One of the most useful tools in any work shop is the Hitachi C10FSB 12 Amp 10-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw . Not only are these saws the only practical way to make a compound angle cut, they are versatile enough that they can accomplish a wide variety of jobs. Without the right tool a compound angle cut can be a real hassle, and you can be sure that at some point you will find it necessary to make one. A compound miter saw allows you to set the miter angle and the bevel before you make the cut ensuring that you get an accurate cut every time.

A compound miter saw is a saw that can cut both miters and angles at the same time. This is what is known as a compound angle cut. The way you do this is to take a miter saw that allows you to cut angles and allow it to tilt so that it can cut bevels. Compound miter saws can be tilted to cut bevels of up to 45 degrees, if you need a steeper bevel than that you will need to switch sides. This can be quite time consuming if you need to make a lot of compound angle cuts so some manufacturers have started offering saws like the Hitachi C10FSB 10-Inch Sliding Dual Compound Miter Saw that can be tilted in both directions, this can save you a lot of time.

In order to cut miters you need to be able to adjust the angle of the saw to both the right and the left. All miter saws will allow you to go to the right or the left at angles of up to 45 degrees. Over the years it has become apparent there is often a need to make cuts that are slightly over 45 degrees so a lot of saws now offer this feature. This another of those features that isn't necessary but you will really appreciate having.

A good miter saw like the Hitachi C10FSB should have a miter gauge that you can adjust quickly and easily and it should be easy to read. There should also be hard stops at all of the major angles as well as the ability to lock in any angle that you need to cut. All of this should be very secure and locked in tightly, the last thing you want is your work piece moving around while you are trying to cut it.

Probably the most important consideration when choosing a miter saw is selecting the right size. Usually bigger is better since it will allow you to cut larger pieces of wood. The problem is that the price can increase pretty drastically as you start to get into larger saws. The 8 inch model is the smallest normally available, it is inexpensive but quite limited. The largest standard model is the 12 inch, it can handle almost anything but comes with a big price tag. The 10 inch model falls in the middle and is the most commonly selected size. A sliding compound miter saw will allow you to increase your cutting capacity even further but it will also increase the price, however most people find this feature to be money well spent. You really can't go wrong with the Hitachi C10FSB 12 Amp 10-Inch Dual Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw .
