Bandsaw extraction

As you are already aware the Department of Education has provided funding to facilitate the extraction of bandsaws in Technology workshops.  Solutions to this will differ from workshop to workshop and from school to school.  An extraction system (for existing Hammer and Startrite bandsaws with an extraction port) will shortly arrive in your school.  This will be installed and commissioned by Lee saw Company upon delivery.  For those bandsaws which cannot be extracted, they will be replaced with a Hammer bandsaw with accompanying extraction unit.   The installation of these units will be carried out by the maintenance department within the SELB.  The school must therefore complete a sale or disposal form to ensure collection of the obselete bandsaws.  We appreciate this is a very busy time for schools but we value your patience and co-operation in providing a smooth transition to new equipment.
