Miter saw - a tool that is used to cut different materials at a given angle. Miter saws can cut different materials such as wood, plastic, aluminum and some other materials. The choice of a miter saw is based on work you intend to do: for specialists (finishers, framers, installers), a professional tool is most suitable; amateur home masters are better off choosing a household saw.
Professional-grade tools are present on the market with products from global manufacturers such as Dewalt, Ryobi, Bosch. A feature of a professional miter saw is its high reliability and extended service life. Such equipment is intended for heavy use and is able to work with large workpieces. In addition, professional models are more adapted to perform quality cuts, sometimes they are also equipped with speed controllers that allow you to work with different materials.
A household miter saw can also be equipped with disks for processing all kinds of materials, from wood and plastic to non-ferrous metals and even steel. True, such a tool is not intended for daily use and is rarely equipped with more electronics.
The power of the miter saw affects the duration of its operation, as well as the overall load of the tool. And if the power of household saws varies up to 1400 watts, then a professional tool can have a power of up to 2000 watts.
Another parameter of the miter saw - the number of revolutions - determines the speed of rotation of its blade, and, therefore, also affects the performance of the unit. The saw blade is characterized by a landing and outer diameter, and the capabilities of the tool depend on the profile of the teeth: the material with which it can work, and the cutting speed.
Equally important is the weight of the miter saw - it determines the comfort of using the tool and the duration of its continuous operation.
When choosing equipment, pay attention to its safety manual. First and foremost, a transparent protective cover provides the visibility of the working canvas. Secondly, it’s good when the saw has the ability to connect to a vacuum cleaner. Manufacturers can equip their tools with other useful functions, which can turn the work into a pleasant time.
