Miter Saw / October 31, 2018 / Tina Abrahamsson.
The GCM12SD in its perfect completeness also offers best in class dust collection at 90% dust efficiency when cutting 2x material with a vacuum attached to its integrated standard dual-purpose dust port. The new axial-glide design also expands the miter saws cutting capacity to 14" horizontally 6.5" vertically against the fence (base) and 6.5" when cutting crown against the fence (45 degree spring) for the most optimal usability. Additionally the saws etched stainless steel easy-to-read miter scale aligns with 10 adjustable miter detents allowing you to cut unique angles with accurate detents over the saws 52° left to 60° right miter range. Furthermore two 33.9° bevel stops are conveniently integrated and the saws high-visibility scale enables front bevel angle adjustments from 0 - 47° left or right. Situated conveniently at the front of the saw its push-button miter detent override additionally offers fractional adjustments for the most precise cut-lines.
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.
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.
And lastly is the table extension where it balances and stops your wood. Miter saw blades also have its different sizes and classifications which are classified into three. 1. The first one is the steel blades which are normally used for plywood and is the least expensive of the three. 2. Second is the high-speed blades which are used both in soft and hard concrete. 3. Third is the carbide-tipped which is the long-lasting and the most expensive of the three blades. Those are the miter saws common features and the kinds of blades that would give you a hint on what miter saw you need. The manual miter saw are only used oftentimes by woodworkers in making frames and produces simpler cuts than that of the compound miter saws.
