A table saw also referred to as a saw-bench is a sawing tool designed for woodworking. This type of saw includes a circular blade, installed on a table and is driven by an electric motor. The saw blade can be modified up or down to determine the depth of the cut.
The saw blade can even be tilted laterally to control the cutting angle. A rip guide is placed on the table. The rip guide is a barrier which can be placed closed to or farther away from the blade.
