Why Choose This?

At Powermatic, we believe that ambition is the fuel that drives progress. Every product we engineer is born out of the same idea: How can we empower woodworkers to do more? In shops across the world, craftsmen are continually pushing the limits of their creativity, and in turn, challenging us to provide the best tools for the job. When we reimagined our line of bandsaws, we not only set out to meet their ambitions, but to exceed them. Larger projects and larger workpieces call for more power, more resaw capacity and more cast iron. This bandsaw also features the legendary quality, precision and attention to detail that has been helping woodworkers expand their ambition for more than ninety years.
