    There are numerous saw types used to complete types of jobs depending on the material used as well as the desired result. Circular saws are circular blades, no larger than 24”, used as a handheld or in mills that are designed to cut material such as wood, stone, brick, or plastic. Tablesaws are tables mounted with a slotted circular blade. If the saw is small enough to set on a workbench, it is called a “workbench” or “jobsite” saw. If the saw is fastened on steel legs, it’s called a “contractor” saw. Heavier and more precise table saws, driven by several belts with an enclosed base stand are called “cabinet” saws. Radial arm saws are versatile machines that are mainly used for cross-cutting material. Rotary saws or “spiral-cut” saws are used for making accurate cuts, in materials such as wallboard and plywood, without using a pilot hole. Electric miter saws or “chop” saws are used for making accurate cross and miter cuts. A miter cut is an angled cut made across the face or width of a board. Concrete saws, typically fitted with diamond blades, are used for cutting materials like concrete, asphalt, and pavement. Pendulum saws or “swing” saws are saws hung on a swinging arm and used for rough crosscutting. Abrasive saws are circular or reciprocating saw-like tools fastened with an abrasive disc, rather than a toothed blade, used to cut resistant materials. Jigsaw or “saber” saws are narrow-bladed saws used for cutting irregular shapers. Reciprocating saws use an in-and-out or up-and-down action similar to a jigsaw, creating large, irregular shapes. Bandsaws are ripsaws that use a motor-driven continuous band. Ripsaws are used to cut wood alongside its grain.
