Make a wide range of cuts using these radial arm saws. Move the yoke-mounted circular saw blade forward and backward along the arm to make cross cuts in workpieces that are too large to cut with a miter saw. The blade can be turned parallel to the workpiece for rip cuts, and it can be tilted for making angled cuts. The height of the saw can also be adjusted for making grooves and dado cuts. Most often used for cutting wood, some blades can also cut aluminum, plastic, and ceramic tile. These saws are not for use with steel and ferrous metals.
