Miter Saw / November 15, 2018 / OdeletteGervais.
Motor Placement: Some saws are built with the motor fixed above of the blade. This makes for easier bevel cuts (especially in thick stock) and typically offers a better line of site while working. Although there is more to every miter saw than the few features listed above these points should help you find the right path to the right saw. Between big cutting capacities bevel adjustments and sliding-tubes there is a miter saw out there that will perfectly compliment your needs. This fact of course brings us right back to our first consideration - that at the end of the day the most important part of any miter saw is its operator.
Blade changes are generally pretty simple so dont avoid blade switching out of inconvenience. Using an improper blade can cost you much more in the long run than a few short minutes to pop on a new blade: when cutting to achieve a cleaner more precise cut use a blade with more teeth for a quicker more rough cut use a blade with fewer teeth when crosscutting be sure to use a crosscut blade and so forth. Blade Changes: To change your blade you first need to remove the guard and pivot the blade mount cover or access plate away from the blade and remove the center nut.
Additionally Boschs 4410L (10") dual-bevel sliding miter saw is another ideal addition your shop or tool shed. Working hard to bring the work of craftsmen and hobbyists to life the tools large pivoting fence and convenient positive stops render the saw truly perfect for home-repair and carpentry projects and although this saws truest reign may only be over the garage it certainly has the capacity to conquer many industrial and heavy-duty applications. Its ergonomic four-position pivoting handle locks into one of four different positions as you work thus totally optimizing your user control and with up-front controls the saw is comfortable simple and generally quicker to use. The saw has high fences for greater cutting capacity especially with crown molding and its superior sliding extensions make working with larger materials a far simpler process.
Slide the guard up slightly. This will reveal the screw that holds the guard to the miter saw. Loosen that screw so that you can slide the blade guard further backward. Slide it back as far as it will go positioning it about 170-degrees behind its usual position. This gives you access to the saws locking pin and blade bolt. Depress the saws locking pin (in the very center of the blade) and spin the saw blade until it locks. If your saw does not have a locking pin wedge your scrap wood (ideally a piece of 2x4) in front of the blade to prevent it from moving. Next using an Allen wrench (or an open-ended wrench) remove the blade bolt. Though many saws have a reverse threaded blade bolt the thread pattern is not universal to all miter saws. Accordingly you should look for an indicator on the tool of which way to loosen the bolt or review your tools manual before going to town on it. Remove the flange and finally remove the blade.
