The Hercules Door Lite Cut-Out Machine, for rectangular curved and multi-lite cut-outs in wood, fiberglass or metal doors up to 16 gauge. Face boring is standard with a built-in steel template adjustable for backsets from 2 /8″ to 2-3/4″. The two speed cutter head is supported by cross mounted lineal bearing shafts for length and width travel.
This Design eliminates cut out templates for rectangular lites since adjustable stops can be locked directly on the shafts to limit cutter head travel. Scales and ratcheting lock handles are provided to make the stops.
In operation, a door is rolled into the machine from the end to a retractable doorstop. The clamp button brings in the adjustable fence to clamp the door firmly against the fixed fence. Another button lowers the cutter, and the operator manually moves the carriage along the lineal bearing shafts, to make the cut. During the cutting operation the spindle automatically move up and down 3/8″ every second, to avoid overheating and to ensure even tool wear.
