Large precision ground cast iron table creates a solid, smooth surface to help dampen vibrations and allow your workpiece to glide effortlessly across the table, maintaining the line you want.
A curved chassis spine gives high strength and tension on the blade which is essential for deep and accurate cutting.
Featuring an industry standard size mitre fence groove, not normally found on machines of this size, you're able to upgrade to a variety of more elaborate mitre fences.
