The Elektra Beckum PKF 255 V8 panel saw is the largest and most advanced of the PK table and panel saw series. At first glance it may seem similar to the PK 300, but the PKF 255 V8 has a more sophisticated and larger sliding table system.
This machine was also marketed under the term ‘ProfiLine‘, indicating that this was a serious machine not just intended for woodworking enthusiasts, but professionals as well.
There exist two versions: a green or blue Elektra Beckum version and the blue Metabo-branded one (2006 – onwards). This machine is more based (perhaps even identical) on the Metabo TKU 1693 than the old Elektra Beckum PK series. There may be small differences though.
It comes with several useful features, like a large and well-supported sliding table and a scoring blade, making it suitable for cutting sheet goods.
Replacement Saw Blades: The PKF 255 uses blades of 250mm with a 30mm arbor. Luckily, blades this size are still very common today, so you have many options to choose from.
For example, you can find blades that will fit the PKF 255 with good reviews on Amazon UK or Amazon Germany.
Quality saw that is a level above many other vintage table or panel saws in this price range.
