Powermatic contractor table saws are an economic alternative to full sized table saws. Powermatic contractor table saws are an economic alternative to full sized table saws and are a great choice for general contractors, hobbyists and smaller shops. When combined with a Powermatic Accu-Fence system, these saws can handle the same sized stock and offer the same precision as larger, more expensive cabinet saws. Their 3VX style drive belt increases the saws efficiency and reduces vibration, resulting in extreme stability and more consistent accuracy.
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.
