As a plunge saw is ideally used in conjunction with a guide rail (otherwise known as a track) which gives the saw a straight line to cut along and keeps the saw still, steady and straight.
Using the plunge saw on a guide rail allows you to cut a dead straight line in no time at all. Once the rail is set up along the line of cut, simply attach your saw to the rail and away you go. Also, because your saw will be tightly held into the rail, there isn’t going to be any jarring or inaccuracy in your cut just follow the guide with no wobble.
Plunge saws all come with a 30-40mm dust extraction port which means that you can fit an extractor to it. Now unlike most tools that blow sawdust around all over the place, a plunge saw actually kicks out all its dust in pretty much the same direction, making it fairly easy for an extractor to collect the majority of the dust generated.
Speed of set up:
If you’ve decided not to use clamps, then set up is complete in a matter of seconds. Just align your track with your ready-made marks on the material and you’re ready to cut! There’s no need for tests, guessing or double checking. You can cut over and over again without fear of making a mistake (please don’t try to test this rule).
Cut on site, reducing required space:
If you’re using a plunge saw over a table saw, it means that you can cut in a far smaller space. When using a table saw you’ll need infeed or outfeed space for your material. However, because a plunge saw will slice into your material whilst in situ there’s no need for that additional room.
It’ll also save room in your van/garage/shed!
The beauty of guide rails is that they have a squared end and a symmetrical design, allowing one to be easily linked to another (as long as they are the same brand of rail) via a ‘connector piece’. This means that you can join rails together time after time allowing you to cut an accurate, straight line from 1m to 100m if you really needed to!
A Cut Above:
Saving the best till last, the real reason to get yourself a plunge saw, is, the shear quality of the cut it gives you! From MDF, to plywood, to solid timber or even melamine a plunge saw delivers the best in class cut quality when compared to circular or tables saws. In most cases it’s nigh-on perfect with no splinters and barely any waste or chips. The top surface will be virtually flawless and take no time at all to achieve.
I hope that gives you an idea of why Plunge Saws are becoming one of the most popular power tools in the UK market.
