Important Features of the No. 81 Band Saw Bench
Modular Design
  1. The rugged square tube steel frame of the basic bench is pre-drilled so all optional equipment may be easily added as needed.  The filer can fit his bench just the way he wants it.  To accommodate especially long or short saws, the number of stand units may be increased or reduced as needed.
  2. The pre-drilled design assures quick and easy installation in the filing room.  No special tools are needed.
  3. The bench may be set up for either right or left hand operation with equal ease.
  4. Additional stand units may be added if the saw length is changed enough to make them necessary.
Easy Adjustability
  1. The bench can be raised or lowered to fit the height best suited for the length of the saw.  Adjustable from 36" to 60" in height.
  2. The leveling block is quickly adjusted and leveled at the height needed for proper alignment of the saw with the stretcher roll.
  3. The end saw supports are easily adjusted in or out to fit the length of the saw.
  4. The Armstrong movable stretcher rolls have an adjustable base which matches the adjustability of the bench, for precise coordination of the height of the bench and the stretcher roll.  Adjustable bases are available for older model Armstrong Stretcher rolls which did not have this advantage.
Proven Design and Dependability
  1. The No. 81 Band Saw Bench was designed with filers' requirements the first consideration.  It incorporates many tried and proven ideas generously contributed by saw filers and saw doctors all over the world.
  2. The No. 81 Band Saw Bench is backed by Armstrong's world-wide reputation for high quality design and construction.
