Mitre Band Saw First Of Its Kind
New from Ellis Machine Tool Co., Verona, Wis., is a mitre band saw, said to be the first and only one of its kind.
Instead of swinging the stock, you simply swing the head of the Ellis miter band saw to cut angles up to 45? right or left without vising.
An engraved protractor, combined with finger clamp action, gives you immediate cutting position. This unique feature permits work to be locked into the same position when making straight or angle cuts.
The new-style metal band saw has a 71/4 in. throat. It will cut metal, plastic or wood stock up to 61/z in. wide at a 45? angle, and up to 91 in. wide at 90? angle. Its blade is 1/z in. by 7 ft., 6 in. Its 1/z hp. motor can be operated at 55, 110 or 220 BFM.
Here are some things you can do with this first of its kind mitre band saw: Split pipe or circles at any angle, slice round stock into paper-thin washers, saw compound angles on solid blocks, or split tubing into channel.
Set in the verticle position, the saw can be used to cut in a free hand scroll pattern, for notching flat pieces, for pointing angle iron, and many other uses.
Retail cost, including vertical saw• ing table and a stock stand with adjustable stop, is $995. For more details, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, hllis Machine Tool Company, Box 265, Verona, Wis. 53593 (ph. 608-845-6263).
