Ah, I see it's time for homework again

Circular saw : - on a disk of steel, braze carbide teeth. Band saw :- on a long strip of steel, braze the ends together, and prepare hacksaw blade style teeth on one edge. Run the band over two optionally three rollers to move and guide it.

Abrasive saw (1): on a long wire guided by rolls, apply a slurry of abrasive dust. Good for slicing rock.

Abrasive saw (2) on a disk of steel, cement diamond particles. Good for slicing ceramic tiles
