibrates excessively, switch the machine ‘OFF’
immediately and disconnect it from the power supply. Do not restart until
finding and correcting the source of the problem.
10. Keep the work area clear
•Working clearances can be thought of as the distances between
machines and obstacles that allow safe operation of every machine
without limitation. Consider existing and anticipated machine needs,
size of material to be processed through each machine and space for
auxiliary stands and/or work tables. Also consider the relative position of
each machine to one another for efficient material handling. Be sure to
allow yourself sufficient room to safely operate your machines in any
foreseeable operation.
•Cluttered work areas and benches create the risk of accidents. Keep
benches clear and tidy away tools that are not in use.
•Ensure that the floor area is kept clean and clear of any dust and debris
that may create trip or slip hazards.
11. Consider the work area environment
• Do not expose the machine to rain or damp conditions.
•Keep the work area well lit and ensure that there is artificial lighting
available when there is insufficient natural light to effectively light the
work area. Lighting should be bright enough to eliminate shadow and
prevent eye strain.
•Do not use the machine in explosive environments eg. in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases or dust.
•The presence of high levels of dust created by machining wood can
present a risk of fire or explosion. Always use dust extraction equipment
to minimise the risk.
12. Keep other persons away (and pets)
• The machine is designed to be used by one person only.
•Do not let persons, especially children, touch the machine or extension
cable (if used) and keep visitors away from the work area.
•Never leave the machine running unattended. Turn the power supply off
and do not leave the machine unattended until it comes to a
complete stop.
•If the work area is to be left unattended, all machinery should be
switched ‘OFF’ and isolated from the mains power supply.
13. Store machines safely when not in use
•When not in use, machines should be stored in a dry place, out of reach
General Health & Safety Guidance - cont.
of children. Do not allow persons unfamiliar with these instructions or
with the machine to operate it.
14. Do not overreach
•Choose a working position that allows your body to remain balanced
and feed the work piece in to the machine without overreaching.
• Keep proper footing and balance at all times.
15. Electrical supply
•Electrical circuits should be dedicated to each machine or large enough
to handle combined motor amp loads. Power outlets should be located
near each machine so that power or extension cables are not obstructing
high-traffic areas. Observe local electrical guidelines for proper
installation of new lighting, power outlets, or circuits.
• The machine must be connected to an earthed power supply.
•The power supply must be equipped with a circuit breaker that provides
short circuit, overload and earth leakage protection.
•The voltage of the machine must correspond to the voltage of the mains
power supply.
•The mains plug fitted to the machine should always match the power
outlet. Do not modify the plug in any way. If a replacement plug is
required it should be fitted by a competent person and of the correct
type and rating for the machine.
•If you are unsure about any electrical connections always consult a
qualified electrician.
16. Avoid unintentional starting of the machine
•Most machines are fitted with a no-volt release (NVR) switch to prevent
unintentional starting. If in doubt always ensure the machine switch
is in the ‘OFF’ position before connecting it to the power supply. This
means the machine will not automatically start up after a power cut or
switching on of the power supply, unless you first reset the start switch.
17. Outdoor use
• Your machine should not be used outdoors.
18. Extension cables
•Whenever possible, the use of extension cables is not recommended.
If the use of an extension cable is unavoidable, then it should have
a minimum core cross section of 2.5 mm² and limited to a maximum
length of 3 metres.
•Extension cables should be routed away from the direct working area to
prevent a trip hazard.
19. Guard against electric shock
•Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces such as pipes
and radiators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
20. Always work within the machine’s intended capacities
•Operator safety and machine performance are seriously adversely
affected if attempts to make the machine perform beyond its limits
are made.
•When feeding the work piece towards the blade or cutting tool never
position your hands in direct line of the cutting path. Avoid awkward
operations and hand positions where a sudden slip could cause your
hand or fingers to move into the machining area.
23. Stay alert
•Safety is a combination of operator common sense and alertness at all
times when the machine is being used.
•Use all machines with extreme care and do not use the machine when
you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication.
24. Use the correct tool for the job
•Do not use the machine for any purpose other than which it
was designed.
•When selecting replacement cutting tools and blades, always ensure that
they are designed to cut the material that you intend to use them for. If
in any doubt seek further advice from the manufacturer.
25. Connect dust extraction equipment
•Always use dust extraction equipment. The dust extractor should be of
suitable size and capacity for the machine that it is connected to and
have a filtration level appropriate to the type of waste being collected.
Refer to the relevant section of the manual for details of the specific dust
extraction requirements for this machine.
•The dust extractor should be switched ‘ON’ before starting the machine
that it is connected to. The dust extractor should be left running for 30
seconds after the last machining operation is complete in order to clear
any residual waste from the machine.
26. Ensure that the machine is correctly guarded
•Never use the machine if any of the standard safety guards and
equipment are removed or damaged.
•Some machines incorporate safety interlocks to prevent the machine
from being used without the guards in place. Never attempt to bypass
or modify the interlocks to allow the machine to be used without the
guards in place.
27. Maintain your machine with care
•This manual gives clear instructions on installation, set up and
operation of the machine and also details any routine and preventative
maintenance that should be performed periodically by the user.
•Remember always to switch off and unplug the machine from the power
supply before carrying out any setting up or maintenance operations.
•Follow any instructions for the maintenance of accessories
and consumables.
•Do not use compressed air to clean the machine. Always use a brush to
dislodge dust in places that are awkward to reach and a dust extractor
to collect the waste.
•Inspect electric cables periodically and, if damaged, have them replaced
by an authorised service facility or qualified electrician.
•Inspect extension cables (if used) periodically and replace if damaged.
21. Do not abuse the power cable
•Never pull the power cable to disconnect it from the power socket.
Always use the plug.
28. Keep cutting tools sharp and clean
•Correctly maintained cutting tools are easier to control and less likely
to bind.
• Keep the power cable away from heat, oil and sharp edges.
•Cutting tools and blades can become hot during use. Take extreme care
when handling them and always allow them to cool before changing,
adjusting or sharpening them.
• Do not use the power cable for carrying or moving the machine.
22. Secure the work piece
•Ensure that the work piece is securely held before starting to machine it.
•When working within 300 mm of the machining area, always use a push
stick to feed the work piece in to the blade or cutting tool. The push stick
should have a minimum length of 400 mm. If the push stick becomes
damaged, replace it immediately.
•Use extra supports (roller support stands etc.) for any work pieces large
enough to tip when not held down to the table top.
•Do not use another person as a substitute for a table extension, or as
additional support for a work piece that is longer or wider than the basic
table, or to help feed, support, or pull the work piece.
29. Disconnect the machine from the power supply
•When not in use, before servicing, changing blades etc. always
disconnect the machine from the power supply.
30. Check for damaged parts
•Before each use of the machine, it should be carefully checked to
determine that it will operate properly and perform its
intended function.
•Check for alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts, breakage
of parts and any other conditions that may affect the operation of
the machine.
• Do not attempt to machine more than one work piece at a time.

