Miter Saw / November 10, 2018 / OdeletteGervais.
Use a long straightedge in all directions to make sure that the miter saw and the miter saw table are flush with each other. Mount the saw securely to the shelf using lag screws. Once the miter saw is mounted you can begin to construct the fence or fences. A simple inexpensive fence can be constructed using 1 x 4 or 1 x 6 clear fir boards. These boards should be hand selected for straightness and jointed on one edge. One board will be the actual fence and the other will keep it straight from behind. The fence sits with its jointed edge on the saw table top while the back-up board lies flat on the table behind the fence with its jointed edge joined to the bottom of the fence.

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.
Bosch also builds an exceptional miter saw; their 5412L dual bevel sliding miter saw is extremely powerful with large capacities and up-front controls. Although a bit heavier than some other models the 5412 12" capacity miter saw is an ergonomic wonderland with a specially designed multi-position main handle that allows craftsmen to comfortably lock into four different positions. The tool also has sliding extensions slide that come standard and make working with longer pieces of stock and lumber much more manageable if not wholly enticing. The miter also features high fences (a crowd pleaser every time) to accommodate workpieces like large crown molding. A good fence is a big benefit and this saw offers not only that but the confidence of a strong and durable tool.
