Normally compound miter saws come in three different sizes eight, ten and twelve inches. When we speak about a miter saws size we are really taking about the size of the blade. The larger the blade the bigger the piece of wood it can cut. The eight inch saw is very limited when it comes to what you can do with it so although there are three sizes of miter saw available only two of them are worth serious consideration. That means that you will need to choose between the ten and twelve inch miter saw. For most people ten inches is sufficient, most woodworkers will hardly ever encounter a piece of wood that a ten inch saw can’t handle.

This is still a useful saw it is just more limited as to the size of wood that it can handle compared to a sliding compound miter saw.
