Unlike a crosscut which goes against the grain, a rip cut goes with the grain of the stock. Rip saw blades are designed to work more like a chisel, using straight teeth as opposed to the standard angled teeth of a cross cut blade. This tooth configuration allows the blade to stay straight rather than be inclined to follow the uneven grain. Powermatic has taken the idea of a specialized blade one step further with their specialized rip saws. In addition to the specialized blade, they combine a caterpillar conveyor feed system, anti kick-back measures and an extra powerful drive motor for precise and quick rip cuts in large stock.