Additional Health & Safety for Bandsaws
Safe Operation
1. Familiarise yourself with the machine
• Machining operations using bandsaws have a history of serious accidents.
Most result from contact with the moving blade while presenting material
to the blade or moving it from the table. Other minor accidents can occur
whilst setting, cleaning, adjusting or maintaining the machine.
• The machine is designed for cutting wood and composite board (plywood,
MDF etc.). Certain plastics can also be cut using a suitable blade.
2. Before switching the machine ‘ON’
• Ensure that the blade is correctly tensioned and aligned on the band
wheels and the blade guides are correctly adjusted.
• Ensure that the teeth of the blade are pointing downwards.
• Check the condition of the blade to ensure that no teeth are missing,
damaged or deformed and the blade is not cracked or split. If any of
these conditions apply, replace the blade immediately.
• Ensure that the saw blade type and width are suitable for the material to
be cut.
• Check that the blade width is within the minimum and maximum
permitted on the machine and that the thickness of the blade is suitable
for the diameter of the wheel.
• Some machines have more than one cutting speed. For most wood
cutting applications the faster of the speeds should be used.
• Check the condition of the table insert. Replace it immediately if it is
damaged or showing signs of wear.
• Adjust the guard as close as possible to the work piece being cut.
• Check that access doors are fully closed and that the latches are secure.
6
3. Whilst machining
• Never apply sideways pressure to the blade as this may cause the blade
to break.
• Care must be taken when cutting wood with knots, nails or cracks in
it and / or dirt on it, as these can cause the blade to get stuck. If this
happens, switch the machine ‘OFF’ immediately and follow the procedure
detailed in the manual to remove the blade from the work piece.
•If cutting cylindrical timber use a suitable jig to prevent twisting of the
work piece.
4. This machine falls under the scope of the ‘Health & Safety at Work etc.
Act 1974’, and the ‘Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998’.
In addition the elimination or control of risks from wood dust is included in
the above regulations and the ‘Control of Substances Hazardous to Health
(COSHH) Regulations 2002’. We recommend that you study and follow

