AIR POWERED WORKTABLE
This accessory replaces the standard 30" x 30" worktable, variable weight power feed,
and workholding jaw. It also reduces the machine's work height to thirteen inches.
The air powered worktable is a heavy, ribbed cast-iron table, 26-1/2 x 33-1/2 inches,
with two 1/2 inch T-slots for tooling purposes. It has a 12 inch feed stroke and is op-
erated at 80 psi on shop air. Mechanical stops are provided to limit table travel if de-
sired. The table can also be tilted 6 left or 45 right, and locked in place for angle
cutting. A removable center plate is provided. This can be replaced with special plates
for filing or polishing. A pin work rest inserted into a hole on the table top acts as a
work stop. A squaring bar fits into a table slot to hold the workpiece during produc-
When the workpiece has been setup the table using either the pin work rest inserted
into the table top or the squaring bar inserted in a table slot resting against the pin rest,
move the table manually until the cut is started. Press the air control lever, located on
the left front of the table, enough to obtain the feed force desired. When the lever is
released, the feed force returns to zero and the table can be moved easily forward or
backward for loading or fixturing.
ADJUSTING TABLE STOPS
The work stops are located on the left hand edge of the table. They are adjusted by
loosening the lock nuts and sliding the stops to the desired position. Set the front
stop to control duplication of cut depth and the rear stop to minimize table travel.
ADJUSTING TABLE TILT
Table tilt is used primarily when sawing compound angles. To tilt the table, loosen
the lock nut with the wrench provided and tilt the table manually until it is at the
desired angle. The amount of table tilt, maximum 6 degrees left and 45 degrees
right, is shown by the pointer and calibrated scale mounted on the trunnion. Next,
lock the table in position.
