Although they share an almost identical process, Panel Saws and Wall Saws have a few key differences that make them suited towards different types of workshops. However, at their core, both machines are used to cut large wooden panels into smaller planks – making them easier to use as components and easier to store, transport or even discard.
What are Panel Saws and Wall Saws?
Often referred to as “Horizontal Panel Saws”, Panel Saws are large saws that come in worktable form. They’ll typically fit well into medium and large workshops but may be too big for smaller workshops that are cramped and short of space. Of course, smaller panel saws are available, but finding one to fit a cramped workshop may be difficult.
Typically, panel Saws have a single spinning blade in the centre of the table – when smachining, the operator slides the workpiece into the blade to make a clean, precise cut. Although similar to a standard Table Saw, woodworkers will often struggle to process larger workpieces with a Table Saw. This is made easier with Panel Saws as the blade is usually much larger and the table itself (as mentioned) is bulkier.
