Saws are power tools that are used across all occupations, from HVAC to carpentry and woodworking, as well as general contract work. As a result, saws come in various sizes and with different types of blades. Some saws are needed to make fine cuts, such as with a jigsaw or tile saw, or others are needed to cut through metal and large pieces of wood. Instead of having a one-size-fits-all for contracting and industrial jobs, many types of saws exist for specific jobs and occupations. PowerTools.us carries twelve different kinds of saws for various jobs by well-known power tool manufacturers Hitachi, Makita, Campbell Hausfeld, and All Power.
As saw blades some in various sizes, one common type of saw blade is a circular saw blade. Circular saws come in large and small sizes, some for specialized jobs such as a tile saw. Our selection of circular saws includes lightweight and cordless models that are made for doing quick cuts through most materials. In some cases, circular saws use a magnesium blade to be lightweight. Some specific types of circular saws also include masonry saws, chop saws, miter saws, and cutting saws.
Saws also have horizontal blades in large and small sizes. A jigsaw is an example of a small, horizontal blade saw. Jigsaws are used for fine cutting jobs and, for an accurate cut, many jigsaws by Hitachi and Makita use anti-vibration technology and LED lights. Jigsaws, in addition, come with multiple, interchangeable blades for an accurate cut. Reciprocating saws are similar to jigsaws, only with a larger blade size, and have the same type of anti-vibration properties. On the opposite end of saw size, table saws have a large blade. A table saw, such as the kind of offer, is often freestanding or portable. For cutting large pieces of wood with a smooth cut, a table saw is ideal for the job.
A saw typically is used for a straight cut, but what if you need to create a cut into a piece of wood or metal at a specific angle? Two types of saws that allow you to create an angled cut are chop saws and miter saws. Both of these saws are portable. Chop saws, on the other hand, allow users to saw into the wood up to a 45-degree angle, while a miter saw can be supported on a stand – also available in our store – to create a cut at any number of angles and heights.
Generally, saws are associated with cutting wood, but some saws are made for cutting specific materials or through certain surfaces. For metal, band saws and cutting saws are common, with the latter a circular saw used for cutting through larger pieces of metal and the former used for piping, HVAC, and plumbing jobs. Other types of specialized saws include tile saws, a wet saw with a changeable water coolant bottle attached to the saw; compound miter saws, which are used for woodworking and combine a radial saw with a standard miter saw; hypoid saws, which are made for framers, roofers, and carpenters to cut through engineered, dimensional, and wet wood, as well as panels; and masonry saws, which are often needed to cut through stone, brick, and larger tiles.
