The amount you can afford to invest and how serious you are about your woodworking will be the two biggest considerations in determining what kind of miter saw you get. You normally get your moneys worth when you buy a miter saw. There is a significant difference in price depending on the size and the quality of the saw that you buy. In general the best advice is to choose the best saw that your budget will allow. This will help make certain that you get the most benefit out of this very versatile tool.


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.

The top of the heap when it comes to miter saws is the sliding compound miter saw. With this type of saw you are able to pull the saw through the wood after you have lowered it, are also able to cut miters and bevels. This makes it possible to 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. 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. A standard miter saw is the next step down but since it not able to cut bevels it is extremely limited and not really worth considering.
