Rip saws are a type of saw designed for cutting along the length of a piece of wood. A rip saw typically has a relatively wide blade with medium-toothed teeth that are spaced close together. Rip saws are used to make long, straight cuts in hardwoods, but they can also be used to cut other materials such as plywood and particle board. One advantage of using a rip saw is that it can produce very smooth, accurate cuts.

What Are Rip Saws?

Rip saws are powerful, accurate and highly reliable woodworking machines which, at the same time, are simple and safe to operate. Rip saws are one of the most common additions to any workshop, featuring a protruding circular saw blade with adjustable blade height and tilting for the perfect finish no matter the size or requirement. Saw benches and rip saws offer precision and robust build quality for use in a number of woodworking sectors such as sawmills, timber frame production and general joinery needs.

It is one of the most commonly used pieces of workshop equipment so we advise considering the requirements and potential frequency of use before purchase. There are a number of functions that you may want to take into account when choosing which rip saw is right for you and your workshop. Some of the rip saws available are multi-blade whilst others have tilting tables, offering a range of different angles for cutting – perfect for any heavy-duty workload with an emphasis on accuracy and safety.

What Are Rip Saws Used For?
