Hello everyone, I have a question for you.

Hi,

I don't have an experience, but I want to know something..
My father's friend is a carpenter, and he told him about saws that connected to computer.
He is a 60 year old and have no experience with computers, and his children neither.
So he knows that I have an experience with that and asked my father to ask me about it.
He wants to buy a machine that connected to a computer and to take me as his partner if I learn how to do it and how to handle this machine.
I searched on Google and found nothing,
So do anyone can tell me about it, and how I can find information about it and learn this area about this machines?

Thank you very much!

Everything he did in that video was 100% safe. The only times the operator reaches under the pressure beam are after the saw has cycled, and after the first trim cut. When he pulls up on the bar he triggers the program cycle. The saw's operating parameters appear to be set so that it must be triggered again after the first trim cut. The one I use at work every day is set up the same way.

Gees, I don't know why anyone not in a manufacturing business would want a CNC table saw. It just makes things more complicated. In a manufacturing business a person might set up a saw and cut hundreds of parts before changing a setup. That would drive me nuts to have to go to a computer every ten minutes when I needed to change a dimension. If a person used a modern table saw with a fence system like a Biesemeyer it would be so much quicker and easier to set up. Where the CNC comes in handy is when you have an employee daydreaming about what they are going to do on the weekend and set the fence to the wrong dimension and cut a stack of plywood wrong.

there are many types of panel saws

As Steve said only a production shop would need a CNC panel saw. If you just want to break down 4 x 8 panels then there are many types of saws you can build or buy.
I made my own vertical 2 axis panel saw. See My Photos.
I also have a long travel carriage on tubes similar to this saw using a radial arm saw motor:

This saw has many "flaws" in my opinion. but as the builder explains it's still under development.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

CNC (computer numerically controlled) routers are very common in most pro shops these days. Most projects and plans are generated by CAD programs, (computer aided drafting). Other than those, shops use computer controlled positioning systems.
