The 979 Miter Saw was designed to cut doorstops and casing including brick mould at a rate of up to 40 pieces a minute. Out hopper feed system accommodates most casing profiles up to 3-1/2” wide and lengths from 12” to 98”. Saw motors are 3 HP, 3450 RPM, 3 phase units, and arbors are 3/4” with 10” blades. Pieces are fed from the hopper by a reciprocating dog system. The feed dog arms on each carriage are splined together to guarantee parallel indexing of work pieces underneath the saw blade.
