Rikon Bandsaw

BS

The Innovation Studio has a Rikon bandsaw that features a tiltable 21″ x 19″ table and two speed ranges with maximums of 1510 ft/min and 3220 ft/min respectively. The saw has a re-saw capacity of 12″, meaning it can slice workpieces of up to 12″ height. Blades for both wood and metal are available. A 6 teeth-per-inch blade and a speed close to 1300 ft/min is recommended for wood, and a finer, 14 teeth-per-inch blade and a speed close to 130 ft/min is recommended for harder metals.
