  • Part Number: S/N 4932



  • To prevent nicks on the blades, please check your board carefully and remove nails, screws, and any other metal bits.
  • Work with pure wood only, please! Masonite, for example, will quickly dull the blades. Even plywood, particleboard, MDF, and the like will shorten the blade life because of the glue content.
  • DO NOT adjust the outfeed table except when changing blades! if you check them and find they are out of adjustment, contact the zone warden or equipment trainer, they will advise what action you should take.
