b. Crosscutting. Crosscutting is done by placing the board flat
on the table with one edge against the backrest. The saw blade
should be pulled evenly through the material. Lower the saw only
enough to cut through the board.
c. Ripsawing. Ripsawing is very similar to the table saw, except
that the saw blade is above instead of below the work. When ripping
a board, feed it along the table making sure the teeth of the blade
revolve toward the operator.
d. Bevels and Angles. Bevels and angles are cut in much the same
manner as crosscutting. The head of the saw can be rotated or tilted
to various angles. The procedures apply for crosscutting and ripping.
