    Radial arm saw is one of the most accurate, versatile and easy to use woodworking machine. This machine is ideal for cross cutting, bevel cutting of most hard and soft woods. A radial arm saw is a cutting machine consisting of a circular saw mounted on a sliding horizontal arm. The radial arm saw was the primary tool used for cutting long pieces of stock to length until the introduction of the power miter saw. In addition to making length cuts, a radial arm saw may be configured with a dado blade to create cuts for dado, rabbet or half lap joints. In addition some radial arm saws allow the blade to be turned parallel to the back fence, allowing a rip cut to be performed. The cutters used are high carbon steel and High speed steel.