5.1 Setting the table stop at 90º to saw Blade
Tools Required:- Small 90º square (Not supplied)
The table can be set at 90º to the Bandsaw Blade (See Fig.5.1) by
adjusting the table stop screw (See Fig.5.2) underneath the table.
• First offer the square up to the blade to give an indication of adjustment
required.
• If the table is not at 90º to the blade use table tilting mechanism (See
5.3) to adjust the table until it is 90º to the blade. If the table stop screw
position is too high it may be necessary to wind this down out of the way
so 90º can be achieved (See Fig.5.2).
• Once the table is at 90º to the blade lock off the lock handle on the
table tilt mechanism to secure the table position (See Fig.5.3).
• Now set the table stop screw (See Fig.5.2), the table stop screw
should be adjusted so that the head of the screw makes contact with the
top surface of the lower band wheel housing. Once the stop screw is set
to the correct length, it is secured by tightening the lock nut up to the flat
registration point on the underside of the table.
5.2 Adjusting the table tilt scale
Once the table is set at 90º to the bandsaw blade it may be necessary
to adjust the angle pointer on the angle scale so any further angles are
accurate. To do this use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen the pan head screw
and adjust the pointer to 0º (See Fig.5.3).
5.3 Tilting the table
To tilt the table, loosen the lock handle on the table trunnion. Turn the
table tilting knob to adjust the table angle (See Fig.5.3). Use the angle
indicator scale on the trunnion bracket to find the desired angle. Re-tighten
the lock handle to secure the table.

6.1 Tensioning the blade
The blade tensioning knob should be used to increase or decrease tension
(See Fig. 6.1). The only truly accurate way to check a blade is with a
tension meter. These are very expensive so most users may need another
method. The blade tension indicator, which is located on the back side of
the top housing of the bandsaw, should be used first as a guide to the
correct tension. We then suggest testing the tension by the amount the
blade will deflect sideways. First set the guides to 6 inches above the
table, making sure the saw is turned off push the blade sideways with a
reasonable amount of pressure using the push stick. A correctly tensioned
blade should not move more than a 1/4" sideways (See Fig. 6.2A).
If the blade is over tightened, as in Fig. 6.2B, the blade could be damaged.
BLADE TENSION INDICATOR
Fig.6.2
A
B
3
However perhaps the most tried and tested way of blade tensioning is
simply: If the bandsaw is cutting accurately then the blade is tensioned
correctly, if the blade tends to wander and an accurate cut cannot be
achieved then the blade tension needs adjusting.
7
If the machine is to stand idle for a period it is good practice to slacken
tension and re-tension when next using.
6.2 Tracking the Bandsaw blade
Isolate the machine from the supply by unplugging the mains plug. Set the
tracking of the blade before setting the blade guides. Once the blade is
tensioned, track the blade by turning the upper band wheel by hand and
adjusting the tracking knob (See Fig.6.3). When viewed from the back
of the machine turning the tracking knob clockwise the blade will move
towards the back of the band wheel, by turning the tracking knob anticlockwise the blade will move to the front of the band wheel. The blade
should run as close to the centre of the band wheel as possible, as shown
(See Fig.6.4). On narrow blades (e.g 1/4" and 3/8") it may be necessary
to run the blade to rear of the band wheel. After the blade is tracked in
the desired position on the band wheel, rotate the band wheel several
more times by hand without any further adjustment ensuring that the
blade remains in the same position. Once this has been achieved lock the
tracking knob with the winged nut (See Fig.6.3).
It takes a few revolutions of the band wheel for the effect of adjustment on
the tracking knob to become apparent. To avoid over-adjusting, make small
gradual adjustments on the tracking knob and revolve the band wheel
a few times to check the alignment of the blade before making further
adjustments. The machine should then be run for a few seconds before any
adjustment of guides is carried out.

