Cyclone 600 Sawing Capacity Chart & General Specifications
The vertical stroke of the upcut saw blade requires that the workpiece be centered over the center line of
the blade to maximize thickness capacity. The fence is adjustable to accommodate the potential material
sizes as shown in the chart above. For best cut quality on thin stock the work piece should be toward the
rear of the saw. Adjust the position of the fence toward the rear of saw to optimize cut quality. See adjustment section for directions on adjustment of fence and squaring fence to blade after adjustment.
