This is a specialized form of circular saw evolved in the redwood region for handling large logs. It is really a combination of four saws; three in a vertical plane and one in a horizontal. The topmost saw and the horizontal saw function only as a means to "rabbett" out a portion from large logs board by board, so that the portion left will pass between the arbors of the two main saws.
