The Ci1 Easy Roughers are capable of plunge cuts similar to using a giant parting tool. This type of cut sends massive amounts of material straight back at the operator. Because of the almost overwhelming amount of spray possible we recommend the use of the 1700 Deflector.
You won't regret having it in place. Primarily used on the Ci1, but fits any of Easy Wood's tools with 1/2" wide blades. USA
Note: The Deflector was designed to be looked over, rather than through, and is not a substitute for proper eye protection.
