Headcutter miter Attachment

Headcutter Miter AttatchmentThis attachment clamps to any chain saw in seconds transforming it into a giant vertical cutting jigsaw. It is laterally angularly adjustable through 75˚ from vertical. It has a wide sturdy base plate which fully supports the weight of the saw through its angular range and provides excellent stability for accurate freehand cuts with a long cutting bar.

This in combination with a large opening in the base plate and the U-shaped chain bar clamp located will behind the upper cutting edge of the chain bar provide an unobstructed view of the cutting chain as it is applied to the wood. With the HEADCUTTER the operator can easily guide the chain saw to follow a snap-line or scribed arc making it the perfect “framer’s” tool for gang cutting ganged lumber, beams placed on edge, structural insulated roof panels, etc. beyond the reach of most circulars.
