It is so easy to use, that even untrained or new operators will master it in minutes.

Changing blades & tools is easy with the Indexed Turret, (mounted on sliding head) which simply turns to lock any one of three cutting tools in its selected operating position. With no screws to loosen or tools to find, changing blades has never been easier.

The Excalibur 5000 Cutter features a One Piece Squaring Arm. This horizontal squaring arm is machined from one single heavy duty aluminum extrusion so that both the left and the right are in perfect alignment with each other. The Vertical Cutting Bar and the surface of the material being cut have no gap when clamped down. It is steel re-enforced and won't bend or flex when cutting dense thick materials like 1/2" Sintra Board and Gatorboard. The Pressure Sensitive Clamp provides light clamping that gives the user the ability to line up the board to hold the position, but allows it to be positioned under the clamp for final alignment. The Cutting Line Indicator is a clear plastic strip located along the left side of the vertical cutting bar that accurately indicates the cut line. This Multi-Purpose cutter also features Ratchet Control, which allows you to cut dense materials in multiple passes. Two Flip Stops can be engaged or disengaged without disturbing the settings. Accurate cutting by eye is made simple by the dual calibrated scales. The Counter Balance takes the effort out of lifting the cutting head. When released, the balanced cutting head stays in the last position ready for the next operation. The counter balance weight can be transferred to the upper or lower cutting head with the flip of a switch. Mounted to the wall at the top end only, two adjustable legs can adjust upon installation to suite the height of the user. A Squaring Adjuster Wheel is located at the Vertical Cutting Bar, and provides easy and accurate 90° squaring adjustments. Large Back Panels on both sides of the machine give maximum support to the material being cut.
