SUPERIOR AUXILIARY SAW
A new model, embodying all of the more essential features of a sawing and trimming machine in
a simplified design, planned to sell at a most attractive price. It uses the same saw blades and trim-
mer knives as the Superior Point-System Saw; the gauges and work holder are the same; the saw
spindle rotates in ball bearings, which is the same superior type of bearing as used in the larger
machine, the motor and motor base are identical with the equipment used for the Superior Point-
System Saw, and the Auxiliary Saw also has the same important advantage of a large table, which
may be elevated for plain sawing and under cutting. On the Auxil-
iary Saw the table is level in normal or any elevated position.
An auxiliary to composing and casting machines in the small or
large plant. It saws and trims-at one operation-slugs, rules and
borders to smooth, point-system exactness.
An auxiliary to the platemaker in trimming and mortising cuts
to point-system dimensions.
An auxiliary to the de luxe model general utility Superior Point-
System Saw-or any other saw-trimmer of all-purpose
type-in plants requiring several machines. About 95
per cent of the use of a saw is in sawing and trimming
typeslugs and strip material, and trimming and mortis-
ing cuts. The Superior Auxiliary Saw does all such work as well
as the highest priced universal machine-and does it quicker,
better and with more of safety for the operator than many sold
at a much higher price.
Elevating Table-with the table horizontally level at any height.
Large 20-inch by 16-inch Table-12% inches to the left of the blade, which
balances full 24-inch strips.
Main Gauge-60 picas long, divided by 6 points-Point Auxiliary Gauge
affording any desired variation.
Work Holder that takes a sure grip on the work and holds fast.
Ball Bearings-easy running-only 1-horsepower motor to drive-mini-
mum power expense. Attaches to lamp socket-no wiring expense to install.
Convenient Push Button Start and Stop-Motor on adjustable belt tighten-
ing base-long belt for maximum power with minimum wear on bearings-
motor protected by steel hood.
Hollow Pedestal to catch the oficuts and sawdust-door in pedestal holds
waste until ready to remove, keeping floor clean.

With the Superior Auxiliary Saw the following items are included
as the regular equipment:
One Trimmer Head with 3 Knives, Plugs and Set Screws for Knives
