The P12|8 was designed to clear 8-ft. material using a 12″ blade. This means that when you finish your stroke, the back end of your sheet will just have cleared the blade, causing no friction as the blade is spinning down.
The 102″ sliding table is constructed of anodized aluminum. The dumbbell design is widely recognized as the superior choice for high-end sliders today. Ultra-smooth movement allows you to move the table effortlessly.
The European style 51″ rip fence consists of a heavy-duty casting riding on a micro-polished solid steel bar. On the backside of the casting is a small adjustable wheel to make sideways movement a breeze. The rip fence is outfitted with a micro adjustment for fine-tuning; simply lock it in place and adjust fence incrementally.
The overhead guard comes standard with quick-change 90° and 45° guards; you can switch from one to the other in a matter of seconds. A nice detail is the swing-away function that allows you to quickly move the guard out of the way. Dust collection hookup is out of the way at the end of gantry (5″).
The heavy-duty anodized aluminum crosscut fence features two solid flip-stops, telescoping function (max 108″), 45° miter and is ergonomically designed to make it easier to read the tape.
Inside the P12|8 you will find heavy castings, solid gears and precision-machined trunnions mounted onto the solid steel frame.
The heavy-duty motor is equipped with soft start to minimize initial amperage draw.
The P12/8 comes standard with hold-down clamp, rip shoe, and push handle.
