Miter Saw / November 13, 2018 / OdeletteGervais.
When searching for high-end power tools at a low price craftsmen should also look for reconditioned tools. Reconditioned tools or recons although sometimes hard to come by are an extremely great value bringing craftsmen the highest-performance tools at a tiny fraction of regular cost. Recons for some minor cosmetic or technical defect have been returned to the manufacturer for stringent inspection and restoration processes. These tools are tested and restored to meet rigid manufacturer standards and are then re-released with a "R" trailing the model number. This little "R" (and potentially hundreds of dollars) is truly the only difference between a brand new tool and a recon. The value with these tools is truly a no-brainer; when recons are available snatch them up as an incomparable investment. Dewalts DW718R and DW716R miter saws are tremendous examples of the value of buying reconditioned.
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.
A good saw stand will be sturdy portable easy to fold up and store and contain extension arms to support extra-long pieces of wood. Whether you are a business professional with a large work load or committed DIYer that is planning to tackle some home improvement projects a miter saw and saw stand will be an invaluable piece of equipment in your workshop. Choosing a saw and stand will be a decision that should not be taken lightly. Decide how often you will be using them what kind of projects and wood crafting you will be performing and where the saw and stand will be located. If you travel a good amount get a stand that is light weight folds up and features wheels for easy transportation. If the stand will be set up in a busy workshop look for one that is heavy duty sturdy and contains extension arms that will assist with large work pieces. Every carpenter and woodworker I know appreciates the chance to buy a new tool. In my case Id been looking for a reason to buy a compound miter saw for years. A few months ago my wife and I decided to undertake a major home remodeling project that required replacing a number of crown moldings as well as interior framing around windows.
The standard miter has a blade pivot from right to left to cut miters; this standard saw is however becoming less popular as compound miters have more applications and are only slightly more expensive. Compound miters have the ability to bevel cut or tip the blade to either the left or right side (0° - 50°). Some can bevel in both directions allowing operators to miter and bevel within the same cut (-50° through 50°). Lastly a sliding miter saw is just like a compound miter but with extension rods that allow the saw blade and motor to move forward and back. This motion increases the blade cut capacity enabling the cut length to be longer than the blade diameter.
