M18/M2 PART NUMBER 012L : Quick Release Tension Rod
M18/M2 PART NUMBER 012L :
Quick Release Tension Rod - TENSION ROD, LEVER TOP STYLE
This quick-release tension rod is now standard on new Multimax 14-E models. (A heavy-duty version is standard on our commercial production model, the Polymax.)
The further good news: this part is easily retrofitted to earlier 14" and 18" HEGNER Multimax models which lack a quick tension-release mechanism. If you own a Multimax-2, Multimax 14-E, Multimax 14-S, Multimax 14-V, or a Multimax 18-V without the front tension-release system (1993 and earlier), you can instantly upgrade your saw to add this highly desirable feature!
This new tensioning system simply replaces your old nob-style rod, and takes only minutes to install.
Set tension exactly the same way as with your old tension rod: it can be loosened or tightened even with the machine running at full speed. But instead of uncranking and then re-tightening the knob for each blade change, you simply flip up the lever to fully release the tension, change the blade, then just flip the lever back into horizontal position to apply tension, and you're good to go!
Installs in only minutes using 3mm Allen wrench.
