Woodcraft Offers Rikon Bandsaw Adapted for Cutting Meat

Woodworkers value the bandsaw for its versatility in cutting wood, but the Rikon Meat Saw available at Woodcraft reveals another side of a bandsaw’s capability.  “In addition to woodworking, we found that many of our customers enjoy hunting or they raise livestock and prefer to process the meat themselves, rather than rely on someone else,” Woodcraft power tool sales manager Andrew Bondi said.  “At Woodcraft we offer a one-stop source for whatever type of bandsaw they need.”
Meat Saw with Sliding Table

Designed for meat cutting, the 10″ Rikon Meat Saw (Bandsaw) is powered by a 3/4 HP TEFC motor that can handle big cutting jobs, including most fresh and frozen meat.  Two adjustable fences guide and support the meat on the sliding tabletop.  The built-in grinder with 4-1/2″ throat processes meat into patties or links.

“Rikon built this 167-lb. bandsaw for serious cutting,” Bondi said.  “The body is heavy-duty gauge steel sheet, with a 9-5/8″ throat, and the 22-7/16″ x 17-5/16″ stainless steel table, with ball bearing sliding mount, provides a large work area.  Plus Rikon covers the saw with a five-year limited warranty.”

Here is Joe Taylor, sales rep for Rikon to explain the details in this new bandsaw.

This product is considered a special order which ships directly from the manufacturer.

    I always saw this Band saw at the meat section in the grocery store. It is really very sharp and can cut on meat very smoothly. It is really great to invest on a good band saw to avoid delayed of work or downtime. Reply
