This machine is ideal for straight, mitre and compound cuts, and is usable on all wood types, non-ferrous metals, plastics, printed-circuit board laminates, foam, as well as rubber, cork, or other materials.
Even the smallest items can be cut cleanly without the need for subsequent finishing. A table indicates the recommended speeds for various materials. The load-bearing parts of this machine are made from die-cast aluminium, and the stable machined aluminium top measures 295 x 240mm.
A mitre slot and fence are provided for square cutting of workpieces, and an integral extension wing can be pulled out to increase the effective table width to 500mm.
The blade runs in a ball-bearing arbor and is toothed-belt driven enabling quiet operation. We include a tungsten carbide blade as standard. Depth of cut is adjustable from 1mm - 22mm and the blade can be tilted through 45 degrees.
