How do you get a Shadow Line on a miter saw?

Once the blade guard and plastic piece are removed I take a bit of gaffers tape and tape the LED light to the top of the saw hood.

This particular saw uses a 12” blade, so the top of the saw hood is very large.

What kind of cut can a miter saw make?

What is the function of a compound miter saw?

If you do, it’ll be easy to guess the function of a compound miter saw. But if not: A compound cut features not only a miter (an angled crosscut), but also a bevel (a sloped cut). So a compound cut is both angled and beveled – which is exactly what a compound miter saw allows you to do.

What are the advantages of a sliding miter saw?

One advantage of 12" sliding miter saws is the increased crosscut capacity they provide, particularly when making vertical cuts with the stock standing up against the fence. I find it the quickest and most accurate way to cut molding. You might not use the extra capacity of a 12" saw every day, but when the time comes, you'll be glad it's there.
