The Kalamazoo Machine Tool C316 & C370 series cold saws feature a vertical column design that provides stable saw frame guidance and reduced vibration during sawing. The construction is said to provide increase rigidity, deliver improved blade life and enable cutting of larger solids. The machines can operate in a 90-degree cutoff mode for conventional sawing, and the saw frame can also be swiveled with the turn of a locking lever to angles ranging to 45 degrees left or 60 degrees right for miter sawing. The mitering device features a highly visible scale and is equipped with a preset stop for accurately returning to zero. The C316 series saw features a 12-1/2" blade, while the C370 features a 14" blade. Both models are available with completely manual operation, or manual sawing operation with a quick-clamping air vise.
