Machine frame control panel
The controls that are mounted on the machine frame panel are identified clearly and are quite easy to operate. Rise and fall of main blade is achieved via handwheel.
The protection hood is mounted by a riving knife and allows 350 mm of maximum saw blade diameter along with 100 mm of maximum cutting height.
The rip fence is rather smooth and quite precise to adjust. It comes with hard chromeplated round bar which ensures effective and smooth movement of the fence. If you are looking to properly divide large panels, simply swing away the rip fence under the machine table level.
The crosscut fence is robustly mounted and enables extremely precise cutting results of 90° angles. All the settings are very easy to read from the slanted scales. Flip stops are quite robust and wholly free of play. They can also be easily slid individually along full crosscutting range.
