Both the sawblade and cup wheel are mounted on the same end of a 11/4" diameter, belt-driven stainless steel shaft to maximize stability and consistency. A 5" precision cutoff saw, combined with a fine-tunable 6" grinder adjustable to micrometer thinness, ensures topnotch cutting performance while precision angular-contact bearings conform to exacting tolerances and offer years of trouble-free service.
The vacuum holds the slides to either side of the chuck plate; a quick flip of a valve, and the vacuum switches from the saw to cut off any excess. The chuck plate holds standard 27 x 46 mm petrographic slides. Dual valves direct the coolant flow to either the sawblade or the cup wheel. A user’s manual is included.
Accessories information: Vacuum and coolant systems and a coolant trap, required, are available separately.
