refers to a circular saw with a moveable saw blade. The saw blade is lowered down onto the wood from above. Parquet mitre saws are sword saws which serve to divide large pieces of lumber into shorter pieces or to cut a whole bundle of wood to the same length.

Personalized Chainsaws are used for cutting long, curved tree trunks. Mitre saws
are circular saws
in which the cutting angle can be changed by tilting the saw blade. This allows for the trimming of workpieces to be joined at a 45 degree angle. Mitre saws
are available in various sizes. The possible applications of the small models are very limited. Larger models, in contrast, are as widely applicable as stationary circular saws. Table mitre saws are powerful industrial circular saws with a standing machine framework. Modern cross-cutting systems are high-performance automatons that optimally utilize the raw materials with minimal cutting by making use of electronic length measurements.
In 1877, George Ott invented a simple mitre saw
which was attached to a mounting bracket and operated by hand. The basic chop saw is a simple evolution of the table saw. These two principles are combined in modern mitre saws. Meanwhile, very large and fully automatic mitre saws are employed in industry. Due to the high potential for danger during the operation of a mitre saw, safety is at the fore, especially in the use of large, powerful industrial mitre saws
. Two-handed operation is required, and protective shields serve the prevention of accidents.
The applications of the mitre saw
are widely varied and range from private home use to industry. Mitre saws are used by handymen as well as craftsmen. Their strength lies in the exact cutting of angles. They are therefore employed in the production of picture frames. Large mitre saws
are used in the field of industrial carpentry. Tablesaws and chopsaws were developed for the industrial sector. Table saws are employed in the classic fields of lumber milling, carpentry and furniture-making. Cross-cutting systems serve the production of parquet, pallets and boxes, as well as furniture and window production
Some firms have focussed on the production of mitre saws
. This includes especially established brands such as GREULE and ELU.
