... Your decision for Felder, a risk-free decision
Stable and compact saw unit built to last:
The Felder 500 Series saw assembly is fully compatible with dado tooling. Thanks to a removable table insert and flanges, specialized Felder dado tooling can be used.
Scoring Saw Blades have 2 parts and can be adjusted to the thickness of the main saw blade with a shim set. They feature square carbide teeth and posi-tive hook. The scoring saw blades rotate in the opposite direction to the main saw blade.
The continuously developed linear guiding system from Felder has been astounding woodworkers since 1990. The high quality format sliding table guiding technology “X-Roll” comes with a 10 year Felder warranty and offers amazing operating smoothness and is completely maintenance free. The “x” design of the position of the roller bearings ensures that they move smoothly along hardened guides.
The outrigger table enables the user to process large, heavy work pieces. For the highest in precision and stability, four rollers guide the telescopic support arm. The telescopic crosscut fence with mounting system and ergonomically designed scale with magnifying lens on the crosscut stop guarantees precise settings and crosscuts up to 2600 mm. The crosscut fence can be positioned between 90°-45° and has one crosscut stop as standard. There is a fixed end stop position for 90°.
Accurate angle adjustments, efficient operation and calibration are all made possible by the precision mitre guide index system.
The single handed adjustment system ensures quick and accurate setting of the rip fence. The standard rip capacity is 31” (800 mm) or an optional 49” (1250 mm). The easy to read rip scale is perfectly integrated into the saw table. The aluminum rip fence extrusion can be slid backwards to optimize the feed of workpieces. Optional parallel cutting fence fine adjustment
Stable and compact spindle unit for long lasting precision
An optional high speed router spindle can be ordered in place of the standard 1¼” (30 mm) bore spindle. (must be ordered prior to machine production)
Large dimensioned and designed for maximum load bearing capacity, the aluminium format sliding table “hovers” on the “X-Roll”, a highly developed guiding technology. The X shape (“X-Roll”) design of the rollers distributes the load optimally on all sides. The linear surface of the steel rollers running on the hardened and ground guiding surface guarantees unbeatable precision and smoothness. “X-Roll” will warrant you the quality and precision that you expect from your new tilting spindle shaper. Another reason to choose Felder: 10 year factory warranty to underline the reliability of “X-Roll”.
Without losing any settings, just a few turns of your hand allows you to swap spindles of varying diameters.
Additional to the parallel guiding of the spindle fence the MULTI-adjustment system also enables
The fence allows tooling of a maximum diameter of 240 mm to be used. The fine adjustment can be set between -5 to +25 mm. The extraction of the chips is done via the integrated extraction connection.
The safety bar guides, great for “end-grain” work (optional).
The use of a power feeder ensures that standard work when moulding can be carried out cleanly and precisely.
The Felder device for tilting the feeder away means the power feeder always remains on the machine and can be used at any moment without problems.
Electronic precision! The patented double-mitre gauge from Felder allows for mitre cuts on pieces with different widths and at any angle. Easy to use: Simply enter the desired angle as well as the widths of your work pieces on the keyboard. Immediately you will receive the settings and can set the electronic double miter gauge accordingly. The fence stop on the fence can be adjusted up to 53” with the scale. Depending on set angles, the lengthcompensating vernier scale will allow you to set the exact work piece length when you do angle cuts.
