Arcus Inc.
Developer of  a new shape in a circular saw blade that has a new cutting direction. The unique
contoured design of the blade cuts a radius unlike a traditional circular saw blade that is designed
to cut straight. The Arcus® vision  is to make high quality blades and accessories  for making difficult
projects that require a radius cut easier. Today ARCUS® Inc. manufactures the wood cutting,
masonry diamond and steel cutting blade.  To enhance the contoured shape blade accessory tools
were developed like the Compass Guide helps to perfect a precision cut circles since it is difficult to
follow a curve  line while cutting.

Barbara Cotten Robinson President / Inventor  owner of the Arcus Inc.:   The most asked that I
receive is where did you get  the ideal from. I needed a circular frame for a stained glass piece I
had just finished. My husband Jeff had been making rectangle frames for some of my stained glass
pieces (which was a good excuse to buy new tools) he purchased a router to make a circular frame
I only needed one. When I asked why not  use one of the circular saws.  He explained  to me that it
difficult and not safe if you were not a skilled carpenter to force a circular saw to cut a curve let alone
a circle and it  would  need a lot of sanding.   Jeff told me if I can think of how to do it he would get it
made meanwhile he would use a router.

Later that day I needed a salad plate for a snack, I started thinking  that the salad plate was almost
part of a sphere shape, it is 7 inches, if it falls on the floor on the side moves in a spiral circle when
rotated on its side then fall.  When I showed this to my husband and explained  what I could do to
make it cut a perfect circle and could use my modeling wax to sculpt one (I do some glass sculpting)
Jeff told me to make it and he would get the steel prototype made.  Manipulated the wax until it would
fit into would fit into most of the circular saws and would go into a perfect circle. That was hard since
the plate was a slight sphere shape I could tell it would be limited on what it could do if  you could
find a saw it would fit in.  So I had to come up a variation of this shape, the next day some birds
were flying in a circle and I thought of some sketches Leonardo De Vinci had done and I new the
shape that  was needed to allow the blade to deeper than a shallow sphere shape  would do and
would be able to cut a greater range of radius than a shallow plate would have. Jeff got some
prototypes made and then getting the right cutting tip that would give a smooth cut took some time.

That was the easy part, then my husband Jeff  had to develop a manufacturing process...(Jeff has
been selling chemicals to steel companies and manufacturing  companies for about 25 years and
knew how to get this done for me thanks to my husband Jeff).
