Miter Saw / November 30, 2018 / Tina Abrahamsson
I. Compound Miter Saws On a compound miter saw the blade moves in three general directions. First the blade moves up and down in a chopping motion. Second the blade moves about 45-degrees to the left and right for miter cuts and lastly the blade will lean either to the left or to the left and right to perform bevel and double bevel cuts. Although compound miter saws are typically more portable and less expensive than sliding compound miter saws they also have less capacity for wider boards. Most often a compound miter saw will be unable to through-cut a wide board with a single pass. II. Sliding Compound Miter Saws A sliding compound miter saw does all of the things a compound miter saw does while also adding a few more things to the pot.
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.
Producing a virtually unparalleled smoothness of cut the tool is unbelievably precise and offers optimal operator control throughout every conceivable working condition. The new axial system completely replaces the miter saws former and comparatively underdeveloped rail system with two multi-joint articulating (or hinged) arms which appear more akin to a space-robot than a power tool. These cast-iron arms also ensure the saw remains properly aligned and calibrated despite time and unfavorable environments. Additionally the saws axial design is not only responsible for its unmatched durability and crazy-smooth precision but it also folds to sit flush with the back of the saw saving up to 12" of workspace compared with a standard sliding compound miter saw.
