SBS250-DEP10 100-61mm Reducer for HPLV Extractors – RRP £9.99

With a cast iron table at the heart of this compact machine it is designed to offer those with limited space or budgets a real bandsaw with sensible capacity and performance, as an alternative to lightweight hobby machines.

The BS250 should not be confused with the lightweight hobby machines available in the market at a similar price. It shares the same essential build qualities as its larger cousins – strong steel frames, dynamically balanced bandwheels, cast iron tables and an induction motor. It has been designed to offer the user with space restrictions a serious machine in compact form. The machine can be bench mounted or fitted to the optional stand and wheel kit, providing great flexibility in a tight space.

Optional Stand & Wheelkit Available

The optional stand and wheelkit allow the BS250 to be moved easily around the workshop.

1 review for Record Power BS250 Premium Bandsaw

  1. Anatoliusz Ivanov (verified owner)

    I’ve a keen woodworker and model maker for over 60 years and decided that my 40 year old Rexon BS10 bandsaw was due an upgrade. I bought the Record BS250, complete with the wheel kit, after comparing it with all the other makes in my price range. It has been a good choice. I chose Record because they have a good track record.

    If you read the reviews about this model on other sites they are mostly good with a few users picking niggling issues mainly regarding the fence. Fear not. Spend some time in setting up the saw and as for the fence it just requires smoothing out the casting with a file so that it runs smoothly within the track. I have cut 1mm veneers with no issues.

    I think for the price it’s well worth it.
