Actually, our Mr. Miller describes a moving (XY axes_ table saw in his
patent outlining the manner in which it was used...
"Those saws being in motion, the matter or substance they are to cut is
brought forward as follows:— The horizontal shaft, as mentioned before,
hath a small wheel on it, with a groove to receive a rope; the rope is
continued to a smaller, that hath a pinion to it, connected to a
straight bar under the chariot, which hath teeth to match the pinion;
the chariot moves in a groove likewise on a centre; it hath two motions.
one to advance forward, and the other sideways, which is performed by a
screw annexed to the end of the chariot. This screw is turned by hand to
direct the pieces against the saws, agreeable to any line wanted to be cut."
Now, granted, he being a sailmaker (and other &c &c :) ) undoubtedly his
version was more for beams and all for boatmaking and hence quite a lot
larger than the typical furniture/cabinet maker's needs, it clearly was
a tablesaw for the purpose of other than sawing logs lengthwise into lumber.
I think what he's describing there is a sawmill, not a table
saw. The "chariot" is what we would today call the carriage
(for carrying the log); the screw annexed to the end is to
move the log sideways, to set the thickness of the resulting
The fondness of old-time authors for mile-long sentences,

I don't have any problem whatsoever following the meaning...I don't
doubt it was intended _primarily_ to cut beams but it had the
flexibility to "direct the pieces against the saw, agreeable to _any_
line wanted to be cut." All it takes is orientation of the workpiece.
The need was for a more efficient and durable design. The dual stroke
of the straight blades only cut in one direction. The return stroke was
a wasted motion as far as cutting was concerned. The circular blade
never has to reverse direction to continue the cycle.
I'm sure you could envision how spinning the circular blade would not be
a stretch of the imagination.
No all of this is with the assumption that we both agree that a circular
saw spins a circular blade.
I'm sorry if the answer is still too complicated for you to understand. I
tried to explain in the simplest way that I could when you asked what
seemed to be a simple question. Perhaps you did not understand the
question you asked. It's not really complicated.
Reread your question several times and my answer the same amount of
times. That might help.
So just to clarify, you asked,
So if she did not invent the circular saw then what was the purpose of
the circular blade design?
Consider this. A saw, any saw, a circular saw, will not cut with out a
blade. A blade is not a saw. A saw can be a saw with out a blade. So
if you were thinking that a circular blade is a circular saw, I can see
how you would be confused on the whole issue.
She came up with a better design blade, some one else came up with a way
to operate the blade, The machine/tool that operates that circular
blade would be called a saw, and or circular saw.
I'm sorry, but you're babbling incoherently. You've been doing enough
of that lately to make me worry for your health. Please get a checkup
and be sure to inform the physician that others tell you that you babble
incoherently at times.
Wow grade school responses.... I have mentioned this to another here,
I'll mention it again to you. You asked a question. I gave you an
answer, a stupid simple answer, an answer you should have respond with
DOH! Why did I not think of that. Forrest, trees. Instead you show
your true colors again.
May I suggest yo kill file me so that I don't bother you any more and
visa versa? I certainly have never seen any benefit from anything from
your comments. And you seem to be in the wrong news group since yo
never build anything.
