Miter Saw / October 25, 2018 / Albertina Davide.
There is however some variation in this so you will have to check your particular saw. If you look at your saw blade you will notice that it is wider in the middle than it is in at the bottom or the top clearly the closer to the middle of the blade you can get when you are making the cut the wider you will be able to go. Some saws allow you to go deeper than others particularly if you are using a compound miter saw. This will allow you to get another inch or so. That being said you should probably not expect to get more than six inches with a 10 inch miter saw. One thing to keep in mind is that the six inches that you get refers to a straight cut this is something that a lot of people dont think about when they are buying a miter saw. They assume that because it can cut six inches they will have no trouble cutting a 2x6 this is not however the case. If you cut a miter on a 2x6 the distance that you have to go is going to be a lot longer than six inches. If you have a 10 inch miter saw you should assume that a 4x4 is the biggest piece that you will be able to cut.
The greatest benefit of having a miter saw is that you can finish your work quickly and spend more quality time with your family. A miter saw (also called as mitre saw and less commonly miter box) is a mechanical tool used for making accurate crosscuts and miters in a workpiece. There are two types of miter saws commonly found. These are manual miter saw and a motorized miter saw. The first miter saw ever made in the world was a manual miter saw. It is a saw having replaceable blades suspended on rollers in a metal guide which allows making of accurate crosscuts and miter cuts. These are more commonly used in picture framing but have now been replaced by its power operated counterpart. The manual miter saw is also the sliding miter saw. The motorized miter saw which is operated on power is also called as chop saw or drop saw. It is a power operated tool that is used to make quick accurate crosscuts in a work piece. This power tool is commonly used in framing operations and cutting of molding.
Screw the fence to the table loosely so that it can be adjusted. Use the long straight edge on the miter saws table and on the front of the fence to align the fence perfectly and screw down tightly. Repeat for the other side of the table if there is one. For the left fence place a "right to left" reading stick-on measuring tape along the top of the fence. For the right fence place a "left to right" reading stick-on measuring tape along the top of that fence. Before sticking down the tapes must be aligned perfectly. The left tape is measuring the distance from the left side of the saw blade teeth and the right tape is measuring the distance from the right side of the saw blade teeth. With a simple wooden fence like this you can use wooden stop blocks clamped to the fence with C-clamps for repetitive cuts.
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.
