The TS75 is
A Circular Saw: it has a circular blade
A Track Saw: it can run along a track to make an accurate cut along a line
A Plunge Saw: the blade retracts, and can be plunged down in the middle of the material to be cut
Usually the term Plunge Saw also implies a track
What can you make using a Plunge Saw?
Breaking Down Large Sheets
Rip Cuts (Along the Grain)
What materials can you cut?
The Plunge Saw should be used only with wood or MDF.
Other materials, including metal, CANNOT be cut.
How can it be used?
Like any circular saw, the Plunge Saw can be used for rough cuts, however it is also capable of accurate and neat cuts both along and across the grain.
Although the plunge saw can make bevel cuts at angles up to 45°, you may find the Mitre Saw or Band Saw is more accurate on small workpieces.
The TS75 can cut bevels at angles from 0° to 45°.
At 0° the maximum depth of cut is 75mm, at 45° the maximum depth of cut is 56mm.
What other tools/equipment can be used instead?
Crosscuts, mitres and bevel cuts across thin strip material (up to around 300mm wide) are usually quicker, safer and more accurate on the mitre saw
Bevel cuts on medium-sized material (up to around 500mm wide and 1200mm long) are usually quicker, safer and more accurate on the band saw
For making a few, light cuts, a hand saw can often be faster than setting up + fully packing away the plunge saw
