A 36" outside radius cut was made first and then a
30" inside radius was cut to make this perfect arch
out of ½" plywood. Using a circular saw with an
ARCUS® Contoured Radius Cutting Circular Saw Blade for
Wood, makes building arches for framing fast and
easy. Less plywood is wasted than cutting with
conventional methods.  A must have tool for
framing carpenters and for framing arches.
The ARCUS® Radius Cutting Circular Saw Wood
Blade is cutting a 64” radius on a 2" x 12' piece
of pine, the standard material in building homes.
The radius is cut in two passes with a Large
ARCUS® Compass Guide. The first pass is 1" deep
and the second pass is 2 " deep. A tight radius
may require more than one pass.  Medium and
large radii can be cut in one pass, but two passes
give you a nice finish and blade life is extended.
A very precise and smooth way to cut rafters for
barrel or arched ceilings, and sanding is usually
not needed before adding wood molding!
The ARCUS® Blade & Compass Guide System
cut a perfect circle in 1" maple with a 40" diameter.
For smaller diameters we recommend making two
passes at a 1" depth. The ARCUS® Blade is a Con-
toured Shaped Radius Circular Saw Blade. Use the
Compass Guide to cut circles, or round tops
with clean edges, in seconds! Makes DIY projects
quick and easy to build.  A must have tool for finish
carpenters & DIY-ers who want professional
results. (The maple was  a door panel, glued
together to get a square maple piece for this cut).
The ARCUS® Radius Cutting Circular Saw Wood
Blade and Compass Guide were designed for cutting
circles, and were used to cut this curved deck
bench out of composite decking material. The
pivot point was positioned so that the outside
and inside radius are concentric (having the
same radius pivot points for both cuts ).  Both of
these radius cuts are accurate, smooth, do not require
sanding, and so are therefore ready for the next step!
The ARCUS® Wood Blade has  C-6 carbide teeth for
a long life and will cut through nails when imbedded
in wood or decking material. When cutting decking
material, you can cut curves freehand using the
ARCUS® Wood Blade. Or use the Larger Compass
Guide for precision cutting of costly composite
decking material that does not require sanding.
