Cutting-Edge TwinLaser™ System Beams Delta Into A League Of Its Own

Cutting-Edge TwinLaser™ System Beams Delta Into A League Of Its Own

JUNE 20, 2002 – NEW YORK CITY, NY – Delta Machinery launched today a one-of-a-kind 12” compound miter saw with laser –Delta model 36-255L – during a press conference at the Hotel InterContinental in New York City. Product Manager Mark Keller said, “This saw incorporates an adjustable TwinLaser™ system that shows the exact line of cut on either side of the blade kerf, at any angle, bright enough for outdoor use, with or without the need to have the blade in motion. Combined with the user-friendly features in all Delta compound miter saws, the model 36-255L will certainly stand in a category by itself.”

Beginning with a powerful 15 amp, 120 volt motor (3500 rpm), the model 36-255L offers the maximum cutting power available in the market. A large bevel scale and miter lock design provides speed and convenience. Quick tilt settings are simple thanks to a large bevel scale with adjustable positive stops at 0º and 45º. Other lock features include a quick-action miter lock for faster miter settings and a built-in arbor lock for smooth, single wrench blade changes. Moreover, the miter scale features nine positive stops for amazingly accurate cuts every time. An attached dust bag collects fine dust particles and woodchips.

Performance and comfort features complete the model 36-255L. A patented base design is convenient for either bench or job site 2x4 sawhorse mounting. An electric blade brake automatically stops in seconds, providing less waiting and more cutting. Sliding fences adjust for increased work support, and are extra tall for handling large work pieces or cutting crown molding on edge instead of flat on the table. A large, easy-grip handle is positioned horizontally to reduce operator fatigue and provide better control during operation. Additionally, a see-thru blade guard covers the 40-tooth carbide-tipped blade at all times, and automatically retracts after each cut.

Geared toward applications such as framing, decking, chair railing, trim work, and cabinetry, the model 36-255L comes complete with a premium 40T carbide-tipped blade, integrated left work extension, retractable blade guard, dust bag, wrenches, and operating manual. The unit will be available on the market in the fourth quarter of 2002, and is expected to sell for $350-$400.
