A gang rip saw is a type of woodworking machinery used for ripping or cutting lumber into narrower pieces. It typically consists of multiple saw blades mounted on a single arbor, allowing for simultaneous cutting of multiple pieces of wood. Gang rip saws are commonly used in industries such as furniture manufacturing, cabinetry, and woodworking.
They are known for their efficiency and ability to handle high-volume production. The blades on a gang rip saw are usually fixed in position and spaced apart to achieve the desired width of the ripped pieces. This type of saw is often used in conjunction with other woodworking machines to process luber into various sizes and shapes.
