Are plunge saws right for me?
Plunge saws are perfect for tradespeople or hobbyists that need to make long straight cuts with precision and don’t want to use very heavy equipment. Plunge saws are very versatile, making trimming off excesses or handling precision work a breeze, without the worry of heavy, clunky tools. Plunge saws are light and portable, easy to handle and store, without taking up large amounts of room in your workshop. They also have increased precision, so woodcutters can make precise final cuts the first time, without the need for extra cuts, tools or machinery.

Do I need a guide rail or track with my plunge saw?
No matter how experienced we are with woodworking equipment, cutting an extended line perfectly straight can be almost impossible. Arms and hands can change position by less than a millimetre, resulting in a cut that is now wonky and needs fixing. Guide rails or tracks were designed to remove this issue, as well as decreasing the likelihood of accidents and injuries. Guide rails for plunge saws help keep the saw steady, decreases the chance of wobbling and guides the saw along a perfectly straight line from start to finish, without the chance of change halfway along. All models of plunge saw from Kendal Tools & Machinery come with at least one guide track included, meaning that any plunge saw you buy from us will have everything you need to get started.
How can I keep safe when using a plunge saw?
Keeping safe while using power tools is essential and should be considered mandatory. Common steps and equipment for using a plunge saw safely include: • Wear appropriate PPE, including safety glasses, hearing protection, and appropriate clothing. • Always use the guide rail or track, it will keep the saw still and steady. • Keep the working area clean and clear of debris and offcuts. • Ensure safety features are engaged and you know how to use them. • Utiliser outfeed tables or stands when appropriate so you can focus on the machine. • Always disconnect the power before touching or changing the blade, even if you are in a hurry. • Do not start power saws with the blade already engaged- it is important that the blade reach full speed before starting to cut. • Keep good posture and a strong base. • Use a push stick if the timber is too close to the blade- save your fingers! If you do not keep yourself safe when using plunge saws and other power tools then the chances of serious or life-changing injury increase vastly, putting you and others at risk.
How to store my plunge saw when not in use?
To keep your plunge saw and other power tools safe and in the best possible condition, it is advised clean them thoroughly and store them within the case or box they originally came in, as this will protect them from falls, knocks, water, and dust. Storing them in original boxes and bags also lessens the chance of injury associated with falling tools. With the sharp blades safely covered, you may receive a bump and bruise if the saw falls, but it will not be able to cut or stab passers-by. Top Tip: put a few silica gel packets inside the box in case of moisture ingress. You can find these in new items such as shoes or clothes. To store the case or box, most people utilise shelves or storage cabinets/ chests, as this will keep them off the ground, protecting them from moisture which will minimise the risk of rusting. It will also help ensure debris cannot accumulate in and around your tools, which could lead to long-term damage. Moreover, it keeps tools at temperatures that will not damage the battery and are out of the way of children, inexperienced users, and potential thieves.
