Product Description

A benchtop woodworking bandsaw with a 4'' cutting capacity. 

  • Precision Ground Cast Iron Work Table
  • Quick Action Locking Rip Fence
  • Supplied with High-Quality British Made Blade
  • Quiet Induction Motor
  • Crosscutting Mitre Guide Included
  • 4'' Cutting Depth Capacity
  • 10'' Cutting Width (Throat)
  • Quick Action Blade Tension Setting
  • Primarily used for Woodworking

A small sized woodworking bandsaw with a durable precision ground cast iron tilting table with a stop for returning to 90 degrees, after a bevel cut, and T shaped mitre fence slot. When working with larger pieces there is a sliding table extension support adding 100mm to the table width. 

The quick-release fence locks securely onto the front rail of the table to provide a rigid straight guide for ripping. A magnifier is included to aid the accurate setting of the fence along the scale, marked out in mm. The fence can be fitted on either side of the blade.

The sliding mitre fence is adjustable 60 degrees in each direction, for crosscutting wood at any angle.

The rack & pinion blade guard design is adjusted by using a dial on the side of the machine. The blade is then guided by two side facing bearings and a rear thrust bearing attached to the end of the guard. The side bearings are mounted on an eccentric cam, for faster setting, and can be adjusted without using any tools. The same guide set up is repeated below the table giving maximum blade control and keeping the blade true when a straight cut is required.

A safety feature, only usually found on larger bandsaws, is the addition of  microswitches on the doors to prevent accidental startup when changing a blade. 

Replacing a worn blade, or switching to the blade you keep for curved work, has been sped up by adding a quick release tension lever. The lever removes all tension from the blade to quickly remove it from the bandsaw. When the new blade is in position, return the lever to add the tension. 

Finished off with a durable powder-coated paint finish.

Supplied with rip fence, mitre fence adjustable 60 degrees each way, 3/8" high-quality British made blade, NVR switch, 100mm diameter extraction outlet, push stick, 2.0m power cable and UK 3 pin plug.

Fixing holes are provided for mounting onto a bench or onto the optional floor stand.

This Bandsaw is fitted with a High Quality, British manufactured blade with precision ground teeth for incredible cutting results.

"The Bandsaw arrived well packaged and assembled with ease. The base plate was deformed by about 5mm in one corner but shimmed OK. The tilting table is great once stripped down and re-assembled to make use of the spring loaded handle because it was not holding firm and you don't want it to move halfway through a cut. It states "Hobby use" and it definitely is. Have cut 75mm thick but it struggles over about 45mm with the feed painfully slow. For cutting ply it is fine. The blade once setup correctly stays true to spindles and bearing guides well and tensioning is easy. Dust extraction is not so good and the cabinet fills with sawdust quite quickly. It serves its purpose and it is relatively cheap but for thick and hard material you will want a bigger beast."

"Charnwood 410 Bandsaw Overall • Very satisfied so far, having made a few test cuts. Time will tell more. • Takes a while to setup Good points • Solid build, heavy gauge sturdy steel frame. • Cast iron table, and cast iron bearing housings. • Table mount is solid. • Fences and other parts seem good quality and lock in place nicely. • Fairly quiet in operation. Problems • Base of the unit was distorted, so that on level surface there was about 5mm gap at one corner. However, when bolted down it pulled straight. This caused a little paint cracking. • The mains plug had very bent pins. • Slight vibration when the unit is running. Perhaps one of the wheels is a bit out of balance. • The motor pulley was incorrectly positioned on the shaft such the belt would not run properly seated on all its groves. I had to remove the motor in order to undo the grub screw and move the pulley forward. Setup Notes • Took a good few hours to set up (but I’ve not set one up before). • Note that the instructions are mostly clear, except on the setup of the guide bearings. At first inspection the lateral bearing adjuster seem to only control the position of the bearing relative to the front or back of the blade. However (and I did not notice this for a while), the adjuster is eccentric, so turning it moves the bearing closer or further from the blade. The manual is a bit vague on the whole bearing setup, but on watching a YouTube video on bandsaw set up, all becomes clear. • The manual recommends 0.5mm gaps between the blade and guide bearings. Most online advice seems to be that the gap should be smaller, maybe 0.2 or 0.1mm. I have setup with about 0.2 (use feeler gauge). • As mentioned above, the motor pulley may need adjusting. • Getting the table square is quite easy. • It was not necessary to adjust the tracking, as the blade is running true on the wheels and does not wander. • I made my own stand for the unit out of timber lying around in the garage.

