Easy Material Handling: A sturdy backgauge and rake angle adjustment minimizes twist and distortion. This makes it possible to increase the rake for cutting heavier stock and extend maximum capacity of the machine. A 4' squaring arm with a recessed scale makes for fast, easy measurement.
Modified High Carbon, High Chrome Reversible Knives: Provide four separate edges for clean cuts and long blade life. Easy blade gap adjustment means precise cuts for a wide variety of materials.
Electrical System: Meets NFPA 79 and construction requirements of the ANSI B11.4. All machines have disconnect switches magnetic starters, 110/120v controls, and 208-230/460v 3 phase, others optional.