6.3 Adjusting the Upper Guides
First check that all of the roller guides are moving freely. To adjust the
upper blade guides, first position the guide assembly relative to the
blade, by slackening off the hex screw (Fig.6.5, A) and moving the guide
carrier until the roller guides are just behind the gullets of the blade (See
Fig.6.7). Next set the roller guides as near as possible to the blade without
actually touching. This is done by unlocking the locking nut on each side of
the guide adjustment (See Fig.6.5). Do not let the roller guides actually
touch the blade as this will adversely affect the life of the blade. Finally
adjust the rear blade support roller to be just clear of the back of the blade
(See Fig.6.7). Do this by unlocking the hex socket screw (Fig.6.6B). When
the correct adjustment is reached, lock the blade support roller in position
with a hex key (Fig.6.6B).

behind the gullets of the blade. Next set the roller guides as near as
possible to the blade without actually touching. This is done by releasing
the hex head socket screw (See Fig.6.9B) on each side of the blade.
Finally adjust the rear thrust bearing to be just clear of the back of the
blade (See Fig.6.10). To do this first unlock the Hex socket screw (See
Fig.6.9C) then using the adjustment knob at the rear, position the thrust
bearing Fig.6.10.

6.5 Adjusting the cutting height
Once the blade is set, the cutting height must be adjusted so there
is maximum guarding for the blade and so that the blade guides are
providing optimum support to the blade.
To adjust the cutting height loosen the rise and fall lock knob and turn the
rise and fall handwheel to raise or lower the guide post/upper blade guide
assembly to the desired height Fig.6.12. Note: The upper blade guide
should provide approximately 5 mm clearance above the workpiece. After
the desired position has been set tighten the rise and fall lock knob.
Always re-check the upper guides once the desired height is set for any
slight adjustment required.

7.1 Adjusting the drive belt tension
Use the belt tensioning handle (See Fig.7.1) to adjust the tension of the
drive belt. Rotate the handle anti-clockwise to increase the tension and
clockwise to decrease tension. As a guide the belt is adequately tensioned
when using the index finger to impart reasonable pressure on the belt the belt should not deflect more than 1/4”. But like tensioning a bandsaw
blade, this is very subjective and the best test is in operation, if the belt
isn’t slipping or wearing excessively and there is adequate power being
applied to the band wheels then the drive belt is tensioned correctly.
Kg
BELT TENSIONING HANDLE

After any adjustment of the belt ensure the poly vees are
correctly located in the vee slots as failure to do so could
damage the belt in use.
7.2 Changingithe Blade Speed
The BS300E has two blade speeds 820 m/min for wood and 380 m/min for
some plastics and acrylics. This machine is not suitable for cutting metals.
Fig.7.3
The lower band wheel has two integral multi vee form pulleys and the
motor shaft has a twin multi vee form pulley.
The vee belt passes around the band wheel pulley, the motor pulley and
the plain tension roller. The belt tension is released and applied by using
the crank handle, this moves the tension roller and allows the speed to be
changed (See Fig.7.1).
High Speed 820 m/min
Before changing the speed always make sure the machine has been
isolated from the mains supply. For the high speed the belt should be fitted
to the rear pulley on both the motor and band wheel. (See Fig.7.2).
Lower Speed 380 m/min
Before changing the speed always make sure the machine has been
isolated from the mains supply. For the low speed the belt should be fitted
to the front pulley on both the motor and band wheel (See Fig.7.3).

