SAWS 2020
[Document subtitle]


If there’s anyone power “shop saw” or “bench saw” that has made a difference in how carpenters do
their work, it’s the power miter saw. These saws allow carpenters to accurately cut just about any angle
they can think of in architectural moldings, including compound miters, which used to be painstakingly
made by hand. About the only thing that can be done to improve this workhorse, is by making it
cordless… and that has now happened.

Cordless miter saws give professional carpenters and do-it-yourselfers alike the ability to cut and install
moldings in ways never imagined before, and do it with unparalleled convenience. Eliminating the need
for a power cord has meant that these versatile tools can be used virtually anywhere, even if there is no
power to plug into. If you’re doing any sort of finish carpentry work, a cordless miter saw is a necessity.

Today’s saws, which incorporate the ability to do the compound cutting, have greatly eased the burden
on the carpenter, basically eliminating the need to do coping cuts, replacing them with miter cuts, both
for inside and outside corners, including compound miter cuts.

portable battery-powered miter saw around.

or 2x6” material on a miter cut.

Milwaukee 2734-20 10-inch Sliding Compound Miter Saw - Best Value

Click to Purchase

Milwaukee’s entry is new for 2018. This 10” dual-bevel sliding compound miter saw has a larger capacity
than other 10” saws on the market, partially because of the long rails. It can make a 45° miter cut in up
to a 2”x 8” and a 45° bevel cut in a 2”x 12”. The vertical capacity against the fence is 5 ¾”, allowing base
that size or crown molding up to 5 ¼”.

Although this is an 18 volt saw, Milwaukee has a reputation for getting more torque out of their cordless
power tools than anyone else around. So don’t let that scare you. Their RedLithium battery pack is rated
as the most durable pack on the market. a shadow cut line, rather than a laser, helps align cuts perfectly.


Can deliver up to 400 cuts per charge
Horizontal, vertical and cross-cut capacity

Battery Power
It should be no surprise that the battery is the most important component of a cordless system. For your
battery-powered chop saw, you will encounter a wide range of Lithium-ion battery packs that are used
to power it. Today’s battery packs are designed to hold charges of 18-volts or more.

These packs are durable and can be charged many times before you will notice any degradation in
performance. They will also supply a consistent level of power for most of the complete charge as well.

Cutting Variability
Another feature to look for is the cutting ability of the product you are looking at. All miter saws will
crosscut at an angle, but some of these models will also allow you to bevel along the side. That will allow
you to make compound miter cuts.

A working blade guard will be just the beginning of safety elements you should look for. You will also
want to make sure that there is plenty of clearance between the blade and the walls on top of the table,
no matter what angle the blade is set at.
A proper dust extraction connection should be incorporated into the design. Your miter saw will create a
lot of dust and keeping it out of the way allows you to see the cut as well as help components from
clogging up.
