Miter Saw / November 21, 2018 / OdeletteGervais.
High-speed steel blades will hold an edge longer but the real ticket is a carbide-tipped blade which will stay sharpest the longest. I was pleased to see that the Makita LS1040 came with a 40-tooth carbide-tipped blade perfect for a variety of tasks Im doing. When I do need to change the blade theres a shaft lock that immobilizes the blade making it easier to get a wrench on the blade arbor and loosen it avoiding nicked fingers. So those are the things I looked for when choosing my miter saw: a powerful motor the ability to make both angle and bevel cuts at the same time an easy-to-use grip and safety features like the blade brake. Im glad l got a durable saw because once the crown moldings were finished my wife started thinking about adding a chair rail in several rooms and I was off to the lumber yard again. Every large entity starts out as a humble and small enterprise.
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.
Exclusive to Bosch this feature provides maximum working space without the use of a bulky table. Lastly Bosch has stuffed this mighty miter with a gorgeous 15amp motor with 3 max horsepower and a resounding 3800 rpm. In the end this lion-hearted space-craft of a miter saw has a surplus of authority a surplus of power and truly superior innovation and certainly the good-looks to complete the package with a perfect glistening cherry on top. The saw is for lack of a better term flabbergasting and performs with something like ethereal precision and perfect simplicity. Woodworking and carpentry is an art. Just like other arts the woodworker and carpenter need to have precision. For instance a miter joint should be perfectly done. Otherwise pieces of molding would not fit in at a right angle. In the old days miters are made using a manual miter saw. Cutting an accurately-made miter out of wood may take some time though.
If you are going to be making cuts of more than six inches regularly you will want to make sure that you get a saw that can handle them.
