16" Heavy-Duty Bandsaw



A heavy frame bandsaw with 14" resaw capacity

The South Bend 16" Heavy-Duty Bandsaw features a powerful 3 HP motor that powers through hardwoods with massive 14" resaw capacity and dual ball bearing guides for consistent blade tracking.

The 20-7/8" x 25-5/8" x 2" thick precision-ground cast-iron table tilts from 5° left to 45° right. It features the strongest rack-and-pinion table tilt mechanism in the industry, allowing you to place the heaviest loads on the table without losing table squareness.

A table tilt scale with pointer is provided on the heavy-duty cast-iron trunnion and a positive stop is provided for quickly returning the table back to 0° after cutting a bevel.

A cast-iron fence with dual-position 6” extruded aluminum resaw fence attachment allows you easily switch between resawing and thin-cutting applications.

The quick-release lever allows for super-fast blade changes, while the blade tension scale allows you to properly tension your blade to ensure accurate cuts and maximize blade life.

Dual 4" dust ports are positioned just under the table and at the lower wheel for optimal dust collection, helping keep your cut line clear and your work area dust-free during operation.

This powerful 3HP Bandsaw has a mechanical foot brake, so you can have both of your hands on the workpiece when bringing the blade to a stop.

The extra thick steel frame houses computer-balanced cast-iron wheels designed to minimize vibration during operations.

The built-in storage compartment will keep those extra blades organized within arm’s reach.
