Our customers have been requesting that we offer this machine preloaded with Carbide inserts from the beginning. With its 4 heavy duty guide posts and 2 heavy duty elevating screws, cutterhead snipe lock, internal gears for height adjustment, depth Repeat Cut and large tables, it has all the features a pro would need.
