|What Students Learn:
Power cutting tools fall into two categories: portable and stationary. Portable and stationary cutting tools perform many similar operations, but portable tools, carried easily by hand, are used most often at the job site. Stationary tools are used in workshops and on plant tools. Stationary saws range in size from small shop jigsaws to huge band saws used in paper mills to saw large trees into lumber. This unit introduces students to the most common portable power saws used in construction and repair work, namely circular, saber, jig-, and reciprocating saws, and the stationary cutting tools found in most maintenance and fabrication shops.
When a student completes this study unit, he and she will be able to:
Power Saw Safety; Portable Power Saws; Stationary Circular Power Saws; Other Stationary Power Saws.
