The TRF 527 is a double mitre saw suitable for cutting glass beading strips as well as other materials for mitres and straight cuts. The right head is fixed and the left head is moveable through a manual transmission system. A hand wheel combined with toothed belt allows the operator to adjust the head and read the measure on a mechanical display. The left head is positioned on ball bushings and slides on hardened steel guides, which makes the transition easy and precise. Both heads are equipped with two fences placed at different levels to allow the cutting of two strips at once. The intermediate fence can be removed to allow the cutting of one work piece of a larger cross section. The placement and removal, as well as clamping of the work piece, is made easier by two 90 degree pneumatic clamps. The system comes with two carbide tipped blades of 8.5" (220mm) diameter.
