When we think of a Stallion words like strength, grace, aggression, unbridled and beauty come to mind. CWI Woodworking Technologies has developed Stallion Sawing Equipment with these attributes as part of its DNA. A Stallion band saw will offer its owner a machine with impressive attributes that will allow him/her to tame any woodworking project with ease.
The CWI-B1512 15” Stallion band saw has more built in features, quality and performance than any competitor in its class. This saw was built to be the ultimate saw for educational users as well as demanding hobbyists. User safety, outstanding features and amazing performance was the basis of this saws design.
The CWI-B1512 is a heavy duty double welded steel frame floor model saw with a very strong 18 amp 2 hp motor and two cutting speeds. We use solid cast iron (not spoked) 15” wheels with replaceable rubber tires, massive 16” x 20” cast iron table with 3/8” x ¾” miter guide slot, hinged blade guard for easy blade change, viewing window for easy blade tracking adjustment, large lever blade tension release mechanism and a very accurate hydraulic blade tension indicator gauge. Resaw capacity under the ceramic blade guides is a full 12” for demanding performance.
Safety features include magnetic safety switch with overload and under voltage protection, micro switch protected doors will not allow the saw to start if the doors are open or if the door is opened during operation the saw will shut down. A foot brake is included also with a safety micro switch that shuts off the power when activated. The saw also features an LED light strip which turns on and off with the main power switch to constantly keep proper lighting conditions during use of the saw.
The Stallion GOLD anodized aluminum high performance dovetail blade guides are the newest and best in the industry. The CWI-B1512 comes standard with ceramic blade guides with the option of ball bearing guides for fine small blade cutting operations. Ceramic guides have been well proven to be the best support for most blade sizes and specifically for resaw work. For ¼” and smaller blades users can opt for ball bearing guides. The beauty of these guides is the simple dovetail ways the guides ride on. A simple 1/8” T wrench makes all the adjustments…..one twist of the wrench….move the guide…and re tighten. The ceramics are also easily removed for service or replaced instead of being glued in like others on the market.
Another prominent feature a user will first notice is the deluxe Stallion fencing system. The fence itself is black anodized aluminum “T” style fencing system smoothly sliding on ball bearings along the easy adjust aluminum rails. The fence can be used in its 6” tall version for resawing as well as to lay flat for thin wood cutting. The 25” fence is also easily adjusted for blade cutting drift in resaw or difficult wood cutting operations.
Dust collection on the Stallion band saw is easily performed with two 4” dust inlets…..one just under the lower blade guides and the other at the base of the lower cabinet.
Stallion Band Saws are truly in a class of their own, built with the attitude, grace, strength, performance and beauty you would expect….from a Stallion!
