Description

The Boss has never liked to rip a workpiece in thin strips on a band saw. It takes patience and a lot of concentration. There is no room for error.

Once again, Bow is establishing the new STANDARD for bandsaw cutting with its GuidePRO, an easy-to-install guide that offers users a hands-free solution to getting the best performance from their bandsaw.

  • The GuidePRO applies consistent pressure along the leading edge of the workpiece ensuring even contact between the workpiece and saw fence
  • The GuidePRO features a 6"(150mm) flexible silicone feather that conforms to variations in shape and thickness of material while dampening vibration
  • Quick and easy to setup, it is non marring. Great for thin stock, odd shapes and tall panels, the feather is also easily replaceable if damaged
  • Its ergonomic grip is comfortable and allows variable pressure to be applied to your work piece
  • The easy to reach locking lever engages the cam in the bottom. When engaged, the cam is able to hold the desired pressure
  • The GuidePRO base is also detachable and becomes a measuring tool featuring metric and imperial measurement. Perfect for use when squaring and measuring fence setup.
  • In only three simple steps, the user can gain a smoother infeed, ensure consistent pressure, reduce vibration and deliver the perfect cut every time.
    1. Insert the miter cam into the miter slot
    2. Position material to the blade and apply desired tension
    3. Set the GuidePRO lock

  • GuidePRO fits 3/4”(19mm) wide x 3/8”(9.5mm) deep table grooves that range from 2”(50mm) to 8”(200mm) of the blade

Now, focus on the feed!

A word from the boss 

Something new to celebrate the end! (21-07-01)

If the trend continues, we should see the end of restrictions related to this pandemic soon. Let's say that both customers and employees will be happy to put the mask aside as soon as the vaccination campaign has reached the desired objectives by public health officials.

The woodworking sector continues to be very busy due to sustained demand and delays due to supply delays. The pressure on rising prices continues and everyone is wondering whether it will be temporary or permanent.

As the Boss pointed out in his previous posts, not everything has been bad in the last 16 months. Many changes in shopping habits as well as the popularity of online business incited us to work on redesigning and improving our transactional site.

We are currently in the process of fine-tuning the whole thing and should be able to make it accessible as early as September. Until then, have a nice summer and...

Let's go for the second dose if we want to move on!
