Radial arm crosscut saws offer ultimate flexibility
When it comes to versatility radial arm machines remain the ultimate choice. The sawing head is mounted on an arm protruding over the table and the operator manually pulls it across and through the workpiece. The main advantage is that compound angles can be cut by adjusting the angle of the arm and the tilt of the saw head. It should be noted however that this method of crosscutting can be dangerous if not carried out carefully.
Semi-automatic crosscutting for safe operation
An upstroke (or up cut) crosscut saw offers a safe working method for operators and should be considered when only 90° cuts are required. Two separate buttons are pressed by the operator to start the cutting cycle keeping hands well away from the saw blade. A clamp secures the material from above and the sawblade travels up through the material before returning to its home position safely inside the machine.
