KVAL's DL-2 Door Light Cut-Out Machine produces rectangular, curved, and multi-light cut-outs in wood or metal doors up to 16 gauge. Face boring is standard with a built-in steel template adjustable for backsets from 2-3/8” to 2-3/4”. The three-speed cutter head is supported by cross- mounted lineal bearing shafts for length and width travel.

This design eliminates cut-out templates for rectangular lights since adjustable stops can be locked directly on the shaft to limit cutter head travel. A numeric scale and ratcheting lock handles are provided to make the stops easy to adjust. For curved or multiple light cutouts, plywood templates slide into a holder 1/4" above the door. The same template can be used for 32” or 36” doors.

In operation, a door is rolled into the machine from the end until it indexes against a retractable doorstop. The clamp button brings in the adjustable fence to firmly sandwich the door against a fixed rail. With the touch of another button, the cutter head is lowered. The operator begins to manually move the cutter head carriage along the lineal bearing shafts to make the cut. During the cutting operation, the spindle automatically oscillates up and down 3/8” every second to guard against overheating the same part of the cutting tool, thus ensure even tool wear and longer tool life.

The pass line height of the DL-2 stands at 33-1/2”.
