The Kalamazoo Machine Tool model H235 manual band saw is designed for light-duty cutting of tubes, pipes, light structural shapes, and small solids up to 8 in. at 90 degrees. The saw has a variable-speed blade from 65 to 320 FPM and can accurately miter up to 60 degrees to the right while maintaining the material inline.
The drive uses a single-phase power supply and transforms it to power a 230-V, three-phase drive motor. The drive motor is coupled directly to a worm gear drive for smooth power transmission. The heavy-duty construction includes carbide saw guides and rigid guide supports.
The saw features manual saw frame raise/lower, manual vise, and hydraulic/solenoid powered downfeed. Status indicators show power on, correct blade tension, broken blade, and bandwheel cover open.
