In the world of tools a saw that can sit on a workbench and has a handle to pull down for cutting, doesn’t make it a universal saw type. Did you know that chop saw and miter saw are not synonymous? That’s right! Each fills their own industry needs and cuts very different materials.
The Chop Saw
This tool, also known as a cut-off saw, was designed specifically for cutting metal. During its days of origin, professionals didn’t have much faith in a saw’s ability to cut through metal, but with a specific rotational speed and a uniquely designed blade, eventually, the chop saw became a metal industry standard for cutting. The chop saw is designed to cut straight lines and only moves up and down from its fixed position on the saw stand. When looking to cut at an angle, the fence that is fixed to the saw’s base is turned to determine the angle of the cut.
The Miter Saw
A miter saw, found often in woodworking is quite a versatile tool. Much like the name implies, this type of saw can create a miter – in many cases, these saws are dual bevel compound miter saws, which allows them to make many different adjustments to create combination cuts to the material. For example, you can tilt the saw leaning it both left and right creating an angled cut to the cut profile. You can also turn the saw, rotating it left or right away from the 90-degree starting point creating different cutting angles. And when you make adjustments to both the tilt and the rotation of the saw you are able to make a compound cut that is angled in multiple directions.
Though this type of saw is often found in woodworking, the ability to change the blade makes it useful for other materials as well. You can cut things like foam board, PVC, and even non-ferrous metals.
Both the miter saw and the chop saw have a similar design, in their abilities to be lowered to the material being cut, which allows the user a great amount of control. They both also allow for angled cuts, though the setup for creating an angle is done differently with each saw. Each saw serves a great purpose in their intended industry and though you may see both in a workshop, they will each have their own job to do.
Now, what was the difference between those other things?
Properly maintained equipment is important to your business’s operations and the safety of your employees. While your Minnich concrete equipment is built to handle tough and demanding tasks, it still requires attention on a regular basis.
As we grind through the hot summer months, one of the most important things you can do is prepare your concrete dowel pin drills and vibes for next season. Prioritizing equipment maintenance helps to ensure safe and trouble-free operation and can prevent larger repair costs in the future. Keep your equipment in top form with these tips:
PERFORM REGULAR MAINTENANCE
Performing regular maintenance to your concrete drill and vibe will help to minimize repairs, reduce downtime, and help lengthen equipment life.
To maximize operating efficiency, be sure to check the following during maintenance:
- Check the drill oil level. Just like your automobile, proper lubrication is vital to prolonging the life of your hammer drill. Knowing which type of lubrication and how much to use is essential to maximizing performance. There are two ways to check for proper lubrication:
- Rub your finger inside the exhaust deflector of the hammer drill. You should feel a fine oily film.
- There should also be evidence of oil around the collar of the drill steel. Oil shouldn’t be covering these areas, only the fine oily film should be evident.
Minnich dowel drills have adjustment screws to regulate the flow. Please reference your drill product page on our website to watch short instructional videos on how to do this. For additional oil fill tips, Minnich Manufacturing provides step-by-step instructions.
- Inspect hydraulic vibrator motor housings. During an inspection, look for unusual wear patterns. Often, these wear patterns will create pinholes, which allow concrete to enter the vibrator housing and seizes the vibrator head permanently.
- Check hydraulic vibrator’s speeds. These speeds can be checked via a Paving Vibrator Monitoring system or digital tachometer. If your vibe is not performing well, sending the vibe to an authorized repair shop to be checked for slippage would be beneficial. Slippage happens after long exposure to hydraulic pressure. The path of hydraulic fluid could wear a slight groove in the aluminum motor housing which would allow hydraulic oil to slip past the gears in the motor. Another possibility for reduced performance would be if a motor seal wears out. Either way, an authorized repair house would be able to test the amount of slippage, repair the hydraulic motor, and offer a warranty on the vibrator.
- Clean dust collector filter regularly. Cleaning out the system’s filter will help to ensure optimum engine performance. Minnich Manufacturing has incorporated a purge button feature on the dust collection system, which reverses the airflow and blasts air through the filter to help keep the filter clean. Use of the dust collection system in wet environments is not advised as the fine dust on the filter and inside the system will gel and harden.
- Reduce downtime
Potential red flags are often uncovered during maintenance tasks that can be repaired or replaced before it becomes a larger issue. To keep your equipment in top condition, follow the recommended maintenance procedures found in your owner’s manual for your specific drill and vibe. For additional help, or to replace parts, contact your local dealer.
Consider sending in your paving vibrators to your manufacturer for repair early in the winter. Minnich Manufacturing has the expertise and tools to service concrete equipment to help lengthen product life span, helping you get the most from your equipment.

Inspect the saw
Before each use, check the saw over for any damage or defects. Look for issues with the power source, the blade, base plate, and blade guard. If your saw is cordless, make sure you have a fully charged battery.
Check the blade
The blade you are using will depend on the type of material you will be cutting. Regardless of the blade type – check for chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Never use a blade that is broken, rusted, or dull. If you are replacing the blade, be sure to disconnect the saw from its power supply before you make any changes to the saw blade.
Use a speed square (framing square) as a guide for making crosscuts. Place the blade of the saw at your cut mark, then place the square against the edge of the base plate. Using the square as your straight-line guide, start the saw, bring it to full speed and begin to cut while the base plate travels against the edge of the square.
Kickback from a saw can be very dangerous. The chances of kickback happening are much higher when the material being cut is not supported and causes the material to pinch the saw blade. To reduce saw blade pinching, give your material extra support by placing supports under either side of your cut to prevent the material from falling and creating a pinched space.
Creating a rip cut can often be a much longer cut than a crosscut, this is because a rip cut runs parallel (in the same direction) to the wood grain. Much like using the speed square as a guide for a crosscut, a ply-wood board or even a level clamped to your material can be an ideal guide for making a rip cut. Like the crosscut, line up the saw blade, then place the guide against the base plate to create your cutting guide. The clamps will allow your guide to remain in its place while allowing you to use both hands for handling the saw.
Splintering in wood, when cut happens due to the spin of the blade when the saw is cutting. A circular saw spins from the bottom up, this would create splintering on the side of the material facing up while cutting. To avoid creating splinters in a material of high quality or value, place the backside of the cut facing up so that any splintering will happen on the side of the material that is not visible. If the material being cut will be visible from both sides, place the more visible side down, then for the opposite side, score along the cut line with a utility knife to create an edge that will be free of splinters.
