Miter Saw / November 15, 2018 / OdeletteGervais.
From Germanys Festool the Kapex is a modern marvel of power tool engineering delivering craftsmen some of the most innovative components in the industry. In addition to being essentially the best sliding compound miter saw in the business the Kapex offers some features that truly set it apart from any other model. To name a few the Kapex offers a ridiculously smooth and constant blade speed coupled with variable speed control ensuring your cutting speed is always consistent with each application. The saw also has an ingenious trenching capability which allows craftsmen to cut trenches for smooth and strong joinery or to maneuver around obstacles like pipes as you cut. The Kapex is an extremely precise multipurpose saw but whats more - its surprisingly simple to use.
I quickly realized that the tool of choice would be a compound miter saw especially when tackling the crown moldings. I had suffered through a bookcase project a year earlier using a manual miter box and back saw to produce the crown molding trim on several built-in bookcases. There was no way I wanted to repeat that experience! My wife eager to see the remodeling project underway readily agreed to a new saw purchase. A Saw By Any Other Name Miter (or mitre) saws are designed to make angled cuts in wood stock by pulling a circular blade down in a plunging motion. This action gives the saws their nicknames of "drop saws" or "chop saws." A further refinement the compound miter saw can cut both an angle and a bevel simultaneously removing the need for a "work-and-turn" motion when making an angled cut that will smoothly join to another piece of trim or molding. The double action cut is possible because the motor is attached to a pivoting post which allows the blade to swing both side to side and at an angle to the workpiece.
The CBFB is unique since it is not only a miter saw but can also function as a radial arm saw. Since then Hitachi has continued to be one of the top makers of motorized miter saws. Advantages of Hitachi Miter Saw: Precision is one of the most essential aspects of woodworking and carpentry. Every cut should be accurate. The stakes are high. One small mistake could delay your work. Cut a miter joint an inch more than what is required and you may get to do more work in your workshop. Yes accurate work translates into faster work. And the rate at which you do your woodworking or carpentry work matters. Would it be sad when you do work in your workshop instead of attending your sons baseball match? Would it be better if you finish your woodwork early and spend more quality time with your wife? It certainly is. Hitachi knows this. That is why their miter saws are designed to help you do your job accurately and faster. Hitachi miter saw has unique and adjustable laser marker that users can use to make accurate cuts.
Miter saws are one of the most popular most widely used power tools in the tool industry today. Because of their portability convenient capacities and overall accuracy a miter saw can be found in nearly every wood-shop garage or pickup truck. Miter saws are generally designed to produce fast accurate crosscuts into a workpiece typically for framing or molding applications. The workpiece is pressed up against an angled fence to ensure the most precise cutting angles as you work. The fence generally sits at a 900 angle but can be adjusted as needed for a particular cut. While most miter saws have a miter index that allows users to precisely modify their cut angle in one degree increments most also have capacities which allow for quick and accurate cut stops at common cut angles like 150 300 and 450.
