Miter Saw / November 30, 2018 / Tina Abrahamsson
To ensure accuracy and control Hitachi miter saw also has linear ball bearing slide system. Hitachis miter saw is also designed to maintain RPM while cutting because it has an electronic speed control system. Its fully adjustable patented chip deflector would also ensure that no tear-outs would happen. And that is not the end of it all. Hitachi miter saw is also convenient to use. Most power miter saw users complain that their tools are just too difficult to start. Sometimes starting the motor is such a drag that you would just simply get frustrated and lost the spark to do work. Well that will not happen with a Hitachi miter saw. From start to finish users will feel comfortable with Hitachis miter saw. Starting up would not be a hassle: with its electronic soft start feature users can maintain their positive moods to do quality work throughout the day. Precision convenience and comfort-these are the things that every woodworker and carpenter would like to have with their miter saws. And you will exactly get those benefits with a high-quality Hitachi miter saw. A miter saw is one of the most commonly owned and commonly used power tools in the industry.
A distinguishing characteristic of a miter saw is the rounded miter index that allows the angle of the blade to be changed relative to the "fence" the bar that holds your stock in place. The protractor-shaped index often has pre-designated "stops" so you can quickly swing the saw head to the angle you want and lock it in place. The Makita LS1040 has nine stops: four to the left and right and the 90-degree straight cut setting. I had previously used a friends mitre saw at a job site and had experienced some trouble with the grip which didnt fit my hand very well. So that was definitely one of the features I considered before choosing the Makita. My new saw has a vertical grip design with a thumb-activated safety switch that lets me use the saw comfortably with either hand. The large paddle trigger is easy to squeeze no matter how Im holding the handle. Motor and Blade Brake There are a number of motor sizes used in miter saws. The LS1040 has a 15-amp motor which is one of the larger motors found on this size of compound mitre saws. Ive found that I can easily cut through tough hardwoods with this powerful motor.
Producing a virtually unparalleled smoothness of cut the tool is unbelievably precise and offers optimal operator control throughout every conceivable working condition. The new axial system completely replaces the miter saws former and comparatively underdeveloped rail system with two multi-joint articulating (or hinged) arms which appear more akin to a space-robot than a power tool. These cast-iron arms also ensure the saw remains properly aligned and calibrated despite time and unfavorable environments. Additionally the saws axial design is not only responsible for its unmatched durability and crazy-smooth precision but it also folds to sit flush with the back of the saw saving up to 12" of workspace compared with a standard sliding compound miter saw.
