The model 120-BQ is a precision built universal cutting machine, capable of both through-feed and down-feed operation. A hydraulic retardant control is used for down feed operation. It eliminates run out and other cutting flaws. The blade pressure can be set at any requirement up to 20 pounds by positioning the counter balance weight. The down-travel of the blade rests at any desired position by adjusting positive depth stop.

The through-feed is secured using a ridged precision bearing rail and bearing blocks for smooth accuracy cutting large and small work pieces. (Bearings and rails are protected using bellows and scrapers.) The 120-BQ has a precision-built cartridge spindle quill assembly equipped with a ground taper that accepts a precision ground wheel adaptor preventing any wheel run out and reduces blade change over time.

The machine has either a 3 or 5 H.P. 220/480 volt motor that is mounted inside the rugged machine base. It is surrounded by stainless steel skirting as well as a stainless steel coolant tank and pan. The 120-BQ comes equipped with a lexan enclosure that allows light in and prevents water from escaping. All electrical components are mounted on the side of the machine in their own electrical enclosure. The 120-BQ is equipped to run a 14" blade. Special order will be accepted up to a 24" blade.

1 year warranty on all parts and workmanship.
