Blade Height and Tilt Adjustment Through Cast Iron Wheels
The blade tilt and blade height wheels are 8″ diameter cast iron wheels. Operation is smooth and when locked in place, they stay locked in place.
Blade Tilts Left for Safer Operation
When a blade tilts away from the fence the operation is safer because the cut off pieces cannot get wedged between the fence and the blade so there’s less likelihood of dangerous kickbacks.
240VAC, 3 Horsepower Motor.
The motor is a powerful 3 horsepower, 240VAc motor and this XACTA saw uses a V belt to help reduce vibration and to provide more efficient power transfer to the blade.
Wide Table Top Allows Wide Rip Cuts
The included XACTA commercial fence works in conjunction with a wider right side table extension to allow rip widths up to 50″. The fence slides smoothly on the front rail and stay locked in place when locked down with no creep or flex.
Magnetic On/Off Switch
If you have ever had a circuit breaker trip when using a table saw, then you have experienced how dangerous it can be. Without a magnetic switch the table saw will power back up when the power is restored and can result in a very dangerous condition. Using magnetic on/off switch means when the power is lost, the saw turns off so it does not come back on when power is restored.
The safety features you would like all come standard with this XACTA Jet Table Saw. Blade guard, riving knife, anti-kickback mechanisms (pawls) are part of this table saw.
