how does the circular saw used to remove plaster casts work? I know it is powered by electricity but how does it just cut the plaster and not cut into flesh?

Any doctors on here?

The blade reciprocates very rapidly and it is brilliant at carving through solids, but where there is "give", such as flesh or Tubegauz then it just tickles - but never press too hard!
as toureman says , it reciprocates/vibrates, doesnt actually revolve
plus its not actually a saw/blade. - when i had mine taken off i was i bit scared till the plaster tech person turned the thing on and put it against her arm to show me it wouldn't hurt
