Miter Saw / November 8, 2018 / Albertina Davide
If you do find that you have to cut a piece that is larger than six inches and all you have is a 10 inch miter saw you do have a couple of options. The first is that you can simply cut as far as you can and then flip the piece over the finish the cut. The downside is that not all angles can be cut this way. The other issue is that lining up the cuts can be a problem although a laser on your saw will make things a lot easier. Another option that you may want to consider if you have a piece that is a little bit too big for your 10 inch miter saw is to use a piece of wood to raise the cutting deck. This will allow you to get closer to the middle of the blade which will give you more distance. Not all saws have the motor mounted high enough off the deck to make this possible so you will have to check if this is an option with your saw. If you do use this method make sure that you attach the wood firmly to the deck so that it does not slide around while you are cutting. The above methods for making cuts larger than six inches with a 10 inch miter saw are stop gaps that you can use if it is something that only happens occasionally.
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.
Most of these miter saws are portable with blade sizes ranging from eight to twelve inches. This saw works by pulling a circular saw blade down onto a work piece in a short controlled motion the work piece being held against a fence. This fence provides an accurate cutting angle between the blade and the longest work piece edge. In a standard position this angle is fixed at 90 degrees. The primary feature that distinguishes this saw from others is its miter index that allows the angle of the blade to be altered relative to the fence. Whereas most miter saws provide a facility to make a one degree incremental change to the miter index many also provide stops that allow the miter index to be properly set to common angles of repose like 15 degrees 30 degrees or 45 degrees. Some salient features of the sliding miter saws are as under: - A compound feature allows the angle of the cutting blade to be altered relative to the cutting plane. This also allows the saw to be used for bevel cutting.
