AMBASSADOR C14Pro

3HP 14" Stain-less Bandsaw

For many woodworkers, rust on bandsaws has long been a source of frustration. About ten years ago, Harvey began addressing this challenge by incorporating the TIN PVD Coating technology into products, reducing wear and rust on table saw surfaces.


However, Harvey is always striving for perfection. Five years ago, we started exploring the nickel plating technology. After countless tests on the process and formulation, we have successfully implemented optimal nickel plating technology on the tabletop, the cast iron flywheel and the Rack and Pinion Table Tilting System within the bandsaws, ensuring a literally rust-free experience for users by completely eliminating issues of wear and rust.

This superior nickel plating solution adopts the autocatalytic plating process, combining with a mid-phosphorus chemical nickel formula, significantly enhances wear resistance and rust prevention capabilities, resulting in a smoother and more lustrous finish.

Furthermore, the nickel-plated table surfaces achieved an impressive hardness of 500HV - 700HV, considerably improving their wear resistance. Extensive friction tests using wooden blocks consistently demonstrated that the nickel layer effectively protected the table surface.


We conducted a series of high-temperature and strong acid corrosion tests to evaluate the longevity of the nickel-plated surfaces. The results indicated that, under normal usage conditions, the nickel-plated surfaces could maintain their rust prevention performance for years. Notably, even in highly humid working environments, they exhibited exceptional rust prevention capabilities.


We are confident that the AMBASSADOR C14Pro Stain-less Bandsaw represents the ultimate solution to the rust problem in bandsaws. Guided by our steadfast philosophy that "Good Enough is Not Enough," this bandsaw exemplifies our unwavering dedication to innovation and precision.


Whatโ€™s more, the AMBASSADOR C14Pro Stain-less Band saw features a powerful 3HP motor, 14" resaw capacity, super solid steel frame (over 350 Ibs in weight), heavy-duty cast iron flywheels, uniquely designed Tool-less blade guides, the newly developed COMPASS RG-2 Roller Guide for your safe and enjoyable cutting; foot brake with micro switch, magnetic on/off switch, rack and pinion table tilting system, quick- release tension as well as Harvey uncompromising fine craftsmanship.


For woodworkers seeking a bandsaw that combines traditional reliability with innovative features, the AMBASSADOR C14Pro is the ultimate choice. Experience the next level of industrial-grade woodworking machinery with Harvey Industries.

Nickel-plated worktable


The worktable undergoes a chemical nickel-plating process that bonds the nickel layer thickly to the base material, reaching an impressive hardness range of 500 HV to 700 HV, significantly enhancing its durability and resistance to corrosion and wear. Extensive friction tests using wooden blocks consistently demonstrated that the nickel layer can effectively protected the table surface.


Additionally, we performed a series of tests involving high temperatures and strong acids to determine the longevity of the nickel-plated surfaces. The results showed that, under normal conditions, the nickel-plated surfaces could retain their rust-preventive properties for many years. Impressively, they also exhibited excellent rust prevention in highly humid work environments.

A substantial 19-3/4" x 15-3/4" cast iron table offers a smooth surface for precise work.


Heavy Duty Cast Iron Flywheels 

with Nickel-plating and Reinforced Structural Steel Frame


The nickel-plated Flywheels offer superior resistance to rust and wear, significantly extending their service life.

we performed a series of tests involving high temperatures and strong acids to determine the longevity of the nickel-plated surfaces. The results showed that, under normal conditions, the nickel-plated surfaces could retain their rust-preventive properties for many years. Impressively, they also exhibited excellent rust prevention in highly humid work environments. This ensures rust resistance and longevity, making the flywheels maintenance-free for rust prevention.

Dynamically balanced cast iron flywheels ensure smooth operation, minimal noise, and superior momentum for consistent cutting.


The reinforced solid steel frame provides remarkable rigidity and stability, enhancing durability and performance under the most demanding conditions.



Nickel-plated Cast Iron Rack 

and Pinion Table Tilting System


The nickel plating of the entire Cast Iron Rack and Pinion Table Tilting System offers enhanced resistance to corrosion and wear, making the C14Pro virtually maintenance-free for rust prevention. 

We carried out a series of high-temperature and strong acid corrosion tests to assess the durability of the nickel-plated components. The findings revealed that, under typical usage conditions, the nickel-plated surfaces could sustain their rust prevention performance for years. Remarkably, even in extremely humid working environments, they demonstrated outstanding rust prevention capabilities.

Precisely tilt the worktable from 45 degrees to -15 degrees using a Rack and Pinion Table Tilting System. Gas pistons assist in micro-adjustments, making the process smooth and straightforward.


Ball Bearing Blade Guides 

 feature Tool-less Adjustment


The newly designed ball bearing blade guide has a ball bearing on each side of the blade and the back of the unit which ensures the minimum blade movement.

The tool-less adjustment and lock knobs are thoughtfully  designed to provide easy access and use.


Comes with 

the COMPASS RG-2 Roller Guide

In order to enhance the operation safety and user experience of the C14Pro, our newly developed COMPASS RG-2 Roller Guide is in- cluded as standard accessor. The main body of RG-2 is made of anodized aircraft-grade aluminum with high precision machining and beautiful anodizing.

The Compass RG-2 Roller Guide utilizes an 'Independent Suspension Mechanism where each roller has its own pre-loaded spring. This design enables the two guide rollers to adapt to dynamic stock surfaces with consistent holding pressure by moving independently

The Self-locking Cam Structure allows for precise holding force adjustment by rotating the knob to optimize pressure for specific cutting situations. It offers an adjustable range of approximately 15-22 lbs(70-100 N),suitable for various cutting scenarios.


Powerful Motor

The 3 HP TEFC, industrial grade motor supplies the robust power needed for the large capacities of this band saw.


Foot Brake with Micro Switch

Immediately stops the saw blade when needed.
