Miter Saw / November 30, 2018 / Tina Abrahamsson
Molding is used to cover transitions between surfaces. Aside from that molding is also used to decorate surfaces. In the old days carpenters struggle in cutting many pieces of moldings. Sweating from cutting moldings can be avoided with the help of a power miter saw. Portability: Aside from helping woodworkers and carpenters work faster and make accurate cuts a power miter saw has other advantages. For one thing a miter saw is designed to be portable. Portability is an excellent feature if you are doing carpentry or woodworking jobs in various places. The Benefit of Working Fast: Woodworking and carpentry are enjoyable occupations and hobbies. In the old days wives complain that their husbands were not allotting much time talking with them and kids grumble that their dads were not attending their Sunday baseball or football games. Daddies are simply spending too much time in the workshop. Of course that is before the advent of power tools like miter saws. Well your family is much important than your work or hobby. As much as possible you should spend time talking and having fun with your family. And that is what you will get if you have a miter saw.
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.
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.
