- n. A cross-cutting or cutting-off saw, mounted in a swinging frame, which can be brought to its work by swinging the saw and frame in a vertical plane round the axis of the driving shaft. It is used to cut up long logs into short lengths when it is easier to move the saw to its work than to move the work to the saw.
