Buyer's Guide: Best 10 Inch Sliding Miter Saw

The Advantages Of A 10 Inch Sliding Miter Saw

The first few times I saw someone using a 10-inch sliding miter saw, I thought "that is the best saw I have ever seen." It seemed to cut the wood effortlessly and gave a nice clean line every time. A friend of mine told me it was a monster but that he used it everyday for building stuff. Well, let me see if I can tell you about the 10 inch miter saw and what its advantages are.

First, let me say this: the saw is pretty impressive. The saw comes fully loaded with features like a dust collection tray and dual locking tail cutters. It also has a large drum where the dust collection tray sits while the saw is in use. This feature cuts down on the dust and makes the saw last longer.

The second thing I noticed about the saw is the size of the blade. I mean, the blade itself is big enough to cut wet wood at a fast decent speed. While the 10-inch saws on the market are already good enough in many cases, there will be some cuts you will get better with a bigger blade. For example, many pocketknife models have blades up to two inches long, while a ten-inch version will be fine for many home jobs. The only real benefit of having a longer blade is that you will be able to cut through more layers of woods.

How about the actual saw itself? Well, it comes with a cord with multiple extensions. That is good because it means you do not have to waste a bunch of money buying extension cords. The actual saw itself is very well built. There is no wobble and the finish on the saw is very nice.

The only real complaint I have is that you cannot cut straight with a miter saw. You need to be at an angle when cutting, or you will get a clean seam. Also, if you are not comfortable reaching far back with the saw, you may find that reaching for the blade is hard. If you don't mind this you can easily reach the entire length of the blade. If you need to cut a straight line, however, you will probably want to consider either a table saw or a ripping blade.

Here is another feature to consider: the price. While the 10-inch miter saw is more expensive than most other saws, it does have many more features. For example, the table saw has a tapered bench top which will cut your material down to the exact length you need. The 12-inch blade is also longer than a 10-inch miter saw, but it cuts just as fast. In addition, you do not need to purchase a separate blade or saw helper to complete the project.

Another thing to think about is safety. While most saws allow you to switch out the blade very quickly, some saws may require you to remove the blade from the unit. If you are thinking about doing any type of manual work like sanding or polishing, you could be at risk for an accident. Table saws allow you to pull the saw off of the table and use it safely. It is usually very easy to lock in the position you want and it is very unlikely that you will accidentally cut yourself on the blade while attempting to change the blade. Lastly, a circular saw cut will be safer than a regular wood saw because the saw is much heavier.

It is important to understand how a miter saw cuts to get the best results. While you can cut with a regular wood cutting wheel or with a power saw, you will probably get faster results using a miter saw. Also, a miter saw is easier to use because the fence of the blade is straight and does not require you to make a ninety-degree angle cut. If you plan to buy a saw similar to this one, you should try to find one with a good fence.
