The W1849 boasts a set of Roller Disc Blade Guides, to keep the blade running perfectly straight and true. Therefore, you're assured of precision, enhanced cut quality and safety, because it also curbs any potential blade wobble. Additionally, the saw benefits from a Steel Column Box-Frame for extraudinary strength and rigidity. Consequently, it easily withstands any bending or twisting forces to give you years of reliable blade alignment and precision.

Furthermore, the W1849 is fitted with a hinged blade guard, a safety feature making it easy to access the blade. That's because, the blade guard swings open for fast blade changes, so you get total safety without sacrificing convenience. Consequently, these features, combined, add up to a bandsaw thats accurate, stable, and safe, while offering durability, efficiency, and simplicity.

Dual-Height Resaw Fence and Drift Bar

With a dual-height resaw fence, you can switch from low profile detail work, to a vertical fence for resawing. That way, you can clearly see what you're doing when working with low profile flat workpieces. But then you get maximum support for resawing with a full 6 inch tall support fence. This flexibility gives you the most out of your machine, without the need for expensive accessories.

Dual dust ports for effective dust collection

The Shop Fox W1849 has two, 4-inch dust ports; one under the table and another at the bottom of the cabinet. So the dual blade brushes then sweep dust into one dust port, and the second port removes any remaining debris. So, the W1849 offers some of the most efficient dust collection and air quality available.

Just another reason why we believe the Shop Fox W1849 is just about the best 14 inch bandsaw for the money.

That way blade changes are fast and easy without the need to step away from the machine for optimum productivity. Furthermore, it's way more convenient to change blades rather than attempting to use the wrong blade to save time.

A viewing window lets you set the blade tracking and tension to get the most out of each blade.
