Hitachi C12FDH 15 Amp 12-Inch Dual Bevel Miter Saw with Laser
Likely the most versatile tools you will ever possess is a Hitachi C12FDH 15 Amp 12-Inch Dual Bevel Miter Saw with Laser, which is why all serious woodworkers have one. They are definitely worth the cost since making a compound cut usually is tricky without one. A miter saw should be amongst the first tools that you purchase because trying to be a woodworker without one is a real hassle.
There can be a significant difference in the price of miter saws. The size, type and quality of the miter saw will largely determine the price. It is generally a good idea to buy the highest quality miter saw that your budget will allow, you will enjoy the benefits of having a good saw. It will save a lot of headaches and make your projects so much simpler if you get a good quality compound miter saw. It is almost always money well spent.
Normally there are three different sizes of compound miter saw, eight, ten and twelve inches. We are actually taking about the size of the blade when we talk about the size of the miter saw. The larger the piece of wood that you need to cut the bigger the blade you will need. The eight inch saw is extremely limited when it comes to what it can do so even though there are three sizes of miter saw available only the larger two are worth serious consideration. Which means that you are going to have to decide between the ten and twelve inch miter saw. It is rare that most woodworkers would ever come across a piece of wood that is too big for a ten inch saw so that is normally sufficient for most needs. The twelve inch miter saw is intended mainly for professional carpenters who frequently need to cut through bigger pieces.
The sliding compound miter saw is the top of the line when it comes to miter saws. With this saw you can not only cut both miters and bevels you are also able to pull the saw through the work piece after you have lowered it. This means you can cut larger pieces of wood. the next step below this is the compound miter saw it will allow you to cut both miters and bevels but aren’t able to pull it through the wood. Most people find this to be a good option it is just can’t handle pieces as large as the sliding compound miter saw. A standard miter saw is the cheapest option but since it is incapable of cutting bevels it is extremely limited and not really worth considering.
