Make certain to turn the nut in the direction indicated on the saw as most are reverse threaded. While this area of your saw is open you should blow any lingering dust or debris. Dust will accumulate around the center of the blade which can effect the blades alignment and consequently the accuracy of its spin. You should also check the washer and mounting plate for security and for any dust or residual buildup. Simply use any standard scouring pad to remove rust or residue. General Tips: Miter Table Top: Its not only important to keep dust away from your blade its also crucial to keep dust off the miter saw table.

Essentially its important to keep the saw table surface clean but also to keep it slip free for the security of your materials and fingers. Miter Fence: A good fence is crucial for cutting accuracy.
Miter saws can be expensive depending on its types. The manual has lesser features than the power miter saw therefore it could be more expensive. The power miter saw comes up with different types. These are the standard compound sliding compound and dual compound. These are more expensive than the manual because they are known as a power tool that makes special cuts and is more portable. You also have to decide on what dimensions of the blade because miter saws come up with different blade sizes which is also a factor for the price of your miter saw to increase.
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.
Weighing only 24.2 lbs an extremely low and terribly convenient weight for such a powerful and functional tool is extremely easy to move about your home or shop. It can also be easily transported from one job or project to another. This saw provides a welcome and down-sized alternative to the bigger super heavy-duty miter saws of the industry while still offering big power and compound cutting operations. Its 10" capacity is big enough to tackle most heavy applications and its Makita motor is just as powerful as many of the industrys bigger saws. Ultimately this little sucker has a bit more punch than you might expect but rarely does one complain of having a surplus of power and charm as this tool certainly does.
