Miter Saw / October 25, 2018 / Albertina Davide.
When searching for high-end power tools at a low price craftsmen should also look for reconditioned tools. Reconditioned tools or recons although sometimes hard to come by are an extremely great value bringing craftsmen the highest-performance tools at a tiny fraction of regular cost. Recons for some minor cosmetic or technical defect have been returned to the manufacturer for stringent inspection and restoration processes. These tools are tested and restored to meet rigid manufacturer standards and are then re-released with a "R" trailing the model number. This little "R" (and potentially hundreds of dollars) is truly the only difference between a brand new tool and a recon. The value with these tools is truly a no-brainer; when recons are available snatch them up as an incomparable investment. Dewalts DW718R and DW716R miter saws are tremendous examples of the value of buying reconditioned.

Second the blade moves about 45-degrees to the left and right for miter cuts and lastly the blade will lean either to the left or to the left and right to perform bevel and double bevel cuts. Although compound miter saws are typically more portable and less expensive than sliding compound miter saws they also have less capacity for wider boards. Most often a compound miter saw will be unable to through-cut a wide board with a single pass. II.
