The BS42H4 is a high quality band saw for preparing wood, plastic & foam with a cutting height of 275mm and rip capacity of 420mm.

Its robust steel construction, houses two large 440mm diameter cast iron wheels, which are driven by a 4 Horse Power motor, producing a saw blade speed of 850 rpm. The saw blade guides are present both above and below the table to help ensure accuracy.
A solid cast iron table (420 x 575mm) provides a sound and sturdy base to pass wood over. A ‘cut out’ in the table prevents table movement over time, ensuring the cast iron stays flat. The table also has a tilt facility.
The tension of the blade can constantly be monitored due to the position of the indicator in a side window.
HME supply the BS42H4 with key switch, foot stop, micro switch on the blade cover door and 100mm wood dust collection spigot.

HME recommend that this unit is connected to suitable dust extraction (not shown).
