Northfield under table/up-cut saws. These saws are semi-automatic, air-actuated, under-table cutoff saws for 90 degree cutting of wall panel components. The blade remains in the heavy sheet steel base until the guard has the raw material clamped. The guard remains clamped through the cut cycle until the blade is back in the base. This protects the operator from flying debris and any potential kickback during the cutting process. Basic models include:
- Model 208 – 2″ x 8″ capacity with 14″ blade
- Model 212 – 2″ x 12″ capacity with 16″ blade
- Model 410 – 4″ x 10″ capacity with 18″ blade
- Model 612 – 6″ x 12″ capacity with 24″ blade
- Model 1012 – 10″ x 12″ capacity with 32″ blade
Other models for larger profile raw materials are available along with multiple options and add-ons for each model. Northfield saws can be designed for cutting lumber, non-ferrous metals, plastics, and composites.
