Question Panel Saw Operation Info Needed

Hi Guys,

I would like to know more about operating a panel saw, are they diffucult to learn as compared to other saws ?
I am familiar with almost every other saw, but I have never ran a panel saw.

Thanks

Assuming we are talking about the same thing... the panel saws I am familiar with are basically a circular saw mounted to a sliding track, that is mounted on a framework to hold sheets of plywood/paneling. There is one in use in virtually every big box hardward store. I don't think they are all that tricky to operate.
Is that what you are referring to?

Could it be that you are referring to a radial arm saw? These are also used in some home centers and lumber yards, typically for crosscutting.

You got it UBob, Thank You.

I applied for a position with a furniture company running a Pannel Saw, they said they could not find anybody to run it & I have used almost every other saw there is so I said to myself ''It Can't Be That Hard'' ! lol

Sounds interesting! I'm sure you can handle it (like you said, how different/hard can it be?). There should be lots to learn at a furniture manufacturer. Just remember safety first - any saw can hurt you if you aren't careful. Good luck with your new job.

different animal

This is probably an industrial saw. Most likely a huge, computerized machine that may have pneumatic and hydraulic controls and what have you. Not your big box store toy that you operate by hand. Should be fun running that. Good luck.
