Manufactured in thick gauge welded steel and cast iron to a very high standard, the AT3086B is fitted with a key released emergency stop switch and safety interlocked doors for safe operation. There is a convenient tool and accessory storage cupboard in the lower half of the chassis.
The upgraded electro-magnetically braked motor is robust, smooth and powerful enough for all workshop tasks. Features include balanced, cast iron wheels, heavy duty bearing blade guides throughout, and a very rigid, full size cast iron table with tilt adjustment of -5° to +45° carried out by a rack and pinion mechanism for ease of adjustment.
Blade changing is made easy with a quick release blade tensioning lever which speeds up the blade changing process greatly. The rip fence has a cast iron bracket and features a tall fence rail, which can also be fitted in a different position to allow thin work to be guided properly. A cam lock clamps the fence to the guide rail securely and there is a magnifying lens to make the scale easy to read. The included mitre fence is a precision unit, fitted with an indexed position stop pin for easy and precise angle setting. Dust extraction is via 2 x 100mm ports, enabling dust-free use when connected to a suitable extractor.
