Different Saws for Different Jobs

For a number of do-it-yourself jobs and cutting different types of wood, having certain saws can be very beneficial. Though a saw is meant to cut through objects, certain ones are better suited for different jobs. Below are a few of the most common saw choices and their uses. 

Hand Saw

A regular hand saw is a traditional form of saw. It is composed of a handle and a blade, and the width of the blade determines its stiffness. There are a few different types of hand saw options, including the following:

  • Coping saw
  • Crosscut saw
  • Hacksaw
  • Keyhole/pad/jab saw
  • Rip saw

With the variety of choices, a hand saw could be used for a number of things, from grinding down tree stumps to cutting holes and intricate designs.

Back Saw

The back saw is a specific subcategory of the hand saw. These versions tend to be thinner than regular hand saws but are stabilized with a stiffened rib piece. As such, the depth of the cut is limited, so they are mostly used for shallow cuts.

Power Saw

Powered saws can have a number of power sources, be it electricity, batteries or an engine. They usually fall within one of the following categories: 

  • Circular blade saw
  • Reciprocating blade saw
  • Continuous band saw

By knowing the different types of saws, you can be sure to select the right one for your needs. Call (800) 603-6887 today for more information about saws available at Copper State.
