What is a saw and how to use it

What is a saw?

The saw is a tool for cutting and sewing materials, for each material there is its own saw, there are saws for iron, saws for wood and saws for plastic. The teeth of the sawing tool, the number of teeth per centimeter, and the type of sawing tool material have special importance and specific specifications for the type of material to be used for it.

Types of saws:

hand saws

Hand saws take different shapes, but they all contain a holder for the sawing tool and a handle for a person to hold when sawing a material. 

automatic saws:

stone saw blade

Electric saws are a tool that is widely used in construction and finishing work for cutting materials such as wood (lawn pruning, thinning logs, cutting wood in boards), foam concrete, concrete, and even metal. To carry out all these operations, there are different types of electric saws, differing in their design and type of cutting tool.

How to use the electric saw?

Determine the type and size of saw you will need. These saws come in a variety of functions and in many sizes, so choose one that meets your needs. Here are some of the differences in these devices:

1- size. This is determined by the diameter of the blade, usually between 8 and 12 inches. The diameter of the saw blade will determine the width and thickness of the material you are cutting.

2- a job. There are three types of electric saw:

Standard band saw: A standard band saw makes a vertical cut through a board or other material at angles typically ranging from 45 degrees left (counterclockwise) to 45 degrees right (clockwise). The angle gauge and locking device keep the blade properly aligned.

3- Compound metric saw: Adds the ability to tilt the blade at a specified angle from the vertical to cut a compound angle.

Sliding Sliding Saw: The saw glides along a horizontal arm, similar to a radial arm saw. It can be pushed through the material being cut, allowing a much larger piece of stock to be cut.

4- Decide how much muscle your miter saw will need. In power tools, the ability to do the job for which the tool is designed is generally considered to be the tool’s current rating, or horsepower. The standard metric saw is designed to draw (use) between 12 and 15 amps or electrical power, and operates on 120 volts (in the US). To cut very hard or large pieces from stock, you may need to choose an industrial grade machine that is much heavier and may require special wires.

5- Set up a table or place the saw in an area where there is room to work. For cutting very long materials, you may find it necessary to work on the floor, but an improvised workbench or workbench makes operating the saw more comfortable.

6- Read the operator’s manual if it is available to the person you are using. The first section will be general safety rules such as wearing safety glasses, using the correct type of extension cord, and making sure the electrical power is sufficient for the device. Make sure you understand the requirements for the tool before operating as loaded electrical circuits can damage the saw or cause a fire in your workshop.

7- Learn about the different parts of the machine and the purpose of each. You should find an angle gauge and angle indicator at the front of the saw bed, a blade guard, a power switch or actuator, and a mechanism to lock the saw into position when not in use. Other features, such as laser guides, saw tilt gauges, and locking clamps to secure the workpiece vary from saw to saw.

8- Open or leave the saw so that the stock can rest on the saw bench and the blade will travel. Raise and lower the saw a few times before turning it on to get a feel for the path the blade is taking as you’ll see it through the stock. This will make it easier for you to avoid accidents when actually cutting with a chainsaw.

9- Attach the saw to a bowl and place a piece of cloth on the seat. cutting. Pieces that are too short without clips, and cutting near the end of the stock piece can allow the blade (the cut piece) to be thrown into the cut if complete.
