AIGNER VECTRAL is a safety accessory for the sliding table saw.
The device replaces the aluminum profile of a standard rip fence and allows for the safe ripping of narrow workpieces. A handle at the front of the device controls a finger-like pawl that comes out from the fence line to safely push the workpiece through the cut. The pawl disappears back into the fence after the cut is made. It is sold exclusively through Martin Woodworking Machines and mounting parts are available for all major German-made sliding table saws. Contact: Martin Woodworking Machines Corp.
