Miter Saw / November 4, 2018 / Fiore Calabrese.
A slightly more expensive and far better alternative is to use a metal track or tracks with a flip-up stop and measuring tape built in. Such a device is manufactured by Kreg Tools and is available in 4-foot track lengths that can be butted together to make longer lengths. My miter saw table requires four 4-foot tracks two for each side of the saw. The track is mounted to the top of the wooden fence you just made. You will have to adjust the height of the wooden fence (2 1/4"+ above the table top) so that the bottom of the flip-up stop clears the table by about 1/16" in the down position. The nice thing about the flip-up stop is that it can be flipped up out of the way without losing its measurement setting along the measuring tape.
Apple Computer Inc. began its operations in Steve Jobs cramped garage. Likewise Google Inc. was formally formed at the garage of Larry Page and Sergey Brins friend. What makes technology companies with small beginnings grow into large and successful corporations is their dedication to innovation and quality two attributes which Hitachi Ltd. had never tired of demonstrating. Like Google and Apple Hitachi began as a small business. The company started as an electrical repair shop in 1910. With its passion for innovation and quality Hitachi quickly climbed the ladder of success. Today Hitachi is the worlds third largest tech company in terms of revenue. The company is known as one of the top manufacturers of various products like Mainframe computers LCD projectors optical disk drives mobile phones and power tools. And when it comes to power tools Hitachi makes one of the best in the world. One of the premier power tools that Hitachi manufactures is the Hitachi miter saw. Hitachi Miter Saw: Innovation has been the trademark of Hitachi throughout its existence. In 1988 Hitachi engineers made a landmark product: the first sliding compound miter saw (CBFB).
Lube the blade pivot joint around once per year depending on frequency of use. Wipe saw blades clean after every use. Miter saws are a superior power tool to have on hand and their accuracy durability and portability render them nearly indispensable for many woodworkers. For framing molding and other carpentry applications miter saws are by most accounts the king of the wood-shop. Its hard to find the right amount and caliber of words to adequately describe Boschs new dual-bevel axial-glide miter saw. Because the thing is so far beyond awesome so far beyond any prior expectation of miter saw construction the saw stands to not only entirely innovate the way woodworkers work but the way power tools will be hereafter designed and manufactured. Truly the saw deserves a hats-off moment of silence. In fact it probably deserves a national holiday an Avenue with its name or at very least a few well-crafted paragraphs to lengthily accolade its ingenuity. To begin the Bosch GCM12SD dual-slide axial-glide miter saws patented axial-glide system is nothing short of revolutionary.
Before mounting the fence or fences to the miter saw table top draw a pencil or chalk line where the front of the fence is to be positioned. Take a long straightedge lay it flat on the miter saws metal table and push one edge of it long the miter saws metal fence. Keeping it in this position draw a pencil line along the table top out as far as possible. Repeat on the opposite side of the saw if you have tables on both sides of the saw. Extend this pencil line as far as possible. Place the fence along the pencil line with the end of the wooden fence almost touching the end of miter saws metal fence. (Leave a 1/16" gap between the wooden fence and the metal fence.) Drill appropriately sized holes for the lag screws through the table top and into the 2x4 joist underneath the table top (one for each slot).
