Perpendicular cuts

By securing the blade, it is possible to set a cutting depth that corresponds to the cutting task. There are 13 positions to choose from, ranging from 0° to 90°. This results in a precise and even cutting depth without the need for rework. This even includes cutting tasks where the lower sheet side must not be cut through.


With the TruTool TPC 165, you can produce precise interior cutouts and notches effortlessly. This is possible in one press operation without the need to turn the panels. Clearly visible cutting markings ensure accurate cuts all along the cutting line. Additional table markings on the machine provide useful reference points for the blade insertion position.

Simple tool change

Replacing the chain and blade is quick and simple: Remove the protective cover, lift the saw chain with the blade out of the chain wheel, insert a new saw chain, and tighten. It is helpful and valuable to have the right combination wrench, kept in the machine and close at hand.
