Chop saw + mitre saw

The electric crosscut and mitre saw is a special circular saw. The machine is used especially when many workpieces have to be cut to the same length or mitred, i.e. cut at an angle. The chop saw is therefore less flexible, but makes more accurate cuts than a hand-held circular saw. Chop saws are commonly used by hobbyists and do-it-yourselfers to cut wood short. Unlike a stationary table saw, the chop saw is much handier and easier to transport. In a workshop where the machine needs to get to the work piece, this is the tool to use. The machine cuts the wood in vertical (optionally also in horizontal) direction to the workpiece. For the sawing of the workpiece provides a circular saw blade, which are available for purchase in different designs.
