A line of sawbenches that are typical Ronaldson Tippett Productions
Model A, cross-cutting and ripping sawbench
Frames are of thoroughly seasoned 4 inch x 3 inch Vanikoro Kauri or other high grade timber, check jointed and fitted with ground sills. Note substantial stays to hold frame rigid.
Frame can be quickly tightened up – no mortices to rot. The bearings are lined with white metal, and, being self aligning, the 1-5/8 inch saw spindle will always run freely.
The table is steel plated at feeding end, and has case hardened steel rollers which run very easily on angle steel rails.
When ripping, the table is held to the bench frame by one bold; the adjustable guide which forms the back rest for cross-cutting is then turned round and can be set to cut plants to any desired thickness.
This bench is quipped for boring droppers. Only the best English saws are fitted.
Sizes 24 inch, 26 inch, 30 inch, and 36 inch.
Model B, cross-cutting sawbench
Our standard cross-cutting sawbench is made in three sizes, 24 inch, 30 inch and 36 inch.
It is essentially a quality production that will stand up to a life-time of hard work.
Frames are of 5 inch x 4 inch thoroughly seasoned Vanikoro Kauri or other superior timber, check joins are used through and bolted together so that the frame may be tightened whenever necessary. There are no mortices.
Four iron stays and ground sills ensure rigidity.
A log guard is fitted round the saw.
Special ring oiler bearings provide for lubrication and economy in oil. A 1 3/4 inch bright steel spindle with strong washers carries the saw.
The rolling top is nearly 4 feet wide with an outer guard rail, and is carried on four non-choking adjustable rollers.
This bench is equipped with an attachment for boring droppers.
The best English saws only are fitted.
Model C, tilting table sawbench
This is a very handy sawbench for small requirements.
It can be driven by an engine of low power capacity, and its cost is so reasonable that it is brought within the reach of every firewood cutter.
