Title: Circular sawing experiments on a radial arm saw

Author: McMillin, Charles W.; Lubxin, J.L.;

Date: 1959

Source: Forest Products Journal, Vol. 9(10): 361-367

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Several years ago, the American Machine and Foundry Co. decided to conduct a comprehensive investigation in the field of cutting processes. The initial emphasis has been on circular sawing because of the product line of the company's DeWalt Division. As a nevessary antecedent to theoretical and experimental investigations, an extensive review of the literature on circular sawing was undertaken by Lubkin (1)2. Although considerable quantities of information are available on ripsawing, virtually no information was discovered on crosscut or miter sawing of wood. The later operations are important and are the principal cuts for which radial-arm saws are used.
