So I just bought a slightly used Northtech NT-CS14R-53 upcut saw to use in place of my miter saw (and Fast Cap bench mount Best Fence system) for cutting face frame and door parts in my cabinet shop. It even came with two 12ft extensions for the sides, one left and one right. I am going to assume that the blade will need to be replaced. I still have to order a new blade for it, get the air lines ran, and find a phase converter. The motor is a 5HP 230v and I plan to use a rotery phase converter on it. I have never used an upcut saw before. Do you guys have any advice for me on tips, tricks, ect. for using this machine? Can anyone suggest a good blade and a place to buy one? What would be a good manual stop block system to use on this? I want something that will untilize the 12ft extensions. I won’t be using my Fast Cap Best Fence system on it because that is going on my job site miter saw stand. Any advice?

I could be wrong but my guess you won’t find many people here with uncut saws. At least I haven’t seen any threads on up cut saws. Not to send traffic to other forums but I’d post your question on the woodwebs professional cabinet making forum.
