Stable-compact-precise, the Hammer saw aggregate

The Hammer saw aggregate impresses with smoothness, precision and extreme user friendliness. The large cutting height of 103 mm leaves nothing to be desired. Saw blades with up to 315 mm diameter can be lowered completely below the level of the saw table. The saw blade is simple to access and can be changed with ease.

Saw blade tilt 90°–45°

The blade can be tilted to any position between 90° and 45° and guarantees precise mitre cuts. End stops at the 90° and 45° position ensure the exact positioning of the settings, a large dimensioned scale makes the exact setting and reading of the value easy.

Grooving, slot and tenoning with the saw

Every hammer panel saw can be equipped with a prepartion for the use of specialised dado tooling. The dado tool can be fitted to the saw arbour and makes it possible to make various width grooves, tenons and slots of between 8 and 19.5 mm in width.

Scoring unit for laminated workpieces

The scoring unit ensures chip free cuts in laminated workpieces. The cutting width of the two part scoring blade can be adjusted accurately to the tooth width of the main saw blade using a ring set. The drive of the scoring blade is done mechanically, with it rotating in the opposite direction to the main saw blade.

The Format Sliding Table

The perform models are equipped with a large, heavy-duty format sliding table that will withstand heavier loads. The smooth and precise guiding system guarantees accurate cross, mitre and ­format cuts.

The Hammer saw/spindle table, made from solid cast iron

Totally vibration-free and therefore absolutely precise when sawing and moulding - the saw/spindle table made from solid cast iron has strong ribbing and is completely torsion-resistant. The table opening of 180 mm diameter makes it possible to use large diameter tools below the table surface level.

Outrigger Table

The solidly built outrigger table with a large usable surface area and telescopic crosscut fence assists in the precise processing of timber and panels, whether it be panel sizing, rip cutting or cross cutting with no limitations on the dimensions of the workpiece.  

Index plunger

Angles at 5 degree intervals and at 22.5° may be cut using the index locating pins.

Solid Rip Fence

The professional rip fence is guided on a large round bar; it runs smoothly and is simple to use. You can quickly and precisely set the ­required ­measurements with the help of the fine ­adjustment system.

Crosscut fence for precise mitre cuts

Adjustable to any position between +45° and –45°, the crosscut fence ensures precise angled and mitre cuts. A scale integrated into the aluminium sliding table makes it easy to set precisely. The end stop for the 90° position guarantees absolute precision with repeat settings. The scale on the 900 mm long aluminium crosscut fence is angled towards the operator and makes it easy to comfortably read the exact setting. In combination with the crosscut stop with integrated magnifying glass, highly precise settings and as such absolutely exact results are guaranteed.

Stability and operating smoothness - the Hammer spindle moulder unit

High precision with standard moulding work or use of heavy tools - The Hammer spindle moulder unit guarantees extreme smoothness and precision. The spindle diameter is 30 mm. The ergonomically laid out operating elements and the smooth tool change convinces with every application, day after day. Four well spaced, selectable speeds, 3,000/6,000/8,000 and 10,000 rpm, cover the optimum speeds of various different spindle tool diameters with ease. An important detail is standard with Hammer: the forward and reverse run of the spindle for your safety when moulding.

Strong motors - Optimal power transmission

The power transmission of the motor power to the saw arbour or moulder spindle is achieved using large dimensioned Poly-V belts and counter surface. The surface area which is increased through the V shape of the drive belt on the pulley increases the grip and ensures an almost perfect transmission of power from the motor to the saw arbour and moulder spindle.


Standard: Moulder spindle Ø 30 mm for standard moulding tools. Ideal for "classic" moulding. The high performance main spindle guarantees excellent results at every angle regardless of the material.

Your Felder spindle tilts ­“rearward” for operational comfort and the additional following ­reasons:

  • Safety, as there is no pinch point
  • Suitable for any workpiece size
  • Problem-free power feeder application
  • Impeccable machined surface
  • Optimal chip removal

  • MF Spindle shaft quick change system

    With just a couple of turns of your hand, the spindle shaft can be swapped with varying diameters, without losing any of the settings.

    Spindle fence: simple handling, maximum safety and precision

    The Hammer spindle fence is suitable for tools with a diameter up to 220 mm. Both of the anodised aluminium fences can be easily set to the spindle moulder tool diameter being used. The adjustment for the depth of cut when moulding can be made on the outfeed fence plate with a range of –5 mm und +25 mm. The extraction connection diameter for the chip extraction on the fence is 120 mm. As an option, safety bars can be fitted into the aluminium fence for a continuous surface support and offer even more safety when moulding.

    Multi fine adjustment system

    Professional equipment: “220” spindle fence for max. tooling diameter 220 mm, MULTI adjustment system for spindle fence “220” enabling parallel alignment and quick setup

    Safety bar guides

    The safety bar guides are great for end-grain work (optional).

    As an option: Adapt the table size to the workpiece dimension

    Processing long and heavy workpieces without assistance - no problem with a Hammer! The Hammer table extension system has proven itself thousandfold, the world over. In just a few steps and without tools the table extensions can be mounted to every Hammer machine. The surface can be extended by 400 or 800 mm on each side of the working table. Which means that it is possible to increase your table length by up to 1600 mm!

    Minimal space requirement - mobile in every workshop

    Hammer woodworking machines are an absolute spatial wonder. The efficient machine design of a Hammer means that space can be found in even the smallest of workshops. As an option a rolling carriage can be fitted to every Hammer, offering mobility and freeing up additional space.
