Accordingly miter saw blade changes are one of the most common tool maintenance applications. Fortunately for tool users of all skill levels changing the blade on a miter saw is easier than you might think. In fact whether your saw has a blade lock feature or not changing your miter saw blade requires only a few minutes a screw driver an Allen wrench and in some cases a hunk of scrap wood. As with all repair and maintenance procedures the first step in replacing your miter saw blade is embracing a few safety precautions. Disengage the saw and unplug it; never work on a power tool that has the potential to turn on. You might also throw on your safety glasses because they make everyone look smarter and absolutely stay focused. Handling a blade is always dangerous and particularly so if youre rushed or distracted. So keep your eyes on the prize. The next step is bypassing the blade guard.
The greatest benefit of having a miter saw is that you can finish your work quickly and spend more quality time with your family. A miter saw (also called as mitre saw and less commonly miter box) is a mechanical tool used for making accurate crosscuts and miters in a workpiece. There are two types of miter saws commonly found. These are manual miter saw and a motorized miter saw. The first miter saw ever made in the world was a manual miter saw. It is a saw having replaceable blades suspended on rollers in a metal guide which allows making of accurate crosscuts and miter cuts. These are more commonly used in picture framing but have now been replaced by its power operated counterpart. The manual miter saw is also the sliding miter saw. The motorized miter saw which is operated on power is also called as chop saw or drop saw. It is a power operated tool that is used to make quick accurate crosscuts in a work piece. This power tool is commonly used in framing operations and cutting of molding.
Perfect lines and angles are made more easily with the Kapexs fraction of a degree accuracy - once you set a miter angle rest assured it will be exact. The saw is as strong as a brick house but performs with ethereal precision to bring you the most professional results with each and every cut. However as the Kapex is an unconscionably brilliant power tool it also tends to be the most. It is important to remember though that in the business of power tools you always get what you pay for. However if price is a bigger factor or if you are a strictly light-duty user there are many fine miter saws available to meet your big or small industrial needs while also not burning a hole through your wallet. For example: Makitas LS1040 compound miter saw with its light-weight portability and powerful motor sits brilliantly in any home shop or garage.
Weighing only 24.2 lbs an extremely low and terribly convenient weight for such a powerful and functional tool is extremely easy to move about your home or shop. It can also be easily transported from one job or project to another. This saw provides a welcome and down-sized alternative to the bigger super heavy-duty miter saws of the industry while still offering big power and compound cutting operations. Its 10" capacity is big enough to tackle most heavy applications and its Makita motor is just as powerful as many of the industrys bigger saws. Ultimately this little sucker has a bit more punch than you might expect but rarely does one complain of having a surplus of power and charm as this tool certainly does.