8. Operation & Bandsawing Practice
Basic Bandsawing Principles
• The blade cuts on a continuous down stroke.
• Slowly feed the workpiece towards the blade, using only light pressure
whilst letting the blade do the cutting. Always use a push stick and take
care.
• Firmly hold the workpiece and feed it towards the blade slowly, using the
push stick and keeping your hands well away from the blade.
• For best results the blade must be sharp. Damaged or worn blades should
always be replaced.
• Select the correct blade for the job, depending on the thickness of the
wood and the cut to be made (see blade selection).
• For straight cutting use the rip fence supplied.
• When cutting shapes, follow the design marked out by pushing and
turning the workpiece evenly. Do not attempt to turn the workpiece
without pushing it, as this may cause the workpiece to get stuck, or the
blade to bend.
CAUTION! Particular care should be taken towards the end of the cut as
there will be a sudden decrease in resistance and care must be taken to
stop hands from being thrown towards the blade. Always use a push stick.
i
Kg
Restarting
In the Event of a Blockage or if the Machine Stalls
If the bandsaw stalls due to the blade becoming trapped in the work piece,
switch it off immediately by pressing the emergency stop button and wait
for the machine to come to a complete stop before proceeding further.
If the blade is trapped within the work piece, it may be necessary to prize
the work piece apart slightly using a suitable lever in order to free the
blade. If it is not possible to free the blade using this method, then it may
be necessary to cut the blade using suitable side cutters or tin snips.
Replace the blade if necessary and ensure that it is correctly tracked and
tensioned and that both doors of the bandsaw are fully closed and secured
before attempting to re-start the machine.
To re-start the machine, press the green button marked ‘I’ on the switch.
In the Event of a Power Failure
The bandsaw is fitted with a no volt release (NVR) switch to protect the
user against automatic starting of the machine when power is restored
after a power failure.
In the event of a power failure, first locate and rectify the source of the
failure. If the fault is within the power circuit of the workshop, there may
be an underlying cause (circuit overload etc.) that should be investigated
by a qualified electrician, before attempting to restore the power source.
If a cutting operation was taking place when the power supply was
interrupted, then it may be necessary to free the blade from the work piece
before attempting to re-start the machine.
Once the power is restored, the machine can be re-started by pressing the
green button marked ‘I’ on the switch.
Always ensure that your machine is properly maintained and clean. Before
commencing work on an important project, it is advisable to familiarise
yourself with the operation of the equipment by practising on low value or
scrap materials.
Blade Selection (TPI)
Complicated Cutting
• Correct blade choice is primarily dependant on two factors: material
thickness and material type.
Very complicated cuts and small radius curves are the best accomplished
with the aid of pre-drilled holes combined with a few tangential or radial
cuts. This technique will achieve excellent results without putting undue
tension on the blade and blade guide assembly.
The selection of the best blade configuration (see the table below) is
necessary for optimum cutting performance.
• Greater TPI should be selected as material thickness decreases.
• However, if the TPI is too great, the tooth loading will be insufficient
to enable penetration; and cutting. The teeth will also rapidly lose their
sharpness.
• For thicker material a lower TPI should be used otherwise the gullet will
not be sufficient to clear the waste and the blade will stall or burn the
wood.
WARNING! In circumstances such as cutting deep or wet timber,
the work piece may close up behind the blade causing it to stall. In
the event that the blade stalls whilst cutting, ease the work piece
backwards slightly, to release
feed pressure from the blade. Allow the
i
blade to reach full speed before continuing to feed the work piece in
to the blade. If the blade fails to move when feed pressure is released,
immediately switch off the machine and disconnect the power supply
before attempting to free the blade from the work piece.
Kg
• In general a minimum of 3 teeth should be in contact with the wood at all times during cutting.
The accompanying blade selection chart (see the table below) gives
guidance on the TPI that should give the best results when cutting a variety
of material types and thickness. The table below provides recommendations
on selecting the correct blade for a variety of commonly used materials. If
in doubt about any aspects of blade selection contact Customer Services in
your country.
The table provides a guide to selection only. Exact tooth configurations
are not always available, nor are all blade configurations covered, but the
principles remain the same. For special applications, custom blades can be
supplied please call Customer Services in your country.
WARNING! If any component of the machine fails whilst in use or
if the blade should break whilst the machine is running, immediately
switch off the machine and disconnect from the power supply. Remove
i replace only with genuine Record Power
the faulty component and
replacement parts. Any electrical components should only be replaced
by a suitably qualified person. To replace a broken blade, please refer
to the section of this manual entitled “Band saw Blade Set Up”.
Always remember to fully release the blade tension mechanism before
attempting to fit a new blade. If you are in any doubt about using the
machine following a failure or if you need to order replacement spare
parts or blades, please contact Customer Services in your country.

