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 miter up to 60 degrees to the right while maintaining the material in line.
The drive uses a single-phase power supply to run 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; a manual vise; hydraulic-/solenoid-powered downfeed; and status indicators for power on, correct blade tension, broken blade, and band wheel cover open.
