A real workhorse, the DL5000 is one of the biggest and fastest bandsaws available for glass. Now you're limited only by your imagination! This top of the line bandsaw cuts intricate shapes in glass up to 12" wide and 3/4" thick. Super powerful 1/2 hp variable speed motor makes easy work of even the thickest glass. The recirculating water pump keeps a steady flow of water at the cutting point, and the oversize 15" x 13" cutting table provides stability for large sheets of glass.
The special 3/16" diamond blade easily makes the most intricate cuts in glass. Want to cut a 24" circle? No problem. How about an "S" curve in dalle de verre slab glass? You can do it all with the DL5000!
For making intricate cuts in marble, granite, ceramic, travertine and porcelain, a special 1/4" diamond tile blade is available (Item #7397RB).
Pros : The saw cuts like a dream through a variety of glasses including thick pot melts. Set up was easy and saw is easy to use.
Cons : Very loud! I have to wear ear plugs. The blades are poorly made, I got maybe 2 hours of cutting time on 1 blade and maybe 3 hours on the second. I am currently looking for a different manufacturer for blades. The saw is also very messy, water flows everywhere and the water tray is too small to catch any of it. I have placed the entire saw and tray into a large plastic container to catch the water run off from the table. This is working well for me.
Other Thoughts : I purchased this saw as a step up from my DL 3000 because I have just worn it out. I thought that this saw would be a little more sturdy for the amount of use I put a saw through, so far it just seems more expensive. The blade cost compared to blade quality is horrible and the noise level is unbelievable. I would not purchase this saw again but would purchase 3 of the DL 3000 for the same cost.
