Miter Saw / November 1, 2018 / Albertina Davide.
If you were making repetitive cuts and you needed to stop to use the saw momentarily for a different kind of cut you could resume your repetitive cutting immediately without losing any accuracy. PORTABLE MITER SAW TABLE FOR JOBSITE USE A jobsite miter saw table is usually made with the saw mounted to the extreme right end of the table. I have found that most miter saw manufacturers make their metal table surfaces so that they are 3 1/2" above the table on which the saw is resting. A very straight milled 4 x 4 (3 1/2" x 3 1/2") can be mounted onto the table top almost abutting the left side of the metal table of the saw. The 4 x 4 should extend out the full length of the supporting table to the left and be mounted to the supporting table.
I. Compound Miter Saws On a compound miter saw the blade moves in three general directions. First the blade moves up and down in a chopping motion. 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. Sliding Compound Miter Saws A sliding compound miter saw does all of the things a compound miter saw does while also adding a few more things to the pot.
This motion increases the blade cut capacity enabling the cut length to be longer than the blade diameter. Sliding compound miter saws also have a depth cut setting to cut dadoes into materials at a variety of depths. Sliding miter saws because of bigger capacities and more applications tend to be more expensive than the standard and compound miter saws. Blades: As one would think the price of the saw and of the blades as well tends to rise with the size of the saw and blade. Blade sizes range from eight ten and twelve inches; ten and twelve inches being the most popular sizes. Not only does the blade price increase with size but also with tooth count. It is important that you use the proper blade for each application.
For you to choose the right miter saw you have to know its features. Miter saws vary in brands designs and also its blades. The blade guard which is known as a safety blade. A laser guard which serves as a guide of the portion you are about to cut. The shaft lock which helps you in changing the blades of your miter saw. Then the dust bag basically collects the dust of your woodwork. The electric brake is the most important features of your miter saw. The electric brake is one of its safety features which automatically shut down the blade in case of emergency.
