Proxxon FET Saw

The Preac product line is no longer available.  We have just a few accessories left.  We continue to carry blades and belts and will assist owners with problems.

The Proxxon tilting arbor table saw  is now in our product line.   We are making jigs and fixtures for the Proxxon  saw and now use it in our classes.  So far,  the key to the transition is to be able to use the standard 2-1/4" x .028"  60 tooth Preac blade for smoothness of cut and a custom zero clearance insert to save small pieces from falling inside the table saw. We have made the adapter that is needed to convert the 5/8" hole to 10mm for the Proxxon and the zero clearance inserts.  Performance has been excellent.  We have these accessories in stock.

Most of the accessories that we used on the Preac are now available for the Proxxon.
