In regards to the cost of miter saws there can be a significant difference in price from one miter saw to another. By and large the difference in cost is determined by what kind of miter saw, the size and the quality. You will definitely appreciate the benefits of having a good saw so you are going to want to get the best saw your budget will allow. It will save a lot of hassle and make your projects a lot more pleasant if you have a top quality compound miter saw. It is almost always a good investment.

Normally compound miter saws come in three different sizes 8, 10, and 12 inches. When we talk about the size of a miter saw we are actually speaking about how big the blade is. The larger the blade the bigger the piece of wood it can cut. The eight inch saw is extremely limited when it comes to what you can do with it so even though 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 options. For most people ten inches is sufficient, most woodworkers will never come across a piece of wood that a ten inch saw can’t handle.

The sliding compound miter saw is usually the best option when it comes to miter saws. This type of saw will not only allow you to cut both miters and bevels you are also able to pull the saw through the wood after you have lowered it. This makes it possible to cut larger pieces of wood. Below this is the compound miter saw it will allow you to cut both miters and bevels but it can’t be pulled through the wood. It is more limited in the size of wood that it can handle compared to the sliding compound miter saw but it is still a useful tool. A standard miter saw is unable to cut bevels which seriously limits its usefulness to the point that it is hardly worth considering, but it is the least expensive option.
