Characteristics of table saws

The table saw is used to cut large pieces of wood and to cut other materials such as soft metals. It is important to choose the type of blade best adapted to the material to be worked. Other features are among the benefits of using this machine.

The blade of this saw is necessarily selected according to the material to be cut. Its height is adjusted to match the thickness of the part to be cut. Protective covers surround this blade with a diameter of between 190 mm and 315 mm, in order to optimize the safety of the user.

The power of the saw determines its ability to cut material. A tough material such as hardwood requires considerable power. In general, the machine is equipped with a single-phase or three-phase motor whose power ranges from 1000 to 3800 W or more.

The table, made of cast iron or aluminum, is generally one meter high for a length between 60 and 80 cm and a width ranging from 30 to 70 cm. To increase the useful area and improve the comfort of use, accessories such as the table extension are added.

The weight depends on the size, power, saw frame and table. It varies from one model to another.

The “miter cut” function exists when the position of the saw can be reversed for use on the table and not underneath. This makes it possible to do biased cuts between 0 and 90. In this case, the saw is equipped with an articulated arm allowing it to descend the workpiece while the table is equipped with a perfectly graduated turntable for extremely precise cut.
