Hendrick Manufacturing introduces the Hendrick ProCut vertical panel saw combining a lightweight yet rigid frame with a moving column for full vertical panel saw functionality in a highly compact, cost-effective package, says the company. The saw head is mounted on the moving column via a custom-designed turntable mounting plate, allowing users to easily switch from cross cutting to rip cutting. The mounting plate also allows for the quick and easy removal of the saw head, either to use it as a traditional hand-held circular saw, or to fit the optional router head, which is available, with "floating" capability. This feature is ideal for constant depth grooving. The ProCut offers plunge capability (to in excess of 1.5" depth) and the saw can also bevel cut (up to 45 degrees). ProCut has a cutting capacity of up to 5' by 10' with other sizes available.
