Why Use a Table or Site Saw?
A traditional woodworking tool that comes equipped with a round blade ideal for breaking through wooden surfaces and splitting planks, a saw has many different purposes or uses depending on your exact needs or requirements. Providing additional efficiency, practical design elements and space-saving size in many cases, this piece of machinery is essential for many.
Whether you're working in construction and require an on-site machine for cutting wood and similar materials; or you perform woodworking in your workplace and are in need of an automatic device to take care of part of your process - or even if you're a hobby woodworker - there are many reasons why you may need to introduce a table saw into the space that you work in.
In any modern saw, you can provide a great deal of control in the way you work with wood, from precise cuts at specific depths to only cutting wood to a specific length. This method of woodworking provides you with all you need to create wooden floorboards, cut raw materials down to size or simply create particular shapes for a unique design or item.
From the creation of furniture to the development of artwork and sculpture, there is a multitude of uses for a saw - and those with tables provide the extra stability you need for the cutting and construction of larger objects and materials, without the risk of the wood or blade slipping or moving during the cutting process. This is ideal for permanent locations such as factories or woodworking studios.
A site saw combines this practicality in a more portable format that makes it the perfect solution for on-site work, as the name suggests. Often created with foldable or removable legs and a base, this form of saw can be utilised in the same manner as a standard saw without the problem with moving a heavy piece of equipment once you've finished with it, or when you need to travel to your next job.
