Whether it's face frames, long runs or full production, the SLR12 Straight Line Rip Saw has every job covered. Powered by a 15HP main motor, this saw has the capacity for virtually any job. The 12" main blade mounts on a high alloy, heat treated arbor that is precision ground and dynamically balanced for maximum stability and long durability. The caterpillar feed chain blocks are constructed of special grade cast iron that is heat treated and precision machined. The track travels on hardened "V" way guides insuring rigidity and accuracy. A full brush cleaning system with auto-oiler and shut-off gives the conveyor a long service life. All of this is driven by a 2HP feed motor with variable speed to perfectly match the feed rates with your production and finish requirements. A series of seven stock hold downs keep each work piece flat and straight throughout the cutting cycle. Dual anti-kickback devices help prevent discharge of work pieces. The heavy-duty precision rip fence travels on a solid steel guide rail and is micro-adjustable for fast, accurate set up. Controls for rip width, cutting depth, main and feed motors are all mounted up front for fast job changes. The large cast iron table surface supports any size stock and the efficient dust collection port insures a clean work area.

True to its name, purpleheart boasts vibrant purple heartwood, and a fine, satiny texture. Initially a dull brown, it takes on its brilliant tone shortly after the wood is cut. The sapwood is creamy, pinkish cinnamon. It has exceptionally high bending and crushing strength, is dimensionally stable, and is extremely resistant to decay. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Alternate name: Peltogyne.Tree: Usually tall, with a height of about 100 to 150 feet and a diameter of up to 48 inches, usually between 18 and 36 inches.Heartwood: Initially dull brown, rapidly changing to a bright, vibrant purple. Prolonged exposure darkens wood to a dark-purplish brown or dark brown, but the original color can be preserved with a UV inhibitor. Color variation among boards is reported to be moderate to high. Presence of minerals in some boards may cause uneven coloration and steaming is reported to affect the color. Light & Air-Induced Changes: Treatment against the effects of ultra-violet rays maintainss the original color of the wood. Treatment with Armorall, the car finish product, under lacquer is reported to hold the color well.Grain: Typically straight, occasionally wavy or irregular.Texture: Medium to fine.Luster: Medium to high.Movement: Very dimensionally stable.Natural Durability: Highly resistant to attack by decay fungi, very resistant to dry-wood termites, and somewhat resistant to attack by marine borers. Also reported to be resistant to chemicals such as acids.Cutting Resistance: Purpleheart is moderately difficult to saw. Tools usually require frequent sharpening. A reduced cutting angle of 15 degrees is recommended, especially when planing and moulding material with interlocked or wavy grain. Nailing: The wood requires to be pre-bored, but nail-holding capabilities are reported to be good.Steam Bending: The wood steam bends fairly well.Strength Properties: Bending strength in the air-dry condition is very high, and crushing strength is exceptionally high. It does not mar or dent easily, and is very heavy and dense.
With a unique triple chip tooth design, this 10" blade leaves extremely smooth, true surfaces for glue and finish work. Ideal for ripping hard and soft woods 1/8" to 1" thick.Technical Details:A super-thin .091" kerf requires less power and allows for a faster feed rate, while laser-cut anti-vibration slots drastically reduce vibration and sideways movement in the cut, extending blade life and giving a crisp, swirl-free flawless finish.Application-specific super micrograin carbide teeth are 50-60% larger than standard carbide teeth and allow for multiple re-sharpenings.Anti-vibration technology eliminates sideways movement against the material for a quieter, smoother cut with a superior finish and long cutting life.Laser-cut heat expansion slots allow the blade to expand during use to keep the cut true and straight.Permanent red Teflon coating prevents rust and guarantees less working friction and resin adhesion.Precision-tensioned blade bodies made of high strength steel (40-45 Rc) stay flat and true throughout years of service.Tri-metal brazing technique produces strong, impact resistant bond between carbide teeth and steel blade body.
Newly redesigned, these high-friction rubber pads hold your project rock-steady while sawing, sanding, or routing without the use of clamps. Plus they now include a threaded insert for adding a variety of accessories, that elevate your work and provide plenty of clearance for all your project needs.Bench Cookie Finishing Bridges allow you to balance narrow rails, stiles, dowels and louver stock for finishing. They provide minimal surface contact between the Bench Cookie Finishing Bridge and your workpiece. Meanwhile, the Work Grippers maintain a non-slip, stable base for the Bridges.
