What You Should Know About Miter Saw Cad
A chop saw or drop saw is a power tool used to make a quick crosscut in a piece of wood. It is used for cutting trim. Most saws are small and portable, with blade sizes ranging from eight to twelve inches.
The saw head moves so fast that it is almost impossible to kick-back, and the work piece is held against a fence so that hands are not allowed to get near the blade. The saw head is usually drawn back, then lowered and fed forward through the material so that binding is not a possibility. The main disadvantage is the poor wood chip and dust removal, as the blade is exposed when cutting, and this leads to a tendency for chips to fly.
While the blade sizes are interchangeable with table saws, a miter blade is designed for short cuts across the grain of the wood with little pull, where as table saws are designed for long rip cuts with the grain and pulling the material into the blade. Power saws have been available in various forms since the 1970s, but with limited width of cut, compared to radial arm saws. The saw table could pivot to allow for one plane cut.