Custom Jigs & Work Support
A bandsaw is one of the most versatile machines in the workshop and with careful preparation many problems encountered on a job can be overcome.
By making and using custom jigs repetitive and accurate work can easily be achieved, the following illustrations are some examples of typical jigs and
supports used on a bandsaw.
Ex. 5. Jig for accurate repetitive wedges.
Ex. 2. Always support round pieces with a wedge or vee block. Take extreme
care as there is a danger that if the work is not secured properly the blade will
snatch the work piece, potentially causing it to spin or bounce back at you.

9. Dust Extraction
The Importance Of Dust Extraction
DX4000 High Filtration Dust Extractor
Before the machine is started, ensure that adequate dust extraction
provisions have been installed. Dust extraction is extremely important not
only for health and safety but also for the correct upkeep of the machine.
Saw dust can cause the machine not to operate properly or even fail
completely. By keeping the machine free of large amounts of waste the
performance will be optimised. If a large amounts of MDF or toxic woods
are to be cut we recommend that there is a good ventilation system in place
and that in addition to proper extraction a mask or respirator be worn as
minimum protection.

10.1 Replacing the bandsaw blade
HAZARD! Take great care when unpacking the bandsaw blade as they are
usually folded and can spring out very suddenly with great force.
TIP: If the new blade being fitted is a different width to the one being
removed, it is advisable to imove back and slacken off all blade guides
before fitting the new blade as this will make fitting easier. Whenever a
different size blade is fitted the blade guides will always need re-setting.
Fig.10.2
BLADE TENSION KNOB
1. Isolate the machine from the power supply.
2. Open the top and bottom band wheel doors by unscrewing the hex
socket screw, Fig 10.3 (14).
3. Remove the Hex socket screw and keep plate from the underside of the
table Fig 10.1.
BLADE TENSION INDICATOR
4. Turn the blade tension knob (17) to release the blade tension.
5. Remove the bandsaw blade by feeding it through the slot in the table,
upper blade guides and guard and slot in the spine of the machine taking
care not to cut yourself, wear gloves if necessary.
• Fit the new blade ensuring the blade teeth are pointing downwards and
towards you at the position where the blade passes through the table.
• Ensuring that the blade is fully in place on band wheel. Simply re-apply
tension using the tension knob until the tension indicator shows the correct
tension for the blade width.
• Adjust the blade tension further if required using the blade
tension knob.
6. Check the blade tracking on the newly fitted blade by turning the upper
wheel by hand. The blade should run as close to the centre of the band
wheel as possible. On 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" blades it may be necessary to
run the blade to rear of the band wheel (see section 6.2.)
Fig.10.3

7. If required adjust the tracking using tracking knob (15) and lock knob to
the rear of the upper band wheel housing. When the tracking is correct lock
the setting (see section 6.2).
8. Re-set the blade guides (see sections 6.3 & 6.4)
9. Close and lock both the band wheel doors before re-connecting the
power supply.
The blade tension indicator is a guide only and may need re-calibrating
periodically. For further information on blade tensioning see section 6.
If the blade teeth are pointing the wrong way simply twist the blade inside
out. Remember to always check the guides after changing any blade.

10.2 Replacing the drive belt
To replace the drive belt simply loosen the tension on the belt using the
tension handwheel. Remove the lower band wheel by undoing the circlip
on the hub. Remove the old belt and fit the new one Fig.10.4. Once the
drive belt is in place re-fit the lower band wheel and replace the circlip.
Now tension the drive belt using the tension handwheel. For further
information on tensioning the drive belt please see section 7.1.
10.3 The blade guide system
In general usage it is advisable to carefully apply silicon spray to the blade
guides to ensure free movement of the rollers, do not use oil or grease for
lubrication as this will attract dust and cause the rollers to jam. The blade
guide system is a consumable item and depending on usage will wear and
may need replacing.
When replacing components on the upper guide assembly first ensure that
the blade is removed. Undo cap head allen screws A & B then remove the
guard, Fig.10.5. Once the guard is removed then the various components
can be accessed and replaced. Undo the relevant cap head allen screws
for either the guide rollers or rear support roller Fig.10.6. and fit the new
parts. Once the new components are fitted. The blade should be re-fitted
Section 10.1 and the guides adjusted as shown in Section 6.

can be accessed and replaced. The roller bearings are shown in Fig. 10.7
and the thrust roller bearing at the rear in Fig.10.8. This is done by simply
undoing the relevant cap head allen screw and replacing the part. Once the
new components are fitted. The blade should be re-fitted Section 10.1
and the guides adjusted as shown in Section 6.3.

