Is a miter saw something you need when setting up a brand new woodworking shop know if your interest is strictly doing, woodworking projects then get a table saw because there's nothing you can do on a miter saw that can't be done on a table saw, but as A homeowner who's going to be doing lots of home-improvement and repair project. It'S really handy to have a miter saw it's often used in rough construction for say, cutting posts or pieces for a fence or lattice or something like a 2x4. It'S easy to just chop it into pieces.
It'S simple and quick to make those cuts. All you do is take your board line it up against your fence. A couple of things to keep in mind is, of course, keep your hands well away from the blade, and the second thing is to make sure that the blade is running at its full speed before you bring it down onto the board and when you do bring it down onto the board cut through slowly, and that makes it really easy to cut all sorts of materials. I use it for cutting electrical conduit as well as PVC and plumbing drain pipe.
But of course, the reason why it's called a miter saw is that you can make miter cuts in it; in other words, you can pivot the saw to various angles. My saw has the ability to make angle cuts either direction, and it's got markings to show you what angle to set it at. Most of them will lock in place at 45, which is your most common angle.
That'S really handy for installing Cove molding and ceiling trim and, of course, making picture frames. Some miter saws like this one are called compound, miter saws because they also allow you to tilt the blade. But if you're considering buying a miter saw, I would save your money and not get a compound. Miter saw it's just a feature that most of us won't be needing.
I'Ve had this off for about 13 years and I think I've had to tilt the blade. Maybe twice another consideration is the size of the saw itself. This is a 12-inch miter saw which is really more than I need. I rarely cut a board. That'S this wide. I would take the money and get a 10-inch miter saw if I was going to this again plus the blades on Tillich miter saw are much cheaper. Now, of course, this is just a very brief overview of the miter saw. There are a lot of other features to a miter saw and there's a lot of different types of miter saws, including a sliding miter, saw, which will let you cut wider boards. So my recommendation is, for a 10-inch noncompound. Miter saw you'll, be surprised. How many uses you'll find for it around the house? You
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
