When pressing the saw blade onto the workpiece and vigorously pushing it at the same time, the teeth are cutting into the material removing chips.
Figure 11 Action of the saw blade
The force applied is evenly distributed over all cutting teeth.
If only a few teeth are cutting (thin workpieces) there is a danger of hooking and breaking away!
Therefore, the saw is to be guided so that many teeth are cutting at the same time!
