Safety at Your Fingertips
By keeping your hands away from cutting edges, our AF308 Cabinet Feeder upholds Co-matic’s reputation for setting and maintaining high standards in woodworking safety while still remaining easy to use.
Made for Compatibility
This feeder is an all-purpose feeder intended for use with cabinetry. The AF308 may be mounted for use with various fences and wood machinery, the most common of which are shapers. For heavy duty table saw setups, the Saw-Mate, EZ300, or EZ400 can also be considered. For smaller workpieces, the Track Feeder is recommended. For bandsaws or resaws, the AF19 and AF110N Resaw Feeders are recommended.
Keep Workpieces Stable
Our roller spring suspension design generates friction and pressure on the workpiece. Workpieces with minor variations in thickness of up to 24mm (15/16″) are easily compensated via a roller spring left mechanism.
Even Feed RateA continuous duty 1/2 horsepower motor provides the feed, ensuring that your feed rate is consistent and reliable. Actual feed rates are subject to blade sharpness, cutter rotational direction, and workpiece characteristics.
Feed Speed Control
Speed settings can easily be adjusted depending on your requirements. With a range of eight speeds, the AF308 provides options to suit your stock feeding needs.
Reverse direction of the feed at any time. Ensure the utmost care when doing so, as reverse feeding without proper precautions can result in risk of injury or death.
Some workpieces require climb-cutting, a risky technique, to reduce tearout for smoother cuts. Although not intended as a safety device for climb-cutting, a power feeder may assist with keeping your hands away from the cutting piece.
Our motors are designed and engineered so that motor damage through regular use is extremely rare. Solidly built and dependable, these motors ensure that the feeder operates as per your requirements.
Simple Wheel Replacements
The rubber or polyurethane rollers that come with the AF308 can be removed with a minimum of effort. Replacement rollers can be purchased separately, with replacement times dependent on roller material, rate of use, and workpiece material.
A conveniently placed oil plug allows for easy replacement of oil in the oil-bath gear box. Under standard operation, it is recommended that the oil is replaced every 200 days.
Robust Mount and Stand
The AF308 Cabinet Feeder comes equipped with sturdy cast-iron vertical and horizontal support columns and universal joints that feature a “T” or “L” locking mechanisms for securing feeders into horizontal, vertical or angled-feeding positions. (US01 Light Duty Universal Stand, US02 Light/Heavy Duty Universal Stand, US13 Heavy Duty Universal Stand)
Fully adjustable support columns are built with large hand wheels, which move feeders horizontally or vertically along columns. Four bolts hold vertical support column to table surface.
