Are you an avid woodworker? Are you looking to see if it’s worth investing in more woodwork machinery to advance your craft? If you’re interested in delving further into the art of woodworking then you’re in the right place. Here at Calderbrook Woodworking Machinery, we’re dedicated to teaching you about everything woodworking related. In this blog post we will be delving into cross cut saws and their uses. 

Crosscut saws are a fantastic piece of woodworking machinery that are designed to cut wood across the wood grain.

What exactly are cross cut saws?

So, what exactly are cross cut saws and why do you need one? Cross cut saws are technically any saw that is designed to cut wood across the wood grain, and they come in all shapes and sizes. Cross cut saws can be a type of handsaw, or a power tool. The ones that come with finer teeth that are closer together are made for more precise work such as woodworking. For other kinds of woodwork and carpentry, you can find cross cut saws with larger teeth that are spaced out. 

What are cross cut saws mainly used for? 

These saws are most commonly used for cutting wood perpendicular to the grain. With sharp teeth angled backwards, cross cut saws are great for getting a clean and precise cut. They’re an incredibly useful woodworking tool that will help you complete your projects.

Can I use a refurbished cross cut saw? 

Yes, refurbished and used cross cut saws are perfectly safe to use. Here at Calderbrook Woodworking Machinery, we sell refurbished woodwork machinery as well as second hand cross cut saws and other machinery too. 

There are many benefits to purchasing used woodwork machinery. Here are a few of the main advantages to doing so.

You can save money: when you purchase second hand tools, you can often get them at a lower price than buying brand new. And of course when you buy from a reliable manufacturer such as ourselves, you can rest assured these second hand tools are in perfect working condition. 

More sustainable: Buying refurbished woodwork machinery is a sustainable option. This is because instead of buying brand new, you’re reusing a preowned piece of equipment that would have ended up in a landfill.