10.4 The table insert
The table insert on a bandsaw is a consumable item Fig.10.9 and will
therefore need replacing periodically. This procedure should be carried out
with the bandsaw blade removed. To replace the table insert simply push the
old insert out from underneath the table and fit the new one into position.
10.5 The band wheel tyres
The band wheels on this machine have rubber tyres fitted to the outer rim
of the wheel Fig.10.10 to protect the set of the blade when in use, also to
provide drive and to stop the blade slipping. As part of your regular service
schedule inspect the tyres for wear and damage and replace if necessary.
Again, this is a consumable part of the bandsaw and will need replacing
periodically, depending on usage.
Fig.10.9
TABLE INSERT
Fig.10.10
First remove the blade from the bandsaw, then remove the band wheel.
Gently ease the existing tyre from the rim taking care not to damage the
band wheel. To fit the new tyre it is a good idea to heat the tyre first in
hot water, this softens the rubber up and makes it easier to stretch it over
the band wheel. The tyres before stretching are much smaller than the
band wheel and a good deal of stretching is required to make them fit. It is
advisable to get help from a second person who can insert the wheel into
the tyre while it is fully stretched. It is easier to replace the tyre with the
wheels removed.
10.6 The band wheel bearings
The band wheel bearings are sealed for life units which will need replacing
periodically depending on usage.
To replace the bearings; first ensure that there is no blade fitted. Remove
the circlip from the hub and remove the band wheel (circlip pliers will be
required to carry out this operation), you will notice that there are two
separate bearings fitted in the hub pressed up against each other. Take a
brass drift (or similar) and tap one of the bearings out, the second bearing
should now be able to be pushed out.
When fitting the new bearings; position by hand in the wheel hub and tap in
until the bearing seats against the ridge in the casting. Fig.10.11.
10.7 Cleaning the table
The table is ground from cast iron and if cared for properly will provide
smooth, accurate performance. When machining wood a certain amount of
resin will be deposited on the surface, to ensure optimum performance the
table needs to be properly cleaned at regular intervals.
Firstly brush off all loose particles, then wipe clean with white spirit ensuring
that any resin build up is removed. Once the table has been thoroughly
cleaned it can now be treated with CWA195 silicone spray or wax. If these
guidelines are followed the timber will glide smoothly across the table.
10.8 The band wheel brush
The purpose of this brush is to remove any excess sawdust and resin
from the band wheel and tyre Fig.10.12. This brush will need adjusting
periodically depending on usage. Before each use inspect the brush and
make sure it is making sufficient contact with the band wheel to remove
sawdust from the tyre. The brush should be touching but not applying
pressure to the wheel. If it isn’t loosen the fixing and adjust accordingly so
it makes contact with the wheel. When the brush cannot be adjusted any
nearer the wheel due to the bristles being worn, then it must be replaced.
Periodically the brush may also become clogged up with resin (this is
especially common when cutting a long run of soft wood) if this occurs this
resin must be scraped off, as performance of the brush will be reduced.

i
When fitting the optional pedal wheelkit, the short mid brace
support (Fig. 3.7) at the front of the bandsaw should be removed.
Assembly
1. Mount the two casters to the flattened areas on the underside of the
operating frame, Fig. 15.2. Secure in place using the nuts bolts, washers and
spring washers provided, ensuring the spring washers are placed next to
the nuts.
2. Fit the release catch to the operating frame with the nuts and bolts
provided, Fig. 15.3.
3. Fit the two rotating casters to the pedal as shown in Fig. 15.4. Secure in
place using the nuts bolts, washers and spring washers provided, ensuring
the spring washers are placed next to the nuts.
4. Feed one of the axles through the hole on one of the brace support bars,
Fig. 15.5, and secure using one of the pins and washers provided, Fig. 15.6.
5. Feed the axle through the fixing holes on both of the rear legs of the
stand and pedal, Fig. 15.7. The rear side of the machine is that which is
closest to the spine, see Fig. 15.8.
6. Repeat this process at the opposite side ensuring that both sides of the
axle have been secured with the fixing pins and washers and that both sides
of the pedal are fixed. It should now be secure between the legs.
