Miter Saw / November 15, 2018 / OdeletteGervais.
Makitas LS1016L with a 10" capacity is brilliantly handsome at no sacrifice to quality or functionality. As a dual-bevel sliding compound miter saw is also has some pretty exclusive technologies that quickly solidify this tool as a giant among other miters. The saw weighs only 52.2 lbs and boasts the most compact design in its class. This coupled with an exclusive dual sliding fence system (which allows for upper and lower fence adjustments which in turn equals greater cutting accuracy) and a linear ball bearing construction renders the saw impossibly smooth solid and always accurate. This little giant from Makita is tough and smooth and offers craftsmen a smaller lighter more manageable saw while still delivering authoritative power and all the innovative perks of an industrial saw.
For starters a sliding compound miter saw is designed with two rail-like tubes that allow the blade to move back and forth in a larger range of motion. This grows crosscutting capacity by a few inches and allows users to through-cut wider boards (usually with one easy pass). Because of these tubes though sliding compound miters saws are typically heavier they are less portable and theyre more expensive. With the exception of some Bosch and Makita saws that utilize a kind of articulating arm in lieu of sliding-tubes sliding compound miters also require more room (especially at the rear of the saw) to work properly.
For you to choose the right miter saw you have to know its features. Miter saws vary in brands designs and also its blades. The blade guard which is known as a safety blade. A laser guard which serves as a guide of the portion you are about to cut. The shaft lock which helps you in changing the blades of your miter saw. Then the dust bag basically collects the dust of your woodwork. The electric brake is the most important features of your miter saw. The electric brake is one of its safety features which automatically shut down the blade in case of emergency.
This also allows you to push the tool directly against a wall for use with literally zero clearance behind it and because the saw is insanely compact (weighing only 65 lbs) its simple to use in cramped low-space work-spaces and convenient to store and transport. In place of the sliding rail interface of former saws 12 sealed ball bearings make up the GCM12SDs new enclosed system one that maintains its integrity for essentially all-time providing the smoothest blade movement and vastly better control. Because this system is also enclosed its bearings and rollers wont accumulate jobsite debris thus ensuring it remains with a glide like nobodys business for its entire life-cycle. The thing also features a glide damper allowing you to adjust the saws resistance changing the "glide" mechanism as you see fit. Built with a totally transparent lower guard the saw additionally ensures youll have completely unimpaired visibility through each cut.
