What does a Cut-Off-Saw Operator II do?

Tends circular saw that saws kiln-dried lumber, rough lumber, or woodstock to standard lengths in sawmills, furniture plants, or woodworking establishments: Examines boards of rough lumber or finished woodstock for defects, such as excessive warping, knots, and cracks, to determine where to cut boards to minimize waste. Pushes boards against stop guides on saw table, and depresses button or pedal to activate saw to cut boards to specified length. Places cut boards on conveyor for further processing.
