Miter Saw / October 29, 2018 / Fiore Calabrese.
Bosch also builds an exceptional miter saw; their 5412L dual bevel sliding miter saw is extremely powerful with large capacities and up-front controls. Although a bit heavier than some other models the 5412 12" capacity miter saw is an ergonomic wonderland with a specially designed multi-position main handle that allows craftsmen to comfortably lock into four different positions. The tool also has sliding extensions slide that come standard and make working with longer pieces of stock and lumber much more manageable if not wholly enticing. The miter also features high fences (a crowd pleaser every time) to accommodate workpieces like large crown molding. A good fence is a big benefit and this saw offers not only that but the confidence of a strong and durable tool.
Screw the fence to the table loosely so that it can be adjusted. Use the long straight edge on the miter saws table and on the front of the fence to align the fence perfectly and screw down tightly. Repeat for the other side of the table if there is one. For the left fence place a "right to left" reading stick-on measuring tape along the top of the fence. For the right fence place a "left to right" reading stick-on measuring tape along the top of that fence. Before sticking down the tapes must be aligned perfectly. The left tape is measuring the distance from the left side of the saw blade teeth and the right tape is measuring the distance from the right side of the saw blade teeth. With a simple wooden fence like this you can use wooden stop blocks clamped to the fence with C-clamps for repetitive cuts.

Use a long straightedge in all directions to make sure that the miter saw and the miter saw table are flush with each other. Mount the saw securely to the shelf using lag screws. Once the miter saw is mounted you can begin to construct the fence or fences. A simple inexpensive fence can be constructed using 1 x 4 or 1 x 6 clear fir boards. These boards should be hand selected for straightness and jointed on one edge. One board will be the actual fence and the other will keep it straight from behind. The fence sits with its jointed edge on the saw table top while the back-up board lies flat on the table behind the fence with its jointed edge joined to the bottom of the fence.