"Unfortunately my follow-up review will not be very helpful. I found a way to secure the table temporarily so that I could test-run the machine over the weekend and found that my particular example vibrated quite a lot more than I expected a belt driven bandsaw to do ( more than my direct drive BASA 1 and Hobby bandsaws !). The following Monday afternoon my spare parts had not been despatched, and as I was not too happy and with the door misalignment, the problem with the faulty table mounting casting and then the rough running, I did begin to think that perhaps my BS410 had perhaps been damaged in transit and so I thought I would check with Yandles to see if I could pay the extra and upgrade to the Premium version. As always, Yandles were more than happy to help. Unfortunately the Charnwood 10" Premium saw was showing as being out of stock, but I was kindly offered the opportunity to upgrade to the similar BS250 Premium 10" bandsaw from Record - and this saw also happened to be at a special price and with free delivery so I decided to return this bandsaw and buy the Record BS250 instead. I did like the look of this Charnwood band saw and it has some good features than my replacement machine will not have including the quick release blade tension, proper dovetailed table slots, the helpful tension adjustment indicator and the extending table feature - so it is a machine that has a lot of features for the money and I am sad that my machine did not arrive in better condition as I think I would have probably ben very pleased with it.

"I bought my Charnwood BS410 10" bandsaw from Yandles and it has just arrived this afternoon, so my first review is based on my 'first impressions" and my reasons for choosing to buy this particular machine. I am a model maker and already own two small 8" bandsaws, one is set up with a small tooth 1/4" blade for fine work (Axminster Hobby) and the other was my first ever bandsaw that I have owned for several years now and I use it for 90% of all my bandsaw work (BASA 1). I wanted to buy a slightly larger bandsaw with a bigger throat as several of the things I cut will not pass through the 8" throat and the extra 2" of clearance would make a big difference to the way I work and avoid me having to either hand-cut or invert the work to feed it in from the opposite direction (this sometimes works depending on the shape and size of item I am cutting!). The BS410 looked like a nice bandsaw, and due to the lockdown I was unable to travel to take a good look at any machine so first impressions count for more than usual, and the current special offer price from Yandles (that also includes 3 spare blades) looked unbeatable for a 10" machine, and my reasoning was that most of these "hobby class" bandsaws are made in China (and to a similar quality standard) irrespective of what colour they are painted and whose stickers they have on them. I also liked some of the features this machine has to offer such as the blade tension release lever and other small detail points such as the blade tracking window and the tension chart inside to assist with rapid blade change and set-up. The table being 340mm x 340mm is only slightly bigger than my BASA, but the "slide-out" front table extension could be helpful with some jobs and it moves back out of the way when it is not needed. The fact that the colour matches my favourite BASA 1 is "by the way" - but they do look good alongside each other in the workshop! The advise offered to me when I called Yandles to discuss my theory about the Chinese "hobby" bandsaws not being "much different" to each other (quality wise) was very helpful, and this helped me to decide to support a British company's product with the features I liked - and at a very good price! The delivery time from order date to delivery to my door was less than two days so I did not have to wait long too long to unpack and set-up the saw at home in my workshop. The saw does not really take up much more bench space than my BASA but it stands a little taller. On checking the throat measurement I was a little disappointed to measure it at 9 5/8" - a little short of the 10" clearance I wanted- but still an improvement over what I currently have. I would have liked the built-in flexi-neck lamp, the small bolt-on tool carrier, the under-frame dust box, and the flap on the dust port that the 10" Charnwood stand mounted model comes with, but that was out of stock and I probably wouldn't use the stand in any case.....but the other parts would have been very desirable - and for not much more cash either! I spent some time setting the machine up and called Charnwood regarding a couple of issues that I needed some help and advice with, and I was very pleased and impressed with the friendly and helpful response I was given resulting in a new replacement part being put in the post for me to fit. At first I thought that the fence did not slide across the table as freely as it should, but after cleaning off the dried-on packing grease (obvious really!) it slides very nicely, and was further improved after I polished the table with some machine wax. I was pleased to see that the two blue painted doors were steel and not plastic, but I had to further elongate the over-sized hole (hidden under an over-sized washer) that had been drilled in the top door to allow the shaft of the closure knob to force-fit it's way into the main frame - and it was still was not a big enough hole as the shaft had to force itself into the machine frame at an angle that made it very stiff to turn and threatened the longer term longevity of the screw thread. I tried adjusting the two upper door hinges first, but that failed to work as it caused the safety interlock to misalign, and would not give enough movement to align the door lock in any case. The lower door lock was drilled in the right place (!) with a "normal size" M6 clearance hole and it aligned perfectly with the lock and micro-switch engagemant - and had no washers on it! After I had "modified the top door to close properly I fitted a 30mm oversize washer to the inside and outside to support the closure shaft correctly and to further hide the over-sized hole! I then added a pair of the same sized washers to the lower door so they looked like a matched pair. Although this modification was only made to correct a fault, the two doors now align correctly and the matching large washers actually look quite smart! As we are now entering the weekend I will have time to take a further look at the machine and report back with the second part of my review after the replacement part has arrived and been fitted. So the my first impressions of my new Charnwood BS410 10" wood working bandsaw are really quite good (especially for the price paid) and to have the help and support of Charnwood and Yandles is a further benefit that I have gained by buying "locally" from two good suppliers."
