The Azebiki saw is designed for plunge cutting in a variety of panels such as installing an electrical switch receptacle into a wooden panel, or cutting sliding dovetail slots. The long neck supports a short blade with both rip and crosscut teeth for smooth controlled cuts. The blade has curved cutting edges, allowing the cut to start at the center of the board with no pilot hole required. When cutting a large curve into a panel, keep the blade shallow to the cut, using the front 1/3 of the blade. Begin the cut by working the tip of the blade back and forth until the teeth begin to penetrate the surface. Continue with smooth pull strokes at a 45 degrees angle. Holding the handle with both hands will provide added power and control.
