The amount you want to invest and how serious you are about your woodworking will be the major considerations in deciding what kind of miter saw you get. When it comes to buying miter saws you do tend to get what you paid for. According to the size and the quality of the saw that you choose there often is a significant difference in price. Choosing the best saw that you can afford is in general the best idea. This will make certain that you get the most use out of this very versatile tool.


Compound miter saws generally come in three different sizes 8, 10, and 12 inches. When we speak about a miter saws size we are actually taking about how big the blade is. The larger the piece of wood that you need to cut the larger the blade you will need. The eight inch saw is very limited when it comes to what you can do with it so even though there are three sizes of miter saw available only the larger two are worth serious consideration. The ten and twelve inch options are really the only ones you are going to need to decide between. It is rare that most woodworkers will ever come across a piece of wood that is too large for a ten inch saw so that is usually sufficient for most people. The twelve inch miter saw is intended mostly for professional carpenters who may need to cut through bigger pieces.

The best option when it comes to miter saws is the sliding compound miter saw. With this saw you can not only cut both miters and bevels can also allow you to pull the saw through the work piece after you have lowered it. This allows you to cut larger pieces. The compound miter saw is the step below this, it can’t be pulled through the wood but it can cut miters and bevels. This is still a good option it is just can’t handle pieces as large as the 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 hardly worth considering.
