Miter Saw / November 30, 2018 / Tina Abrahamsson
The bigger the blade the more expensive it will cost you but most of the time bigger blades have more uses than the smaller ones. In choosing the right miter saw you have to decide on whether you will buy the manual or the compound miter. You also have to compare its prices or on how much money are you willing to spend for a miter saw. You also have to pick which is more suitable and useful for your work. A manual or a standard miter saw would be helpful for you if you only intend to make simple cuts on your woodwork while the compound is for more complex woodworks.
If you can use the entire 4-foot width of the Melamine or particle board by all means do so especially if your miter saw is of the "sliding compound miter" type. As for overall table height I would suggest that you build the miter saw table so that the top of the table comes to your belt line when standing. This will give you a comfortable working height and still allow you to bend over the table. There should be a gap cut through saw table top in the area where the saw is to be mounted. This gap must be exactly as wide as the top of your miter saw and must be open to the front of the table. The gap should close behind the top of the miter saw.
And time is of the essence in woodworking and carpentry. There are times when you just need to finish a piece in a hurry. To make your woodworking or carpentry job faster you may need to get a power miter saw. Essential Uses of a Power Miter Saw: Also known as a chop saw or a drop saw the miter saw is every craftsman and carpenters best friend. It does not only help in making miter joints faster but it can also be used in other applications. Framing is one of the fastest building techniques. To facilitate framing construction carpenters need the right tools. One of the essential tools that carpenters will have is the power miter saw. In framing construction lots of frames are needed to be made in a short span of time. A miter saw does not only help in cutting frames at a fast rate but it also ensures that the frames are accurately cut. Molding is another essential construction material.
