A sash saw with multiple saw blades could cut several boards from a log at the same time and was called a "gang saw."
The mulay saw (also called a muley saw) typically had a single vertical blade that was driven directly by the pitman between wooden guide blocks at the top and bottom, and its blade was made of heavier steel than that of the sash saw. The mulay saw required less power than the sash saw because the weight and friction of the heavy framework that held the saw was dispensed with.
