8 STEPS Woodworking Tips For Using Radial Arm Saw

Step 3: Difference Between Pushing and Pulling

The saw blade of the equipment is made to cut through the wood with ease. But you have to learn the fact that you need to do a forward motion once you align the wood to the teeth of the saw. However, the physics of the equipment and the wood shows that the sawdust will spread throughout the area due to the fast speed of the machine once it cuts down the wood. This means that if you push the wood to the teeth, the friction will cause the sawdust to go to you. So be sure to wear some mask and goggles if you’re comfortable with pushing the wood. Otherwise, be sure to pull the wood instead. However, it will take a bit of practice for you to do it comfortably.
