Blade Types. Rip vs. Crosscut blades the two basic types of table saw blades are rip and crosscut blades. Rip blades have a smaller number of teeth and larger gullets, which means there's more room to remove the shavings and dust. These blades are designed to cut along the grain of the material on the table, but although they cut faster, the resulting cuts are rougher.
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.
In Conclusion. As you can see there is not much to making rip, cross, or compound cuts. Using the fence and miter gouge is something you can get the hang of very quickly. But as easy as it is, the biggest mistake you can make is to become complacent when using a table saw. Remember you are handling a very powerful tool with an incredibly sharp blade that rotates at several thousand RPM. Always make sure to follow the safety measures, and you will be fine.
