How to choose the best Mitre saw
As mitre saws come in several sizes with a range of different functions, it is important to choose the one that best suits your needs. While there are still manual compound and basic chop saws available today, most modern mitre saws are power tools – available in 110v and 240v models. Make sure that you choose the right tool to match your power supply.
The type of mitre saw and blade size that you need will depend on the material that you intend to cut, as well as the angles you want to cut. Different blades are available for cutting wood, mild steel or aluminum, and some blades are made to cut multiple materials. The depth and height of the cut that can be achieved with a specific mitre saw is determined by the diameter of the blade, while the fineness of the cut is determined by the number of teeth the blade has.
Mitre saws are available with a wide range of extra features, such as variable speed settings, extension arms, work-piece clamps, dust collection systems, adjustable rear fences, laser guide systems to assist with accurate cutting, and lights for cutting in low light conditions. If you intend on using your mitre saw frequently, you might be best suited to purchasing models with more extensions., however the choice is yours.
