Miter Saw / October 25, 2018 / Albertina Davide.
A saw with a compound feature is called as compound miter saw or CMS. - A slide allows the cutting blade to be moved several inches along the cutting plane which in turn allows the cutting blade to make cuts which are longer than the diameter of the blade. A slide which combines the features of slide and compound miter saw is called as sliding compound miter saw or SCMS. - A laser guide gives the exact indication of where the cut will be made in the work piece in the arrangement. - A blade guard is a cover for the sharp teeth of the cutting blade. Most modern saws have a self retracting blade guard which automatically retract when the blade is lowered onto a work piece and re-cover the blade when it is raised. One question that a lot of people have when they are buying a miter saw is just how wide of a cut can be made with this particular saw. In this article we will look at how big a cut a 10 inch miter saw can make since they are by far the most common size. We will also discuss what you can do if you need to make a bigger cut. A standard 10 inch miter saw can handle cuts of up to six inches in most cases.
For starters a sliding compound miter saw is designed with two rail-like tubes that allow the blade to move back and forth in a larger range of motion. This grows crosscutting capacity by a few inches and allows users to through-cut wider boards (usually with one easy pass). Because of these tubes though sliding compound miters saws are typically heavier they are less portable and theyre more expensive. With the exception of some Bosch and Makita saws that utilize a kind of articulating arm in lieu of sliding-tubes sliding compound miters also require more room (especially at the rear of the saw) to work properly.
The most portable power miter saw has a blade of eight (8) to twelve (12) inches. The power miter saws cut your woodwork in a certain motion and is against a fence where it produces an angle that is so precise. Since the birth of the first chop saw miter saws have steadily become more advanced more popular and incredibly more useful. In fact where precision crosscuts and accurate miters are concerned there is scarcely a better tool than a miter saw. Allowing users to work faster and with far greater accuracy to perform compound miter cuts bevel cuts and to work with larger pieces of material the multipurpose miter saw is a tool that little else can contest.
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.
