A Clarke CBS45MD 370W METAL CUTTING BANDSAW to replace out current model (like for like)
I currently have the ability to buy from Machine Mart VAT free, meaning this would be £379 (see below).
The current bandsaw has had a hard life and has several niggles, specifically:
- Does not cut square
- Often struggles to cut at all
- Blade can get thrown off
A new one would mean that maintainers don’t need to spend hours and hours breathing life into an old knackered tool.
Machine Mart. I can buy VAT free until 7th Nov 2023.
It is a like-for-like replacement, though a new saw will enable me to produce a proper online quiz and hopefully control access to TRAINED USERS only.
£379. BUT we have £72 from the sale of some tool holders, making it £307.
If we sell the old saw, we could recoup up to another £100, I’d estimate.

Health & Safety
Risk assessment already exists. The new machine will only be safer as it has less wear and tear and is less likely to throw blades.
