How Does A Power Saw Work?
Cutting wood using a power saw will result in cutting several times more than a hand would cut. Power saw cuts would look better, and they will even be more accurate. There are different sizes of power saws starting with the very small ones which are light as a feather to the large powers saws weight about 34 pounds. A small power saw will still do the job you want to be done. A reasonably priced power saw will cut deeper and will suffice the whole amount of the job you want to do. Even if you want your power saw to cut deeper you can turn it so that you cut through to the other cut on the other side.
If you are doing some small jobs in your home or an apartment, a 4″ diameter power saw is enough. With a 4′ diameter power saw you should cut wood that is 5.4″ Power saws have adjustable guides and different types of blades.
Confirm the distance between the power source and the power saw plug-in. To prevent a drop in power voltage, use an extension cord with a long wire if you will be working from a far off distance. In case you are working from distances of 35′ then using a No.14 or heavier wire should be adequate. If you are working from a distance of 100′, then No.12 wire or heavier can be used. If you want to cover all distances ensure you have bought all the different extension cords.
Do not underestimate a light-duty power saw. With your light-duty power saw you could cut wood pieces as you mark and measure them or cut them one by one. You can also first mark all of them and cut them all at once. Don’t force your power saw to work, instead enforce a steady and easy pressure. After you determine that your power saw is at its full speed after starting it, start cutting the wood. You are only supposed to guide the power saw. Insert a wedge or a screwdriver if you notice the blade is blinding the wood, this will keep the cut open. Don’t forget to support your work because any movement will deflect the cut from the line guiding it.
The motor of your power saw should not overheat. In case of too much heating up of the power saw, discontinue sawing. Your power saw motor would be damaged if you allow it to continue heating up. Keep an extra sharp and clean blade and clean your power saw blade using kerosene.
