Stake pointing on a circular saw

The most efficient way to point stakes (up to eight feet in length) is to use a circular saw with a properly designed and constructed jig. This technique is suitable for low-volume production. For higher volume production, proprietary stake pointing machines are available.Stake pointing produces small sharp pointed off-cuts. If these are allowed to build up around the saw they can jam the blade or be ejected back towards the operator. Regular removal of the off-cuts is therefore important by either using a push-stick or first stopping the machine.
