Table Tilt Lock

A table tilt lock is a locking mechanism used on band saw or other cutting tool tables, designed to securely hold the table in a desired tilt angle during angled or bevel cuts. The table tilt lock typically consists of a locking handle, lever, or knob that clamps the table to the base or trunnion, preventing unwanted movement during cutting. Proper adjustment and tightening of the table tilt lock are essential for maintaining accurate, consistent cutting performance during angled cuts.
