Miter Saw / November 30, 2018 / Tina Abrahamsson
Additionally Boschs 4410L (10") dual-bevel sliding miter saw is another ideal addition your shop or tool shed. Working hard to bring the work of craftsmen and hobbyists to life the tools large pivoting fence and convenient positive stops render the saw truly perfect for home-repair and carpentry projects and although this saws truest reign may only be over the garage it certainly has the capacity to conquer many industrial and heavy-duty applications. Its ergonomic four-position pivoting handle locks into one of four different positions as you work thus totally optimizing your user control and with up-front controls the saw is comfortable simple and generally quicker to use. The saw has high fences for greater cutting capacity especially with crown molding and its superior sliding extensions make working with larger materials a far simpler process.
Lube the blade pivot joint around once per year depending on frequency of use. Wipe saw blades clean after every use. Miter saws are a superior power tool to have on hand and their accuracy durability and portability render them nearly indispensable for many woodworkers. For framing molding and other carpentry applications miter saws are by most accounts the king of the wood-shop. Its hard to find the right amount and caliber of words to adequately describe Boschs new dual-bevel axial-glide miter saw. Because the thing is so far beyond awesome so far beyond any prior expectation of miter saw construction the saw stands to not only entirely innovate the way woodworkers work but the way power tools will be hereafter designed and manufactured. Truly the saw deserves a hats-off moment of silence. In fact it probably deserves a national holiday an Avenue with its name or at very least a few well-crafted paragraphs to lengthily accolade its ingenuity. To begin the Bosch GCM12SD dual-slide axial-glide miter saws patented axial-glide system is nothing short of revolutionary.
The saw does not feature the "soft-start" feature found on some-saws so it does jump a little on startup. I simply have to wait a second or two until the blade has spun up to its full 4600-rpm speed and then make my cut. This gives me a little extra time to consider the cut Im about to make remembering the old adage of "measure twice and cut once. Another feature I really like on this saw is the electric brake on the blade. These brakes immediately slow the blade when you release the trigger. If a blade does not have an electric brake it can spin for 10 seconds or longer which can represent a real hazard to you or to the stock youre removing from the fence. My venerable old table saw (also a Makita) came with the electric brake feature and has made me a real believer in this safety device. Miter saw blades come in a variety of materials. Less expensive blades are usually made of steel and are fine for quick jobs using soft woods such as pine but they will dull quickly if youre using hard woods like oak.
