A Chop saw is a circular saw that is mounted on an arm, at ninety degrees to the base. It is adjustable to usually 40 degrees from ninety. It works very well when one needs to make a large number of small cuts, such as posts in construction.

A caution about using them, NEVER operate them without a cover in place. This applies more to left handed persons than right handed persons, but it's still a bad idea.
