Also, table saws are equally adept at making cross-cuts and other more complex cuts. Now, in order to do that they rely on something called a miter gouge. I will go on to explain this further down below, because knowing how to cut wood using a miter gouge will even allow you to make angled and compound cuts. If I'm using terms you're totally unfamiliar with, don't worry about it because I've explained everything for you.
Blade Materials. Diamond tipped masonry blades that are meant to cut plywood and hardwood are usually fabricated out of metal, but those that are designed to cut through harder materials require the use of even harder materials. The harder material is applied around the edge of the blade, with the metal core remaining intact.
Elevation and Tilt Wheels. Elevations and tilt hand wheel The blade elevation hand wheel is usually located on the front of the saw and allows you to control the height of the blade, which effectively controls the depth of cut. In the case of 10-inch blades, the blade should be exposed around 3-5/8 inches at its maximum height which is sufficient to cut through a 4 x 4 in a single pass.
Blade RPM. The maximum speed of a blade is usually expressed in RPM (revolutions per minute). One thing you need to look for is the speed of the table saw, which must never exceed the speed of the blade. Blades are designed to rotate at a certain speed, and using it on a table saw which exceeds that speed will cause the blade to break apart due to centrifugal force. This is pretty much everything you need to know about blades. If you decide you want to learn even more about blades and their properties, this should serve as a good base for you to build upon.
After you have penciled in a line where you want the cross-cut to be made, align it with the blade. With the saw turned on guide the miter gouge forward until the cut is made while making sure the board is firmly in place against the straight edge of the miter gouge. One of the simplest cuts a miter gouge allows you to make is a square cross-cut. Simply set the miter gouge at 90 degrees or zero (depending on the markings), and push the board toward the blade. The result will be a board that is cut square. You can also make angled cuts by setting the miter gouge at an angle of up to 45 degrees.
Fence and Miter Gouge Considerations Explained. Table saws are used primarily for ripping lumber, and in order to rip wood down to the desired width every table saw needs a fence. It's one of the most crucial components, so I thought the information below would come in handy for a lot of you.
Instead of having you scavenge the Internet for what seems like forever in order to get the information you're after, I decided to compile this guide which explains most table saw basics. I am not going into things like rip fence and saw blades because they require more attention (and are therefore discussed in separate articles elsewhere on this website), here we'll discuss the more basic stuff. So, without further ado, let's take a look at what you can expect to be included in the price on most models of table saw out there.
