What Makes the Semi-Automatic Cross Cut Saws Different?
MOST IMPORTANTLY, SAFETY FEATURES. This saw was designed with safety features in mind.
Lexan Polycarbonate Enclosed Cutting Area
Lexan covers the top of the saw. The operator’s hands are kept away from the blade inside by the totally enclosed cutting area.
Semi-Automatic Cutting Feature
Push button on the front of the machine use is what makes this Cross Cut Saw special. The controls are easily accessible and housed on the front panel of the machine. Simply clamp the material either manually or pneumatically and push the button. The blade travels forward under the enclosed Lexan top to cut the material. The adjustable stops on the right side of the machine control the carriage stroke. Because of the stops, the blade doesn’t travel farther than needed. Consequently, this time saving feature can increase your production and efficiency.
What Kind of Material Can Be Cut?
A Cross Cut Saw can easily cut through wood and wood products, composite material and plastic. Individual pieces of wood can be cut or wood can be stacked and cut.
Who Uses a Cross Cut Saw?

Do You Need Test Cuts?
Are you unsure if this machine can cut your material? Ask about sending your material to Original Saw for sample cuts. First, we make the cuts in our shop. While doing the cuts, a video is recorded. Next, the videos are sent to you. Afterwards, you review the cuts before the purchase. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (800) 733-4063 to start the process.
Any Other Recommendations?
Yes. We recommend outfitting your saw with our Extension Tables for safe support of your material on the right and left sides. Extension Tables are available as flat tables or roller tables. Tables can be joined together to make longer sections. Plus, Measuring Systems can be added to your saw and tables and, as a result, make a complete cutting station.
