A Blast from the Past
The Bosch 14-Inch Abrasive Cut-Off Machine comes with superior motor insulation to protect from overload during rough cutting tasks. The abrasive wheel is on the right side and spins anti-clockwise to toss sparks into wheel guard. The motor is not brushless, and also lacks electric brakes. Motor carbons are accessible from outside and you can change them without having to open the whole system.
A lock-on button is located right above the trigger switch, which is a convenient option to release the stress on a finger during long cutting operations. There is a spindle lock for quick and easy wheel changes. Depth settings are easy to apply with the “depth stop adjustment bolt” and a “lock nut”. It has a built-in handle so you can carry it without any carrying case. Just hook up the chain and you are ready to go.
Powerful and Durable
All mechanical tools require proper care if you want them to last for a long time including lubricating the gears at every brush change. This Bosch 3814 metal cutting saw is engineered with cut and hardened helical-cut steel gears. They are more efficient, durable and strong than straight gears. The depth of cut is 6-inch in any metal stuff and this tool weighs 42.0 pounds. An adjustable fence with this cut-off tool can bevel between 0° and 45° and “locking vise” with quick release lever firmly holds the material for efficient cutting and reduced slips.
There is an onboard scale on “vise stop” for accurate angle adjustments. You can use crank for minor adjustments or pull a lever to release the screw shaft. There is an onboard wrench storage area for convenient access while changing a wheel. This tool is decades old and manually adjusted, mostly with a wrench but it is solid and heavy-duty robust power tool.
